This course has been successfully conducted for the past six years and has attracted many dentists from all over the world. It is approved by the Federal Board of Dentists in Germany (“Bundeszahnärztekammer”). Participation will be honored with a certificate of the Faculty of Medicine of Ulm University.

Aim & Objective: The advances in the field of dental materials have changed the traditional concepts of restorative dentistry and resulted in the development of innovative preparation and filling techniques. The aim of this combined lecture and hands-on course is to acquaint course members with the innovative concepts of bonded tooth-colored posterior and esthetic anterior restorations. Based on current scientific information, participants will be enabled to make proper decisions with regard to case and material selection, cavity preparation and handling of materials. Special focus will be directed to step-by-step instructions and intensive hands-on training in combination with considerate and friendly over-the-shoulder mentoring. Participants will receive a detailed printed manual summarizing the course contents including color-pictured step-by-step instructions. In addition, each participant will obtain a CD containing all course lectures.

Course Contents: Fundamentals Rationale for the use of adhesive tooth-colored restorations Current status of tooth-colored restorative materials Light-curing technology Current status of enamel and dentin bonding Pulpal considerations and pulp protection in adhesive restorations Posterior Direct Resin Composite Restorations Replacement of restorations Class I and II Special matrix and layering techniques for adequate proximal contour and contacts Early caries diagnosis and minimal invasive treatment concepts Anterior Aesthetic Restorations Fundamentals of dental aesthetics Materials and instruments Direct composite veneering Class IV restorations Restoration of cervical defects Closure of diastema and black triangles Ceramic veneers Posterior Indirect Restorations Direct and indirect composite inlays/onlays Ceramic inlays/onlays Ceramic and composite bonding Cavity preparation Luting procedures step-by-step.

Course Title Cryopreservation of Mammalian Ovarian Tissue as well as Spermatozoa, Oocytes, Embryos by Conventional Freezing and Vitrification for Oncology and Reproductology
Institution Ulm: University of Ulm
Country Germany
Type Certificate / Short Course (up to 3 months)
Topics Healthcare areas: Reproductive Health

Degree, Credits EACCME certificate
Location Science Conference Center “Schloss Reisensburg” and Clinic for Cardiac Surgery, Ulm University Hospital, Germany
Objectives/
Content
This course will have three major parts:
The first part will contain basic lectures regarding the principles and scientific approaches to the cryobiology of oocytes, embryos as well as the use in reproductive and veterinary medicine. The major focus will be on the hands-on session to be conducted in the second part of the course. The participants will learn directly the tricks and possibilities for cryopreservation and thawing of biological material as well as the kits that are available for vitrification and thawing, which can be used for any stage of human pre-implantation cells. The third part of the course will allow intensive discussions regarding the methods used and the means and ways of assessing their viability. Important issues in this session are the aseptic vitrification of mammalian oocytes and embryos and the cryoprotectant-free vitrification of human ICSI spermatozoa.

Course Contents Session I: Informatory lectures • Oncological treatment in young patients and protection of reproductive function • First German experience of the transplantation of cryopreserved human ovarian tissue • Cryoprotectant-free vitrification of human spermatozoa: theory and practical application • Cryobiology as field of knowledge and application in reproductive medicine and oncology • Aseptic application of vitrification of human oocytes and embryos
Session II
: Demonstration and hands-on manipulations • Conventional freezing of human ovarian tissue • Long-term transport of ovarian tissue • Preparation of strips of ovarian tissue: release of cortex from parenchyma • Saturation of tissue by cryoprotectants using new special freezing medium for ovarian tissue OvarStore • Freezing of strips in 2 ml Cryo-Vials and 1 ml straws using Erlangen-freezing system and different freezing constructions (Cryologic, IceCube, BioCool, Planer) • Very quick thawing of ovarian tissue in boiling water and removal of cryoprotectants • In vitro culture of ovarian tissue • Evaluation of quality of ovarian tissue: quality of follicles as central object of this evaluation • Vitrification of human ovarian tissue • Preparation of vitrification solution and saturation by permeable cryoprotectants • Quick cooling of ovarian tissue by direct dropping into liquid nitrogen • Quick warming of ovarian tissue by direct dropping into liquid nitrogen
Session III:
Hands-on and extensive discussion • Aseptic vitrification of human oocytes and embryos • Cryoprotectant-free vitrification of human ICSI spermatozoa • Round table with hands-on repeated manipulations of all methodologies.
