asge-aga clinical congressAGA-ASGE 2013 Clinical Congress: New Partnership, New Format

Best Clinical Practices: 2013

January 17-19, 2013
Del Coronado, San Diego, CA

AGA and ASGE have partnered together on a new Clinical Congress of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Best Clinical Practices: 2013. Led by Congress Director David A. Lieberman, MD, AGAF, FASGE, and Co-Directors Gary W. Falk, MD, MS, FASGE and John A. Martin, MD, FASGE, this program is designed to reflect both organizations’ long-standing expertise within the GI community. The main congress sessions cover the full spectrum of GI and hepatic disorders, delivering a comprehensive overview on optimal approaches to diagnosis and management.

New this year is the addition of two ASGE hands-on courses designed to complement the didactic sessions and covering advanced techniques in the upper and lower GI tracts. The first hands-on session, “Upper GI endoscopy: Esophagus and gastric therapies,” will include techniques such as clip hemostasis, argon plasma coagulation, cryotherapy, radio frequency ablation, endoscopic mucosal resection and esophageal stenting. The second hands-on session, “Lower GI endoscopy: Colonic and intestinal therapies,” will focus on skills specific to post-polypectomy bleeding, such as hemostatic clipping and detachable snares, as well as advanced technologies such as balloon enteroscopy, dye spraying and colonic stenting. A prominent faculty of active practitioners from both academic and private settings will guide attendees through managing both technical as well as cognitive challenges faced during endoscopic practice.
