Case of the Month Submissions
We are extending invitations for case submissions for our "case of the month" on the AHPBA website. The cases are meant to foster discussion and collaboration among members - the cases can be straightforward clinical scenarios that address fundamental topics in HPB and transplant surgery or novel data and techniques. Cases should use less than 500 words to summarize the key elements of the patient presentation including pertinent history, labs, and imaging. Provide a short literature review including 3-5 relevant references. You can also pose some questions to the audience to foster discussion. To submit a case, please email email@example.com.
