The simple concept behind the "I Blew It" & "Brain Scratchers" sessions at SCAI 2013's Congenital Heart Disease Symposium is that there is no better teaching method than coming together as a community and sharing our unusual and challenging cases.
The "I Blew It" Sessions will be returning for the 14th year to educate with all the ways interventional cases can go awry and with the creative ways that our colleagues manage these complications. More importantly, the session addresses how to avoid such events in the future.
The "Brain Scratchers" Session challenges attendees to solve hemodynamic, angiographic or interventional mysteries and to provide solutions for less than routine cases in the congenital catheterization laboratory.
If you have a case that might be a good learning tool for either session, please contact Thomas Fagan, MD, FSCAI, at Thomas.Fagan@childrenscolorado.org. The presentation should last no more than a total of 10 minutes including a dialogue with participants and moderators in how to deal with the complication. The presentation should conclude with some teaching points
