Thank you for visiting the official AHPBA website. My name is Will Chapman, current President of the AHPBA, and it is my pleasure to welcome you to the organization. We represent surgical and non-surgical specialists throughout North, Central, and South America who care for patients with disorders of the liver, pancreas, and biliary tract.
Our mission is to encourage the exchange of clinical and scientific knowledge among surgeons, hepatologists, gastroenterologists, and members of related disciplines.

Now accepting “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 (e.g., the significance of margins in pancreatectomy for adenocarcinoma) or novel data and techniques (e.g., your experience with using ALPPS in liver resection). Please submit an interesting case using less than 500 words to summarize the key elements of the patient presentation including pertinent history, labs, and imaging (ideally 3-4 high quality, de-identified images). Provide a short literature review including 3-5 references that are relevant to the case. You can also pose some questions to the audience to foster discussion. We look forward to your submission! To submit a case, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
