Advances in Technology and Understanding of Esophageal Diseases


December 5-6, 2014
Mayo Clinic Education Center
Phoenix, Arizona


CME Credits: 13.5

Esophageal disease is a rapidly-developing area marked by significant advances in diagnosis, therapy and identification of new diseases. In this continuing medical education activity, a comprehensive approach will be taken to explore these exciting advancements including high-resolution manometry and impedance monitoring, new techniques in endoscopic detection and treatment of Barrett’s esophagus, and insights into new diseases such as eosinophilic esophagitis. A special feature of this program is a hands-on workshop for interpretation and performance of motility studies, new endoscopic imaging techniques, endoscopic mucosal resection and ablation, and transnasal endoscopy. Participants will rotate through each of the following stations:
• EMR Cap • EMR Ligation • Radiofrequency Ablation • Cryotherapy • Motility • Transnasal Endoscopy

This course is designed for practicing gastroenterologists, fellows and residents in gastroenterology. Thoracic surgeons, otolaryngologists and pulmonologists, as well as other health care professionals with an interest in esophageal diseases may benefit from this program.

Course Director: Prasad G. Iyer, M.D.
Course Co-Directors: Kenneth R. DeVault, M.D., David A. Katzka, M.D., and Francisco C. Ramirez, M.D.
