Management of Neck Dissection

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 experiences 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,

PD Dr. Dr. J. Weitz
