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.
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
• Transnasal Endoscopy
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.
