Call for clinical cases

We have received an outstanding number of high-quality clinical cases!

Stay tuned - results are expected end of February.


The call for clinical cases is closed.

Important dates

  • 23 January 2017: Clinical cases submissions open
  • 6 February 2017: Deadline for clinical submissions
  • End February 2017: Case results will be announced


Coordinated by the Heart failure specialists Of Tomorrow (HOT), the sessions will open the discussion on clinical case management:

  • Clinical Case Competition: the best four cases are presented in this session in the Agora. The five finalists are offered a free registration to have the chance to compete: in 22 minutes, they are asked to summarise their case and explain how they managed the patient.
  • Clinical Case sessions: also held in the Agora, these sessions showcase the most challenging cases submitted around the same topic. 
  • Clinical Case Corner: selected presenters will display their cases in this dedicated zone of the Poster Area and defend their case in front of their moderator and the audience during the coffee breaks.

Accepted cases will be published in the abstract supplement of the European Journal of Heart Failure

Dr Ewa Jankowksa, coordinator of the programme was interviewed for Heart Failure 2016 Congress News: “These Clinical Cases are special”, she explains. “They are unique; often it concerns difficult cases which usually expand beyond the guidelines. Unexpected events and no standard treatment guarantee that this is exciting and very educational material.”
