Abstract

Microsurgery represents an important branch in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. It involves fine skills which doctors need to repair nerves, vessels and thus being able to perform replantation and transplantation of different types of tissue. After traumatic injuries, a plastic surgeon is capable of either coverage of the exposed noble tissue or can perform the replantation of the amputated limb using microsurgery.


This field can be very challenging at the beginning, but very rewarding in the end.  The utility microsurgery is quite vast; however, the skills to perform such surgery require a lot of training beforehand. Before doing any replantation or other tissue transplant in humans, it would be recommended that a surgeon should have a basic microsurgical course completed and afterwards several hours of practice in front of the microscope. Last but not least, one should also test the skills acquired in vivo, in order to improve and perform the correct manoeuvres from the beginning.


In order to do this, a plastic surgery trainee must therefore have a dedicated laboratory where he/she can practice this art. This place should be quiet, equipped with microscopes and microsurgery instruments and authorized to perform experiments on live animals.
