7:00 - 8:30 a.m.
All attendees in the upcoming IPR in Montreal are encouraged to submit interesting cases or cases involving complications to the Interventional Workshop being held on Saturday morning.
Interesting cases may include any patient presentation that poses a difficult diagnostic problem or a particular management or procedural challenge relating to the use of interventional approaches and techniques. Interesting cases do not have to have achieved resolution in order to be presented - cases still under review or for which no known solution has yet been found are often stimulating subjects for discussion.
Reviewing IR cases with complications is important to fostering a culture of safety in the pediatric interventional community and to the practice of medicine. Complications include those cases with bad outcomes as well as "close-calls". Learning from these cases is essential for a safe medical environment. Each case presentation should emphasize what happened, why it happened, and prevention. Case discussions may help prompt the development of a system for standardization of pediatric interventional protocols, procedures, and checklists which will increase patient safety over time.
Please submit cases via email to SPR@acr.org if possible, limiting each e-mail file to no more than 2 MB due to firewall restrictions. Files must be received no later than May 5 to be reviewed for presentation. If you have a file larger than 2 MB, please send a description to the same address for alternative submission instructions. For each case, please include pertinent, non-patient-specific information (age, sex, weight, brief history & presentation, diagnostic or clinical question/request) with images on PowerPoint slides. Images should each be 5 inches wide with a resolution of 100 dpi in a JPEG or TIFF format and have a brief legend. In order to provide broad access, presenters will be limited to one case each. Cases received before the meeting will have priority for presentation. Cases brought directly to the meeting should be given to the meeting registration staff in advance of the workshop on either a CD-ROM or jump-drive. Cases brought to the meeting will be presented only if time allows.
Specific questions may be addressed to the workshop faculty: Kevin Baskin, MD - Interesting Cases - at BASKIN@email.chop.edu and Mary Beth Moore, MD - Complications - at firstname.lastname@example.org.
