State of the art in surgical training or basic research of Orthopedics using cadaver specimen in Clinical Anatomy Education and Research Center of Tokushima University Hospital
cadaver surgical training
full-endoscopic lumbar discectomy
In this paper, we would like to introduce about our surgical training program and basic research in the Orthopedic field using fresh frozen cadaver in Clinical Anatomy Laboratory, Tokushima University Hospital. One of our representative surgical training programs is FED course（full-endoscopic lumbar discectomy course）. FED is one of the newest minimally invasive surgeries for lumbar disc herniation, which can be performed with８mm of skin incision under local anesthesia. There are some knacks and pitfalls in the surgical technique to achieve safe and favorable clinical outcomes. Fresh frozen cadaver is suitable condition for FED course because the color or elastic of the soft tissue is similar to real patient and these conditions are quite important for endoscopic surgical training. We are also working on the biomechanical research of the knee and hip joints and radiation exposure during various Orthopedic surgeries using cadaver specimens. Clinical Anatomy Laboratory is essential for our department to brush up or develop novel surgical techniques and encourage biomechanical research to discover new insights in the Orthopedic field.
