EuroAmerican Multispecialty Summit 2015 Call for Videos

Deadline: December 19, 2014

On Thursday, February 12, 2015, the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons (SLS) will be presenting a Video Session: SURGICAL SURPRISES, ACCIDENTS & COMPLICATIONS: To Err is Human, To Correct is Master Surgeon – Now How the ##!!** Do I Get Out of This?

​This session will take place during the EuroAmerican MultiSpecialty Summit VII to be held in Orlando, Florida, USA,February 11-14, 2015. Submit your video for a chance to be included in this popular interactive session!​

The Surgical Surprises session aims to highlight unexpected events occurring during surgery, the decision process of how to remedy the accident/occurrence, and the video demonstration of the event and its correction. The strength of this program is the concurrent critique/discussion by expert surgeons, urologists and gynecologists on the panel, with the presenter’s interaction. This is NOT a forum to show how you perform a particular procedure, neither is this a lecture by the presenter; those types of submissions will be rejected. Events of interest to the multispecialty audience will be prioritized.

Please arrange your video and submission notes by:

1. Brief history and indication for surgery
2. Surgery and surprise event
3. Remedy of the accident/surprise
4. Follow-up if appropriate (e.g. IVP)

The total video length should be between 2-5 minutes. There should be no narration or music. The moderator will decide the stop points on the video and lead the discussion.

To submit a video that has been formatted as described above, please use the steps outlined below:

Step 1: Upload Video

  • Visit
  • Sign in with Username: SLS VideoUpload; Password: UploadVideo13
  • Videos should be between 2-5 minutes and under 2GB

Step 2: Complete this form and be sure to include the link to the video you uploaded.

All persons whose videos are accepted for inclusion must be paid registrants and must be present at the session. It is important that those whose videos are presented during the session are present in order to clarify issues and answer questions. Please keep in mind that video presentation will be at the discretion of the panel, Director, and Co-Director. There may not be an opportunity to show all videos since this will be an interactive session and discussion and participation from the audience is unpredictable. Those submitting videos must be present at the session in order for it to be shown.
