Although direct exposure to procedures in the operating theater environment, together with practice on laboratory animals, is still seen as the gold standard of teaching in microsurgery, practice on nonliving simulators is currently being validated as an important educational tool. We reviewed the widely used nonliving training models, together with(More)
BACKGROUND Periprosthetic orbital haemorrhage is an uncommon complication of the alloplastic implants used in post-traumatic orbital floor repair. The small case series or individual reports provide no definite causative explanation for this delayed bleeding around silicone implants. It is likely that it is related to the disruption of fine capillaries(More)
Loupes are commonly used when high demands of visual performance are needed. This article will review the available information on who should use loupes, and provide a guide on when and how to use them. Purchasing this piece of equipment should not yield to a pressure to be ‘equipped’ for certain procedures, nor should it copy other surgeon’s choices(More)
The rat kidney transplant (KTx) became a classic experimental model for training purposes in general microsurgical techniques. We present a modified version of the arterial ‘sleeve’ (telescoping) anastomotic technique. A cohort of rat kidney transplants executed with this modified anastomotic technique was audited for execution times, long-term graft(More)

The aim of this study is to evaluate the amount of training needed by a trainee, with no background in microsurgery, in order to achieve proper skills for microvascular anastomosis. A protocol based on the rat femoral artery was established to provide a quantitative representation. Five inexperienced subjects started performing microvascular anastomosis.(More)
In an era of reduced training hours for registrars, outpatient follow-up becomes an important tool in acquiring confidence in the management of various conditions. We audited the follow-up pattern for the metacarpal fractures operated by registrars only, in a tertiary referral centre, over a period of 18 months. Of 71 operated patients, 38% were seen at(More)
