Call for Challenging Clinical Cases

ESC WG on Thrombosis Young Researchers – Call for Challenging Clinical Cases

The ESC Working Group on Thrombosis Young Researchers are pleased to be hosting a Challenging Clinical Cases session at this year’s EuroThrombosis & EuroVessels meeting in Lisbon on Friday 21st October 2022 at 0800 local time. This is a great opportunity to share and discuss your clinical experiences with like-minded colleagues, and gain valuable experience of presenting in a prominent and well-respected setting. There will be a prize for the best presented case.

Do you have a challenging case involving diagnosis, treatment or prevention of thrombosis to share? Perhaps an unusual presentation, a management dilemma or innovative approach to a complex case?

We are now inviting submissions for the session and will select the best entrants to present their cases in person at the meeting in Lisbon. Each case will be followed by a constructive panel discussion to identify learning points for all. We hope you can join us for what promises to be a highly enlightening event, whether it be as a presenter or a member of the audience.
