8th Annual St. Louis Live Therapeutic Endoscopy Course
Friday & Saturday, July 18-19, 2014
Washington University Medical Center, St. Louis, Missouri
The intended result of this live activity is to increase knowledge, competency, and performance in the practice of ERCP, EUS, treatment of Barrett’s esophagus, large polypectomy, and to raise awareness of endoscopic/non-surgical treatments of obesity. At the conclusion of this seminar, attendees should be able to:
- Provide state-of-the-art care within the field of interventional endoscopy. This will enable attendees to integrate technologic device advances with improved understanding of disease response to endoscopic interventions in an effort to improve patient care.
- Discuss the role of EMR and ablative therapies for dysplastic Barrett's esophagus and early esophageal adenocarcinoma.
- Recognize that most large colon polyps can be successfully removed endoscopically and that surgery is required in only a minority of cases.
- State the approaches to cannulate the bile duct and maintain access using various techniques and equipment platforms.
- Discuss the role of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic ultrasonography in the management of pancreatic and biliary pathology such as cysts, tumors and pseudocysts.
- Describe emerging endoscopic treatments of obesity which may serve as adjuvant therapy or an alternative to surgical treatment.
