Breakfast Symposium

Contemporary use of Dermal Matrices in the Reconstruction of Traumatic Wounds

  • Friday 28 October
  • From 07:00am
  • FREE for registered delegates - includes breakfast

Symposium Overview

Traumatic wounds often result in extensive soft-tissue loss requiring reconstructive surgery to achieve wound closure. Complicated by large surface areas, exposed avascular structures and a high risk of infection, wound closure and reconstructive options can be limited.

The Symposium will focus on sharing clinical insight and in-depth discussion on dermal matrices as a reconstructive tool for traumatic wounds. The latest generation of dermal matrices are of synthetic origin, providing robustness in the presence of infection, thereby increasing options for reconstruction of traumatic wounds. With expert opinion, this session will provide insights into how a synthetic dermal matrix can be a reconstructive tool for complex traumatic wounds.

Through case examples, the presentations will explore appropriate patient selection, surgical technique, and management to optimise patient outcomes.

The session will run for approaximately 60 minutes, and feature two Keynote Speakers (TBA) and panel/audience discussion.

Breakfast is included.
