Spectacular Surgical Case Reviews

RAS-ACS members participate in annual Clinical Congress event

What would you do if you were presented with a multimodal thromboembolectomies in a patient with diffuse clot burden?

Perhaps that’s the question that a panel member will ask one of the four Spectacular Case presenters at this year’s Clinical Congress. Four select members of the RAS-ACS present cases of interest to a panel of seasoned surgical experts. As the RAS-ACS members review the case, panelists ask questions of their thought process and technique, similar to a morbidity and mortality conference. This educational conference is just one of many that residents and associate fellows can expect at Clinical Congress 2015. Become a member and submit your own spectacular case! (Submissions are due May 1, 2015.) For more information about Spectacular Cases, please inquire at spectacularcases@facs.org.
