The first extraoral application of osseointegrated titanium implants in craniofacial defects was more than three decades ago. This event marked a major improvement in the treatment of craniofacial defects by bone-anchored craniofacial prostheses („epistheses“). Since then, numerous efforts have been made to improve the applicability and outcome in unfavorable anatomical situations. One result of this evolutionary process was the development of the Epiplating System by Medicon eG in collaboration with Prof. P. Federspil, Ph. It consists essentially of titanium miniplates adapted to the needs of anaplastology. In the course of more than 15 years, the epiplating system has proven to be very versatile and allows the insertion of implants into (almost) all defects.
The aim of this course is to introduce to the Colombian market all the advantages of the Epiplating System – a star product in itself.
Problem cases such as hemifacial microsomia (for example, when the auricle is affected) or due to trauma can be treated with the Epiplating System in a very satisfactory way for the patient.
We believe that the product aspects and its benefits are best communicated in an interactive workshop concept, where participants not only learn product information, but can also apply the product themselves and get to know it in the best possible way. Experts on the product have been recruited to share their expertise during the course, with surgeons, surgical assistants as well as anaplastologists.
We would be very happy to welcome you to this course in Colombia!
