A microsurgery laboratory was set up and two different courses were started, aiming separately at biomedical researchers and surgeons. The course for biomedical researchers teaches basic microsurgical skills such as vessel isolation, cannulation, and arterial microvascular suture under magnification. The more advanced course for surgeons focuses on various techniques of microvascular and nerve anastomosis. Both courses use a combination of theory and practice, with emphasis on the practical part, the course for surgeons also includes clinically relevant information.

Topics that are covered:
Ergonomy, adjustment of operative microscope , anatomy (mouse and rat), anaesthesia, pre
- intra - and postoperative care, aseptic technique, surgical instruments,
Tissue handling and vascular dissection techniques, suturing techniques, catheters and
catheterisation (vena cava, v. jugularis, carotid artery), exposure of vagus nerve, sampling
and monitoring basic techniques for end-to-end anastomosis. We use a combination of non-
living simulation models and anaesthetized rats and mice for the practical training
