Send Us Your Vexing Cases
No matter how evidence-based we strive to be in our decision making, we all know that the patient in front of us is never exactly like those enrolled in large clinical trials. Thus at CardioExchange, we have highlighted cases where the application of evidence-based medicine and treatment guidelines is not straight-forward. And often, to our delight and to everyone’s benefit, you’ve responded with your views and your questions on how these patients should be treated.
Now, we want to build on that community by turning the tables: You show us the cases, ask the questions, and tell us what happened in the end. Submit a vexing case to us by e-mailing us here. If your case is selected to be presented and discussed, we’ll edit the content for clarity and HIPPA compliance, and you’ll get a great opportunity to interact with your colleagues.
We hope that these cases will engender exciting and even controversial conversations that will allow us all to learn from each other and ultimately improve the care of our patients.
