AO CMF NA Computer Aided Maxillofacial Surgery (with Human Anatomical Specimens)

Join world-renowned experts in discussions and lab exercises focused on applying digital tools—such as virtual reconstruction—to complex maxillofacial surgeries, November 11-13, 2022, Tampa, Florida

  • Description

    During this course, world-renowned experts will give lectures on topics in congenital, post-trauma & oncologic reconstruction, intra-operative imaging, navigation, microvascular and orthognathic surgery.

    After the lecture series, participants will complete three different surgical modules:

    1. Post traumatic orbito-zygomatic reconstruction
    2. Mandibular reconstruction (fibula free flap)
    3. Orthognathic reconstruction

    Participants will first perform a virtual reconstruction (pre-surgical plan) for each scenario. Then they will move into the lab to complete the pre-planned surgical repair. The laboratory session will include access to intra-operative imaging tools (navigation and CT) for real time feedback during the repair. Finally, participants will compare their pre-surgical virtual plan to the actual reconstruction.

    Learning will be delivered through

    • Hands on lab exercises with human anatomical specimens
    • Small group case-based discussions
    • Lectures
  • Learning objectives

    Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to
    Display current knowledge regarding computer aided surgical planning and intra-operative navigation in the field of maxillofacial surgery
    Identify appropriate applications for computer aided pre-surgical planning and intra-operative navigation for treatment of traumatic, neoplastic and congenital diseases
    Discuss the applicability of computer aided techniques when analyzing postoperative results and outcome analysis
    Demonstrate the psychomotor skills to necessary to perform both pre-surgical planning and intra-operative navigation
    Generate a pre-surgical plan using computer aided planning software
    Apply intra-operative navigation to guide fracture reduction and hardware placement
    Evaluate the applicability of computer aided techniques when analyzing postoperative results and outcome analysis
    Explain the indications for and application of patient specific cutting guides and implants

  • Who should attend

    Practicing surgeons, residents, and fellows in oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery, otolaryngology surgery, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, and other surgical specialties.
