Navigating Superficial Anatomy of the Face

Wednesday, February 3, 2016 / 7:00-8:00 pm Central Time

The webinar covers facial anatomy relevant to the dermatologic surgeon, highlighting anatomical danger and safe zones through an interactive live lecture supplemented by video footage of dissections of unembalmed cadaveric specimens.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify the four principal fascial planes of the face;
  2. Recall how the muscles of facial expression are arranged and attach to the dermis;
  3. Explain how the SMAS is continuous with platysma, superficial parotid fascia, galea and superficial temporal fascia;
  4. Review the facial nerve as a principal motor supplier of the mimetic muscles and follow its course in innervating muscles from their deep surfaces;
  5. Review the trigeminal nerve branches as they exit supra-orbital, infra-orbital and mental foramina on a trajectory toward the skin where they lie within the sub-cutaneous fibro-adipose layer;
  6. Review course and relations of facial and superficial temporal arteries as the run along a superficial course cross palpable bony boundaries;
  7. Identify danger zones and safe zones in the face.

CME: 1.00 Credit Hour

SPEAKER: Nirusha Lachman, PhD, is associate professor in the Department of Anatomy, College of Medicine with joint appointment in the Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic Surgery at Mayo Clinic. Her primary focus lies in integrating anatomy education for everyday practice, and she is one of few clinical anatomists in the world who works collaboratively on a daily basis with clinicians in a practice-based setting. In her 20-year career as a clinical anatomist, Dr. Lachman has contributed at least 57 scientific publications in peer reviewed journals, 16 book chapters and numerous abstract publications and national and international presentations.

Accreditation Statement
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the sponsorship of the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS). The ACMS is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation Statement
The ACMS designates this internet live activity for a maximum of 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest
To comply with the ACCME Standards of Commercial Support on the need for disclosure and monitoring of proprietary and financial interests that may affect the scientific integrity and balance of content delivered in continuing medical education activities under our auspices. The ACMS requires that all CME certified activities be developed free from the control of a commercial interest and be balanced, objective, and scientifically rigorous. Anyone with the ability to affect the content of an educational activity must disclose relevant financial relationships with commercial interests producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients.

Disclosure of Discussion of Non-FDA Approved Uses for Pharmaceutical Products and/or Medical Devices
The ACMS requires that all faculty presenters identify and disclose any off-label uses for pharmaceutical and medical device products. The ACMS recommends that each physician fully review all the available data on new products or procedures prior to instituting them with patients.

Interest Disclosures
As an organization accredited by the ACCME to sponsor continuing medical education activities, the ACMS is required to disclose any real or apparent conflicts of interest (COI) that any speakers may have related to the content of their presentations. The ACMS requires that all individuals (including spouse/domestic partner) in a position to control/influence content in a program designated for AMA Physician’s Recognition Award Category 1 credits™ disclose any financial interest/arrangement or affiliation with an ACCME-defined commercial organization that may impact on his/her presentation (i.e. grants, research support, honoraria, member of speakers’ bureau, consultant, major stock shareholder, etc.). In addition, the faculty member must disclose when an unlabeled use of a commercial product or an investigational use not yet approved for any purpose is discussed during the educational activity.

No Interests to Disclose:
Jeremy S. Bordeaux, MD, MPH, FACMS*
Jerry D. Brewer, MD, FACMS*
Mariah R. Brown, MD, FACMS*
Nirusha Lachman, PhD
Fiona M. Zwald, MD, MRCPI, FACMS*

Relevant Conflicts of Interest to Disclose**:
John G. Albertini, MD, FACMS*                                 Research/Grant Support - Genentech

*Indicates CME & Education Committee Members
**Having a financial relationship with an ACCME-defined commercial organization, or discussing an unlabeled use of a commercial product, may not prevent a faculty member from participating in the planning process. However, the existence of a relevant financial relationship must be disclosed, so that any relevant conflict of interest may be resolved prior to that individual’s participation in the CME activity.

The views expressed and the techniques presented by the speaker of the ACMS-sponsored educational activity are not necessarily shared or endorsed by the organizations. Anyone with the ability to affect the content of an educational activity must disclose relevant financial relationships with commercial interests producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients, as well as any unapproved or off-label uses of medical devices or pharmaceutical agents that they discuss, describe, or demonstrate during their presentations. Participants should use their independent judgment in applying the information discussed in this webinar in the treatment of patients.
