Oncologic Biopsy Techniques
Approved for 1 CE Credit Hour

Tumor biopsy is the foundation of sound therapeutic decision making in oncologic surgery. Although there are multiple ways to obtain a biopsy from any given tumor, each procedure requires careful planning to ensure that definitive therapy is not compromised. Knowledge of the principles and techniques of biopsy is imperative to ensure an accurate diagnosis with minimal morbidity. During this session, we will review the principles of biopsy and commonly used techniques and where these procedures are most applicable.

Skin Flaps: Grafting Techniques
Approved for 1 CE Credit Hour

Skin grafting is the transplanting of skin to another location on the body. Most commonly, it is used for reconstruction after the surgical removal of cutaneous malignancies; however, skin grafts are also used to cover chronic non-healing cutaneous wounds and to replace tissue lost to trauma. During this session, we will review skin grafting to give attendees a more thorough understanding of the indications, techniques and complications related to the procedure(s).
