The Dr.UGraft ™ Intuitive FUE system was presented at the ISHRS FUE Cadaver Hands-On and Live Surgery Workshop in Istanbul, offering attendees an opportunity to actually use the device while practicing new techniques for harvesting hair transplant donor grafts. The three-day training conference was held at the Acibadem University and took place from April 19-21.
Tayfun Oganozlu MD, FISHRS and Kayihan Sahinoglu MD, FISHRS served as the co-chairs and worked alongside with fellow ISHRS faculty member, Ekrem Civas MD, FISHRS to organize this event.
Dr.UGraft ™ Helps Hair Transplant Surgeons Perform More Effortless Donor Extractions
The doctors who attended this training were given the chance to experience the self-navigating functionality of the Dr.UGraft ™ intelligent punch as they extracted hair follicle grafts. Unlike standard basic FUE devices, the engineering involved eliminates the need to rely on the visible hair shaft as a cue for locating the follicular unit. Even when the punch is accidentally misaligned, it is still possible to extract high quality, intact grafts with extremely minimal transection rates.
As a rather special surprise, this particular workshop in Istanbul debuted an exciting focal highlight for the attendees through the use of fixated cadavers, resulting from the research and work of Dr.Sahinoglu. He is the developer of a new and improved preservation method which helps the cadavers retain many of the skin characteristics observed in live patients.
While the use of fresh, frozen cadavers has been conventionally used in live training courses, one of the main drawbacks is that it significantly alters how the skin tissue behaves. And this can contribute to higher instances of transected grafts.
At this event, attendees were able to gain greater confidence in their extraction skills by learning a more effortless approach to donor extractions through the use of the Dr.UGraft ™ punch system. And the availability of fixated cadavers enabled them to receive accurate feedback about their performance through realistic transection rates.
