This workshop introduces the main principles of phlebology. An explanation on anatomy and physiology of the vascular system of the lower limbs as well as therapy for varicose veins according to the newest guidelines will lead the participants to make a positive and differential diagnosis of vascular diseases of the lower limbs and perform several therapeutic procedures used in phlebology (e.g. sclerotherapy). Three rotating stations will show production of sclerosing foam, injection of spider veins and duplex guided injection techniques.
This workshop introduces the advanced signs of chronic venous disease. The pathophysiology and clinical picture of chronic venous disease, post-thrombotic syndrome and venous leg ulcers will be explained. The skin changes in in venous disease of the lower leg will show and are discussed. The sclerotherapy of varicose veins according to the newest guidelines will be explained. Three rotating stations will demonstrate the production of sclerosing foam, injection of spider veins and duplex guided injection techniques and then performed by the participants themselves. Differential diagnosis of skin changes in venous disease and of leg ulcers is learned by discussing pictures of clinical cases. In addition there will be some time to discuss questions around indications, techniques, side effects and results of sclerotherapy and other venous techniques.
08:30 - 11:45 Advanced surgery workshop (morning) Chairs: Robert Gniadecki (Copenhagen, Denmark) Annik Van Rengen (Dordrecht, Netherlands) Ehud Miller (Tel Aviv, Israel)
13:15 - 16:30 Advanced surgery workshop (afternoon) Chairs: Robert Gniadecki (Copenhagen, Denmark) Annik Van Rengen (Dordrecht, Netherlands) Ehud Miller (Tel Aviv, Israel)
The advanced surgery workshop is repeated twice: once in the morning, once in the afternoon.
Excisions and closures of of surgical wounds is challenging for many dermatologists. The aim of this interactive session is to close this gap and review different types of facial closures, both primary closures and flaps. There will be focus on the methods achievable for the participants with basic surgery training and experience with the advanced reconstruction in different regions of the face.
These courses use materials provided by selected sponsors. Participants should be aware that there are a variety of different, similar products that they can use beyond the ones provided during the workshop.
