Anchoring each Clinical Congress is an outstanding academic and scientific education program, and this year’s conference offered nearly 100 expert-led Panel Sessions to share the latest in surgical education. These Panel Sessions remain available online through the Clinical Congress 2023 on-demand platform, which is open to all in-person and virtual attendees, as well as new registrants. Check out some of these popular sessions from Clinical Congress 2023.
This popular annual session provides brief presentations by experts in general surgery who discuss a specific topic in a rapid-fire format. ACS Immediate Past-President E. Christopher Ellison, MD, FACS, and Regent Kenneth W. Sharp, MD, FACS, moderated the wide-ranging session, which included presentations on:
This inaugural Pro/Con debate covers two common topics faced by general surgeons: percutaneous cholecystostomy versus cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis and open versus minimally invasive surgery repair for inguinal hernia. Experts in their respective techniques held a spirited discussion that provided informed perspective based on personal experience and a review on current literature.
There is little to no formal training provided to surgeons on artificial intelligence-driven, clinically actionable decision support tools to improve surgical outcomes. And yet, despite this, usage is growing quickly as health systems invest in predictive analytics to lower the cost of care. This well-attended session describes the currently available tools for predicting postoperative outcomes, the literature to support their use in patient care and quality initiatives, their strengths and weaknesses in application, effective strategies for implementation, and a look at potential future tools in this arena.
