CME Credits:  14.75

Course Description

Join guest faculty, Ikuo Hirano, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, and Mayo Clinic experts at the “4th Annual Mayo Clinic Esophageal Diseases Course,” December 2-3, 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona.

 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

•  Endoscopic Closure of Esophageal Perforations: Clips (through scope and over the scope) and Stents

•  Esophageal Laboratory Testing:  Reading Ambulatory pH Tests and Esophageal Manometry

•  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.
