We invite you to submit a difficult or challenging cardiac case encountered during your career for open discussion at the NeoHeart 2018 in Fort Worth, TX. These cases could be from any situation or unit in the hospital requiring successful multidisciplinary collaboration, lateral thinking and/or innovation. Cases could include any diagnostic dilemma, whether they were challenging emotionally, physiologically, or logistically. Cases that make you think back and say, “could we have done something more”, “why did it turn out that way” or possibly that one case that keeps you up at night for its intense nature.

Cases would be presented in a supportive and positive environment with an emphasis on open discussion, debate and learning. These forums have been highly successful and very well received at recent conferences.

Please read the following instructions carefully. Though they are simple and self explanatory, case submissions will not be accepted if instructions are not followed appropriately.

  1. Abstracts must be submitted in English appropriate for publication.
  2. Title of the clinical case should be in sentence case and limited to 10 words.
  3. Structure for the case submission will be: Introduction; Case report description; Discussion and Implications to clinical practice.
  4. Up to three images relevant to the case may be submitted.
  5.  All patient information must be withheld and anonymous.
  6. The presenting author of the case MUST be a registered participant.
  7. All co-authors should be aware of the case presentation’s content before submission.
  8. An award for the best case will be presented during the conference.
  9. There is no limit to the number of cases an author may submit but multiple copies of the same abstract is not permitted.
  10. The corresponding author will be notified of the decision by first week of February 2018 by e-mail.
  11. Instructions concerning the presentation of accepted clinical cases will be e-mailed thereafter.
