Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

we would like to invite you to join the MediconCourses 2013 in the disciplines of Craniomaxillofacial Surgery, ENT- and Plastic Surgery.

The mentors of the MediconCourses are experienced and well-known specialist in their particular surgical disciplines.

The courses are characterized by the combination of approved theory and its direct practice at selected surgical cases. The participants have the possibility to exchange opinion with the course mentor directly at the operating table.

The attendance per course is limited to a maximum of 5 - 10 participants per surgery. This ensures the high quality standard of the workshops.

During the two-day event, the following parts of the course are scheduled:

  • Theoretic development of the topic
  • Planning preparation of one or several surgeries
  • Participation as observer directly at the operation table
  • Comprehensive experience not only in subject-specific approach and surgical technique, but also in the organization of the surgery, technique and resource management

Rehabilitation of Facial Defects with Osseointegrated Implants,
Prof. Dr. Dr. M. Klein, Hornheide, June

Dear colleagues,

The rehabilitation of patients with craniofacial defects through plastic surgery is an important issue in the Fachklinik Hornheide. Sometimes it is not possible or desirable to rebuild the missing tissue by plastic surgery. Especially in the case of total loss of a nose, an ear or lid structures, particularly with elderly patients, implant retained facial prostheses are a good alternative treatment in repairing these defects. Our clinic has been a center of excellence for more than 80 years, handling and manufacturing facial prostheses after ablative tumour surgery or trauma, in full rehabilitation of patients.

It will be a pleasure for us to share our concept of surgery and rehabilitation with you.

My colleagues and I look forward to seeing you in June in Münster.

With kind regards,
Prof. Dr. Dr. M. Klein
Head of Department

2nd Recklinghausen Course on Ear Reconstruction,
Dr. R. Magritz, Recklinghausen, September

Dear colleagues,

there are many reasons to care about the two organs framing the head. The most important thing is: You can make many patients happy, when you care about their unique shape.

We have specialized in reconstructive and aesthetic auricular surgery for many years and have reconstructed more than one thousand malformed or amputated auricles up to now.

Several colleagues have visited us to learn and share their experience with us. Numerous professionals have asked us for a course especially focused on auricular reconstruction but also including a practical guide to manage minor abnormalities.
 
After a very successful first course last year we will present an overview on our clinical experience. You can observe our surgeries and we assist you individually during our special carving and sculpturing workshop at this international course on auricular surgery.

We hope you will enjoy the course, go home with new experience and be able to use them in your daily work for your patients benefit right away.

Prof. Dr. Dr. Ralf Siegert & Dr. Ralph Magritz

8th Course of Orthognathic Surgery: Monomaxillary & Bimaxillary Corrections,
Prof. Dr. Dr. H. Eufinger, Recklinghausen, September

Dear colleagues,

although the treatment modalities of maxillofacial deformities offer an ample scope for many different points of view, the object of this workshop is to express the view of this ever interesting and evolving field in our department. Since 2005 we provide a yearly based springcongress on surgical orthodontics. Now we would like to share our experience in this field with you - based on a yearly number of more than 150 patients with more than 200 surgical orthodontic corrections every year. As teamwork does not tolerate the inconvenience of distance, we are proud of being able to kindly invite you for this open minded hands-on surgical workshop.

It is our ambition to create an atmosphere of excellence in which we can share and discuss our experience and would like to present you beside the surgical procedures of monomaxillary and bimaxillary orthognatic corrections a range of cutting edge case documentations. Furthermore we offer discussion on the scope of pre- and postoperative planning. My team and me are looking forward to meeting and hosting you in our department!

2nd Course of Primary & Secondary Rhinoplasty,
Prof. Dr. W. Gubisch, Stuttgart, September

Dear colleagues,

Rhinoplasties are the most common surgical procedures in the face but this operation has also one of the highest failure rates. This has different reasons.Each rhinoplasty affects the shape as well as the function. Both aspects have to be considered in planning such a procedure. The reasons for the high failure rate are mainly insufficient analysis, imprecise or inadequate techniques, rough tissue handling and mainly limited experience.

Since 20 years we offer courses for functional and aesthetic rhinoplasties.We are convinced that the greatest benefit results from live surgery and intensive discussions with the surgeon. After developing and designing a rhinoplasty instrument set together with Medicon eG I was asked through them if I would offer such a two days workshop for interested colleagues. This is fine for us and I invite you to come to Stuttgart. It will be a pleasure for us to demonstrate to you the newest techniques and our concept in this challenging field of surgery.

With kind regards,
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Gubisch

4th Epiplating System,
PD Dr. P. Federspil, Heidelberg, October

Surgical management of craniofacial defects with implant-retained prostheses ("epistheses")

Dear colleagues,

The first extraoral application of osseointegrated titanium implants for craniofacial defects dates back more than three decades. This event marked a great improvement in the management of craniofacial defects by bone-anchored craniofacial prostheses ("epistheses"). Since then, numerous efforts have been made to improve the applicability and outcome in adverse anatomical situations. One result of the evolutionary process was the development of the Epiplating System by Medicon eG in collaboration with Prof. P. Federspil, Ph. A. Federspil and M.Schneider (Anaplastolgist). It basically consists of titanium miniplates adapted to the needs of anaplastology. Over more than 10 years, the Epiplating System proved to be very versatile, allowing to place implants in (almost) all defects. The aim of this course is to give a very practical insight in the Epiplating System. To be as interactive as possible, we limited the number of course participants. You will assist surgical cases live in the OR next to the surgeon. Later in the dry lab, you will have the opportunity of bending and handling the plates yourself.

We would be very happy to welcome you in Heidelberg for this course.

With kind regards,

1st Course: Access Surgery for Oral & Maxillofacial Tumors,
PD Dr. Dr. M. Kesting, München, December

Dear colleagues,

management of oral and maxillofacial tumors is one of the most challenging fields in our discipline. The surgical part includes tumor ablation, lymph node dissection and reconstructive techniques. Among these procedures the removal of the tumor mass with clear margins is the most pivotal one. Tumor free margins strongly influence patients prognosis. Accessibility to the different tumor locations of the oral and maxillofacial region is limited by the complex anatomy. Tumors of the posterior maxilla, the tongue base or the infratemporal region can not be resected transorally and therefore need alternative approaches.
During the current course we would like to share our experience in this field with you. We invite you to a hands-on surgical workshop on Thiel-embalmed cadavers. Special focus of the course is paid on practical exercise. After detailed case presentations we will give you an anatomical introduction followed by the teaching of access surgery in a step-by-step manner.

Enjoy your time with us in Pre-Christmas Munich!

With kind regards,

Priv. Doz. Dr. Dr. M. Kesting
