Languages of publication
“Lower Lid Blepharoplasty-Entropion-Ectropion Oculoplastic Procedures Cadaveric Dissection Course” was performed in Bahcesehir University School of Medicine on February 19th, 2017 with the participation of 20 ophthalmologists. Lower eyelid anatomy, lower eyelid entropion-ectropion surgical techniques, subciliary and transconjunctival approach to lower eyelid blepharoplasty, prevention and management methods of surgical complications were shown on the fresh frozen cadaveric eyelids. All the participants were able to follow anatomic demonstrations and surgical techniques performed on the master table by experienced surgeons through live broadcasting. The stages of the lower eyelid cadaveric dissection and details of the anatomical structures were presented to the participants by the recording, reproducing, or broadcasting of moving visual images. Cadaveric workshops as a primary modality of simulation based surgical skills training have been used for a few years in Turkey. Although cadaveric dissection training has some disadvantages such as tissue loss, degeneration of anatomical key points, diversification in the structure, lack of experience in live tissue tonus, difficulties in providing cadavers, and high cost; it is the gold standard technique for surgical skill transfer in eyelid surgery.
