For dozens of years microsurgical techniques have been successfully applied in various procedural areas mainly in ophthalmology, laryngology, female infertility treatment, urology, plastic surgery and reconstruction as well as hand surgery. Courses enabling acquisition of basic qualifications within the microsurgical techniques area are the starting point for such activity, there is however an urgent need for further training as it goes without saying that without adequate training one may quickly forget all the experience gained during such trainings. Our department have been using foetal placenta obtained from maternity ward (following a written consent from a parturient) to carry out microsurgical trainings for 13 months now.
