This course provides you with the practical knowledge for an individual surgical procedure.
After this course, you have:
- a clear understanding of the steps to be taken to execute the procedure;
- seen an example of how the procedure is executed;
- a clear understanding of all anatomical structures encountered during the procedure;
- seen an example of how the anatomical structures look within the setting of the procedure.
Step by step
Identify the resting skin tension lines and the lines of maximal extensibility. This will help determine where to place your markings.
Mark the defect and draw the flap (in this case a rectangle). Take the lines of maximal extension into account. At the base of the square draw 2 small triangles (Burrovs’ triangles).
