Clinical practice abstracts will present clinical data that broadens understanding about a condition or procedure. Clinical

practice abstracts will tend to:

o Be clinical

o Report a case series

o Use descriptive statistics, not necessarily have p values

Scientific and Clinical practice papers chosen for Oral Presentation will be presented as 5 minutes presentation and 5

minutes discussion. These presentations must also be accompanied by posters that will be mounted in the Exhibition

area. All oral presenters will be requested to forward an electronic copy of their PowerPoint presentation to the AV

awarded an SCTS Poster presentation prize.
