Which type of video can I send as a contribution to WebSurg?
Videos of minimally invasive surgery should be scientifically relevant, and deal with one of the specialties which can be found on the website. They should put forward a surgical technique or a surgical instrument, and bring something new or interesting to the medical community. If you have a video of an operation or a technique you are proud of, share it with the rest of the world !
Can I send a video presenting an unusual / controversial technique?
After you have sent us your video, the peer-review committee will review it and you will receive a detailed response concerning the approval or the refusal of your video. We do have a section dedicated to “unusual / controversial cases”, which could correspond to your video. We are happy to receive contributions featuring uncommon and pioneering techniques.
Can I send a video in which the face of the patient is visible?
The face of the patient should be blurred in the video. The patient should not be identifiable in any other way, anything that could cause the identification of the patient on any part of the body should be blurred. If you cannot do it we can take care of this for you.
Can I add animations and personalize my video (sound, colors, illustrations)?
The video should not have any background music, it can include some explanations from the surgeon, and should be presented using a neutral background. Some colors and illustrations can be added as long as they don’t take the focus away from the content of the video. If you have animations which can illustrate your operation, you can insert them into the video.
