    5. This is a case-based session focusing on what we like best ... real cases with challenges that make the experts sweat. This may result in a great save or a terrible complication but these are often the cases from which we learn the most. In this amphitheater setting, audience participation is encouraged and step-by-step case management is featured and discussed.
