Gluteal Fat Grafting with Ultrasound Fri, Oct 28 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. EDT

In this didactic and hands-on course, participants will learn about the use of real time intraoperative high-resolution ultrasound in gluteal fat grafting procedures with an emphasis on demonstrating key techniques in cannula visualization, ensuring subcutaneous cannula position, and targeted fat grafting techniques. Following the lecture component, participants will engage in a hands-on ultrasound lab where they will use a variety of ultrasound systems on a gluteal tissue model to practice intraoperative ultrasound skills. Finally, participants may opt to test these skills and earn a certificate of completion in ultrasound guided gluteal fat grafting.

At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Choose optimal ultrasound settings and create a video recording of ultrasound guided fat grafting
  2. Identify key gluteal anatomic landmarks, analyze, and measure the gluteal subcutaneous spaces
  3. Practice ultrasound probe techniques to readily identify the injection cannula in all spaces
  4. Demonstrate consistent subcutaneous cannula position during injection
  5. Differentiate between a subcutaneous and an intramuscular cannula position
  6. Reposition from a dangerous muscular position to a safe subcutaneous position prior to injection
  7. Demonstrate consistent subcutaneous cannula position during injection
  8. Distinguish the different subcutaneous gluteal spaces
  9. Inject into a targeted subcutaneous space
