It’s time for the April International General Surgery Journal Club! We have another great session planned. Thanks to JAMA Surgery, the article “The Effectiveness of Prophylactic Inferior Vena Cava Filters in Trauma Patients: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis” is now available open access for the entire month. Discussion starts April 1 (no fooling) and runs through April 2nd.
Don’t worry if you aren’t a trauma surgeon, the journal club will be sure to include a lot of great discussion on VTE prophylaxis and the role of pharmacologic therapy vs. filters. We will have first author Elliott Haut MD (@elliotthaut) as discussant with expert moderation from Christian Jones MD (@jonessurgery). Please remember to use the hashtag #IGSJC in all of your posts, and search for that hashtag to follow all the action.
