Overview
The ESAVS Soft Tissue Surgery courses are dedicated to veterinarians in practice or in the academic field who are willing to deepen their knowledge in soft tissue surgery. The comprehensive study program consists currently of 4 one-week modules. Each course is composed of a mix of theory and practice on models and cadavers. Much time is dedicated to interactive and practical training under the supervision of course masters and instructors, who are all internationally recognized European or American specialists.

After attending the whole program, participants shall have acquired sufficient knowledge not only to face most of the current clinical situations but also to further progress by themselves and then recognize the cases that need to be referred to specialists.

STS I (Soft Tissue Surgery I) is mandatory before continuing on to the next courses. STS II, III and IV can be taken in any order. It is recommended to take STS V only after completion of the previous courses.

Soft Tissue Surgery II
This module focuses on two important topics of soft tissue surgery: On one hand the skin reconstruction techniques, and on the other one surgery of the perineal and anal region.

Learning Outcomes:
At the end of the course, participants 1) shall possess the current knowledge about principles of wound care; 2) master most of the skin reconstruction techniques; 3) have a sound anatomical knowledge of perineal and perianal region; 4) master surgical techniques as anal sac removal, perineal hernia repair and rectal surgery.
