Lessons Learned From Intraoperative Complications Returns as 2016 Abstract Submission Category

February 19, 2016 | By More

The Southern Thoracic Surgical Association is currently accepting abstracts for its 63rd Annual Meeting, November 9-12, 2016 in Naples, FL. Members and non-members alike are invited to submit their work by the April 4, 2016 deadline.

Again this year STSA will accept oral and video abstracts in the category Lessons Learned From Intraoperative Complications. This submission category was first introduced last year, and the November 2015 STSA 62nd Annual Meeting featured an education session titled Recognition & Management of Cardiothoracic Surgical Misadventures to showcase Lessons Learned abstracts.

62nd Annual Meeting evaluation data demonstrated that the Recognition & Management of Cardiothoracic Surgical Misadventures session was the most highly-rated scientific session of the meeting. Attendee comments included “I loved this session… it should always be a part of the program,” and “This was one of the most interesting sessions of the meeting.”

The 2016 STSA Program Committee is excited to offer the Lessons Learned From Intraoperative Complications abstract submission category again in 2016 to continue STSA’s tradition of providing premier educational programming that prepares attendees to confront complex situations in the OR.

To submit a Lessons Learned From Intraoperative Complications abstract, access the submission site and designate your abstract(s) for this category in Step 3. Other 2016 abstract submission categories include adult cardiac, general thoracic, congenital, and transplant surgery as well as history, surgical education, patient safety, and simulation and team-based learning.
