This two-day course will aim to give delegates an introduction to some of the less commonly performed soft tissue procedures including thoracic surgery. While lecture content will discuss some of the indications and after-care, the emphasis of the day will be on how to carry out the operations. Extensive cadaver based practical sessions over both days will allow hands-on experience and tips and tricks to optimise outcomes will also be discussed.
