Course website.

This is a practical course which will be held in the well known wet-lab of Fred van Immerseel. During this two-day hands-on dissection course you will learn how to expose all the major nerves of the upper limb. The relation of the median nerve to the carpal tunnel syndrome, and the ulnar nerve to the cubital tunnel syndrome and  Guyon’s canal will be studied. You will gain experience in neurolysis and transposition. Furthermore, the approach of both the supraclavicular as well as the infraclavicular part of the brachial plexus will be practised and all elements will be identified . Specific nerve transfers can be practised on request. Additionally attention will be paid to the  course of the main vessels.

The course consists of four half-day sessions. Each session starts with a brief theoretical introduction. The practical part of the training will start with a short cadaver surgical demonstration. Subsequently, participants will dissect themselves under the supervision of an experienced staff.

Prior to the course all participants will receive the course manual. The course will be English spoken if non-Dutch speaking participants will attend.  The course takes place under the auspices of the Dutch Society for Neurosurgery.
