Facial Paralysis Reconstruction” at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Linkou, Taiwan. The faculty performed a total of 8 live surgeries, with four various types of muscle transplants (gracilis, latissimus dorsi, pectoralis minor, and serratus anterior), three different motor neurotizers (contralateral facial nerve, masseter nerve, and spinal accessory nerve) and various innovative techniques to improve surgical efficiencies. The surgeries in the morning were followed by educational lectures in the afternoon that included advances in surgical techniques, controversial issues and current trends in facial reanimation. We concluded with an interactive Q & A section between the participants and the faculty that gave our members an exclusive opportunity to ask questions and express their opinions. The instructional course was a tremendous success, as our Honorary Chairman, Professor Ronald Zuker said, “It was very exciting to see the experts operating and extremely educational for all who attended”.
Eight years have passed, and we will once again host the 2nd Instructional Course for Facial Paralysis Reconstruction in April 14-16, 2020. To update with current trends in facial reanimation, we have included corneal neurotization, platysma muscle transfer for lagophthalmos, and temporalis lengthening myoplasty to our lives surgeries. We have invited 10 international and 3 domestic faculties, and have added one more day to our course for more educational content. The basic format will be live surgeries in the morning, educational lectures in the afternoon, and conclude with Q&A in the last day.
We cordially invite you to Chang Gung Memorial Hospital to participate in this unique, once in a lifetime course in demand. We believe this is an extraordinary opportunity to meet and learn from leading experts in the word in facial reanimation.
We are very much looking forward to meeting you in Taiwan.
Craniofacial distraction osteogenesis was first implemented 30 years ago in New York University’s Department of Plastic Surgery. Since that time this technique has become a standard intervention to skeletal reconstruction which continues to evolve and find itself in the armamentarium used to treat some of the most challenging skeletal deformities treated by craniofacial surgeons. This two-day course will review all cardinal procedures and innovations in craniofacial distraction.
