28th Annual Anesthesiology Journal Symposium
Initial Results of Clinical Trials
28th Annual Anesthesiology Journal Symposium:
WHAT’S NEW IN THE OLD?
With advances in medical care, patients are living longer and are presenting for surgery at later ages and with more co-morbidities. Anesthesiologists are facing the challenge of guiding increasingly elderly patients through surgery to the desired end-points of enhanced recovery and optimal quality of life.
The 2019 Anesthesiology Journal Symposium will feature plenary lectures by invited experts who will address current concepts and current research in the field to provide a better understanding of:
- How to identify older patients at risk for adverse perioperative outcome
- Strategies to be used for preoperative optimization of the elderly
- Best practices for perioperative management of older surgical patients
- When should frailty result in a change in surgical approach or anesthetic plan?
- Leading ways to prevent postoperative delirium
- Treatment of postoperative delirium
In addition to the plenary lectures, eight research abstracts will be presented orally during the second half of the symposium.
We invite research abstracts on this topic from all related fields: basic science, translational, clinical, quality improvement, and education research. The top eight abstracts will be presented orally during the second half of the symposium. All abstract submissions must meet deadlines and guidelines set by the American Society of Anesthesiologists. The authors of abstracts selected for the symposium will be offered an opportunity to submit their full manuscripts to Anesthesiology for inclusion in an issue to be published in the spring of 2020.
The Journal is inviting full-length article submissions related to the topic. Articles must meet Journal submission guidelines.
Article submission deadline is August 1, 2019.

Anesthesiology 2019 ASA Annual Meeting Announcement and Call for Manuscripts
Anesthesiology is sponsoring a Major Clinical Trials Session at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA). The purpose is to provide a high-profile venue for initial presentation of major randomized clinical trial results to a large audience. The session is designed for substantial clinical trials with clinically important primary outcomes. Presentations must be based on research that has been accepted for publication. Research selected for the Trials Session will also be featured in ASA press releases.
Presentation at the Major Clinical Trials Session is restricted to results that have not been presented anywhere outside the authors home institution(s). All results presented in the Trials Session will be based on manuscripts that have been accepted for publication in Anesthesiology, or in select major multi-specialty journals (e.g. Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, Nature, BMJ, etc). Publication in Anesthesiology online will coincide with the Annual Meeting. Presentation of research to be published in Anesthesiology or select major multi-specialty journals in dates with proximity to the ASA Annual Meeting will also be considered, on a case by case basis.
Anesthesiology encourages investigators to take advantage of the Journal’s Major Clinical Trials Session, a high-profile forum for presentation of substantial clinical trial results. Manuscripts for presentation at the Trials Session will be selected by the editorial Board of Anesthesiology.
Submission deadline is July 1, 2019.
Manuscripts for Anesthesiology should be submitted electronically via the Journal's online submission system.
Please identify your submission as a candidate for the 2019 ASA Clinical Trials session.
Manuscripts that have been accepted at other high-profile journals, with anticipated publication dates in proximity to the ASA meeting should be submitted, along with the letter of acceptance, directly to the Managing Editor of Anesthesiology (Managing-Editor@asahq.org).
