Course Introduction

Soft tissue coverage of the upper extremity continues to be a challenging and evolving field. The priorities in soft tissue reconstruction for the upper extremity are to restore form and function. In the era of free flaps, local flap coverage options for the upper extremity are sometimes forgotten. Therefore, we designed a two-day course with theoretical and practical sessions offering a wide range of local flaps options for coverage of the upper extremity from fingertip to shoulder. All practical sessions will be performed on fresh frozen cadavers with two participants per extremity. The Local Flap Esser Masterclass will be organized every 3 years.

Moscow is a city that combines the past and the present; where old buildings live together with high-tech business quarters. Moscow is home to more than 500 museums, 3 UNESCO World Heritage sites, and a number of world architectural records. Moscow’s rich architecture can also be seen underground: the central metro stations—real “palaces of the people” with mosaics, paintings, stucco, and dazzling illumination. Moscow is a metropolis that has everything: the best restaurants, fashionable nightclubs, skyscrapers, dizzying views, and even peaceful old courtyards where time has stood still for more than a century.
