June 02, 2020 1:30 PM | Jim Ireland (Administrator)

On Monday, June 1st, the SWPA Chapter of the American College of Surgeons met virtually to consider interesting case presentations by surgical residents from area training programs.  Twelve cases were submitted and the top six were selected for discussion at the event.  Dr. Kristin Krupa began the evening with a presentation of “A Case of a Large Bowel Obstruction Caused by a Gallstone.”  Other presentations included “Delivering good news: a case of successful combined cesarean section and bowel resection for small bowel obstruction in the third trimester” presented by Katherine Hrebinko, MD, “Pneumopericardium in an otherwise healthy 24 year old male” presented by Kevin Train, MD, “Improvement of Liver Function Tests After Splenectomy in Patient with Schistosomiasis: A Case Review” presented by Peter Zak, MD, and “Complete Mesh Migration into the Small Bowel Following Parastomal Hernia Repair” presented by Waseem Lufti, MD.

Hillary Simon, DO was voted Most Interesting Case for her presentation on “A Bullet within the Pericardial Sac: To Remove or Not To Remove?”  Congratulations to Dr. Simon and to all our presenters and special thanks to Chapter President Dr. Alan Murdock for moderating the evening’s event.
