Be Highlighted Live with your Case and Our Faculty

Every quarter, 3 societies will be selected to participate in our Case Discussion Program. Here are the three societies that have been chosen for Q1 (January-March 2020):

  • Chinese Young Surgeon Society
  • La Asociación Mexicana de Cirugía General
  • South African Hernia Society

Each society will host their own local Case Discussion Program, collect videos from surgeons in their country and select the top video to submit to Hernia U. All of this will be based off of the same criteria:

  1. Video must be less than 10 minutes
  2. Cannot use barbed sutures
  3. Must use BD products
  4. Must provide documentation on the case to include Case Title and Case Description.
  5. Optionally, the submission can include CT scans or pictures

The videos will be rated based off:

  • Quality of the documentation
  • Quality of the video
  • Teaching goals
  • Innovate solution when solving the case
  • Final message

Each society will hold their competition by end of February and submit their winning video by February 28th.  Each winning video from each society will go into our Video Library as their award.

March 25th our Hernia U faculty will select the top video from the 3 videos submitted from the societies, present it on www.HerniaU.com and the winner will be featured on the IHC Facebook page as a standout case.
