Two-Component Skin Biopsy Workshop
The 2018 Skin Biopsy Workshop will be two hours long and have two separate competing components.
First Component - Skin Biopsy Workshop
Attendees will be taught the proper biopsy techniques (shave, saucerization, punch, excision) based on the type of lesion, including breadth and depth and suspected pathology, and anatomic location. Suggestions will be given regarding the types of anesthesia to be used and hints on less painful administration. A fresh pig foot will be available to each workshop participant for a one hour hands-on practice in performing such biopsies. Workshop faculty will be circulating in the audience as advisors to address individual questions that arise regarding performance of the various types of skin biopsy. Suture will be provided, as well as blades for shave/saucerization, punches, scalpels, and all surgical instruments.
Second Component - When and Where to Biopsy the Skin and How to Interpret the Results
Photographically-illustrated clinical cases will be presented in which key issues concerning skin biopsy can be demonstrated, such as selection of biopsy site, biopsy type, part of lesion to be biopsied, and how to interpret the results.
