A Focused Overview of Craniofacial Surgery: Preparation for the FRCS Exit Exam
13th May 2021
1900 - 2015 hours (UK time)
Online Via Zoom
Many craniofacial abnormalities (CFA) result from abnormal development of the 1st and 2nd visceral arches, which form the facial bones and ears during the second month of gestation. The aetiological factors include a number of genetic syndromes, as well as prenatal environmental factors. CFAs can impact swallowing, breathing, hearing, vision and speech; in some neonates, they can result in life-threatening airway compromise. The assessment and management of CFAs is tested in the FRCS Exit Exam. This talk by Mr Jagajeevan Jagadeesan, who is an experienced Consultant Plastic and Craniofacial Surgeon at the University Hospitals of Birmingham, will cover the classification of craniofacial anomalies, craniosynotosis, common craniofacial syndromes, the management, and surgical techniques for correction. It will provide a structured algorithm to prepare for the FRCS Exit Exam.
