    "Pediatric Endovascular Hemorrhage Control: An Idea Whose Time Has Come" by Dr. Howard Pryor, Le Bonheur Children's Hospital - Memphis, Tennessee outlines several scenarios where endovascular hemorrhage control may be expressly advantageous for children and will identify methods for the implementation of an endovascular hemorrhage control program for children in each case.


    Dr. Patrick Murchy of the Acute Care Surgery Committee presents "Acute Care Surgery: An Origin Story". Depending on your perspective, Acute Care Surgery is either the oldest surgical specialty or the youngest. Before the current sub-specialization of surgeons was the era of the Generalist: the true general surgeon.

    What are micro-volunteer opportunities? 

    Volunteering is a great way for AAST members and associate members to become involved in the AAST community. However, not all members and associate members are able to volunteer for committees due to logistical or time constraints. Micro-volunteering will allow members to volunteer their time in short and convenient chunks with defined and achievable goals.
