Surgical Technique Videos


The AAHKS Annual Meeting will showcase surgical technique videos on flat-screen monitor stations in the Rotunda of the Anatole hotel.

The deadline to upload videos is October 13, 2017.

Instructions for authors

Video Length: No greater than 10 minutes in length.

Title: Programs should have a title frame or slate indicating the subject of the program.

Authors: Names of all authors must appear on at the beginning of the program; these names must match those on the abstract.Video Rotunda

Disclosures: Disclosures need to appear after the title frame for all authors and co-authors.

Commercial Support: Attribution for commercial support must be in the form of a video credit rather than advertising. This credit must appear at the beginning of the program.

Off-Label Use: The “off-label” use of any pharmaceuticals and/or medical devices must be specifically disclosed in the program (i.e. that the FDA has not approved labeling the device or pharmaceutical for the described purpose).

Proprietary/Trade Names: Generic product names must be used rather than proprietary or trade names.

Copyright Information: Permission for all copyrighted material (drawings, illustrations, video footage) must be obtained with attribution of permissions included in the closing credits.

Narration: The narration must be clear and easy to understand.

Visualization: The video must show well what it intends to show – most often from the surgeon’s point of view. Wide shots should show context, close-ups should show detail. The surgical field should be well lit.

Indications/Contraindications: The program describes the indications and contraindications for the technique and the patient case illustrated.

Preoperative and Postoperative Images: Preoperative and postoperative images are very important to illustrate the patient’s condition before and after treatment and to confirm the results achieved.

Outcomes: The program must present outcomes from the author’s series, which may be augmented with outcomes from published, peer reviewed literature.

Universal Precautions: Universal precautions must be used in the operating room. All on-camera personnel in the operating room must be shown with personal protective equipment, most noticeably protective eyewear.

Patient Privacy: Identifying information, including patients’ names, initials, or hospital numbers, must not appear. This typically happens in preoperative and postoperative radiographs and MRIs.

Patient Consent: Written consent must be obtained from each person appearing in the work.
