Excellence in Microsurgical Techniques Training


We warmly invite you to our our Microsurgical Techniques and Pressure-Volume surgery training course, our first in-person event since the pandemic began. 

We are  confident that you will master the surgeries required for reliable blood pressure and left ventricular pressure (BP and LVP) surgery. If that if this is not the case, you will be able to attend your next RRSSC course for free. This is part of the RRSSC "no cure, no pay" philosophy. More refund information is available at the bottom of this web page.

Learning Outcomes

  • Train in the specialised surgical technniques to catheterise different vessels and monitor the wellbeing of subjects.
  • Learn how to use LabChart to its maximum potential for your research.
  • Experience a  wide range of specialised LabChart analysis features.
  • Undertake the surgeries required for reliable BP and LVP/PV surgery
  • Combine practical hands-on training  in surgical procedures with lectures (ratio 70:30) and advanced techniques for recording an analysing your data.

This course has been designed for scientists who are:

  • New to surgery and pressure-volume recording techniques.
  • Would like to refine their surgical techniques and need help in the recording and analysis of their blood pressure/ PV or other physiological data. 

Professor René Remie fluently speaks 4 languages: Dutch, German, English and French; any one-to-one instruction can take place in your chosen/native language. 

Please note, owing to COVID19 we have had to reduce total attendee number to 5, so places are very limited. We therefore encourage you to book your place early if you are interested.
