Call for Videos

STS is seeking targeted, high-quality video content (that hasn't been previously published) for inclusion consideration in the STS Cardiothoracic Surgery E-Book. Videos that feature exemplary surgical techniques or innovative educational approaches could become part of the E-Book video library. STS welcomes video submissions that demonstrate a variety of pediatric and congenital cardiac, adult cardiac, and general thoracic procedures. Submitters whose videos are accepted will receive peer-reviewed publication credit and complimentary access to the respective E-Book volume.

Surgical videos will be a valued contribution and help ensure that the STS E-Book remains the most comprehensive and up-to-date resource for cardiothoracic surgery professionals.
