3rd International Symposium on Complications in GI Endoscopy
June 28-29, 2013
Maritim Airport Hotel Hannover
Congress Language: English
Course Director: Peter N. Meier
Scientific Committee: Lars Aabakken, Ian Gralnek, Rob Hawes, Helmut Messmann, Christa Meyenberger, Thierry Ponchon, Krish Ragunath, Nageshwar Reddy
Being committed endoscopists, we are all concerned that even minor invasive procedures may have side effects which might result in a so-called complication. The constant evolution, not only of imaging but also of invasive or surgical concepts, requires a permanent process of reflection. The aims of the symposium are to:
• Identify critical incidents and complications
• Communicate unforeseen events
• Develop strategies to avoid or minimize complications
• Demonstrate therapeutical measures for the eventuality of a complication

7th Annual St. Louis Live Therapeutic Endoscopy Course
Friday, July 19, 2013
Washington University Medical Center, St. Louis, Missouri
Participants will observe live endoscopy demonstrations with moderation by guest faculty and will have the opportunity to engage in a continual interaction with the endoscopy team. At the conclusion of this seminar attendees should be able to:
- Provide state-of-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.
- Assess biliary and pancreatic tract pathology by incorporating new technologies, including cholangioscopy and pancreatoscopy, into practice.
- State the approaches to cannulate the bile duct and pancreatic 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.
- Discuss the role of EMR and ablative therapies for Barrett's esophagus within a case presentation and state when to apply each technique.
- Define techniques for deep small bowel examination and removal of large colon polyps.
- Explain the clinical application of POEM (Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy).
- Provide an up to date report of POEM and its limitations/complications.

10th Annual Course: 2013 Mayo Clinic EUS Summit
August 1 – 3, 2013
Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota

Atlanta Therapeutic Live Advanced endoscopy Symposium (ATLAS)
August 20-30, 2013
Join us for the Atlanta Therapeutic Live Advanced endoscopy Symposium (ATLAS). Thursday is a one day course for senior GI fellows nationwide. The fellows course features case based and video based didactic presentations, lunch with faculty, and a Hands-on lab with sophisticated models covering areas such as cannulation, EUS-FNA, confocal endomicroscopy, and ablation. A scholarship program has been developed for fellows (apply early, registration is limited). Friday is the live course for fellows, faculty, gastroenterologists and allied health professionals. The live course features endoscopic cases presented in rear-screen projection super-HD covering multiple areas of advanced interventional endoscopy with an internationally acclaimed faculty. Next generation techniques will be highlighted. Please contact us with any questions - we look forward to seeing you at the course.

Are you keeping up with advances in diagnosis and treatment of GI disorders? New research, clinical trials, techniques, and treatments are arriving on the scene daily. These advances pose substantial challenges to many GI practitioners to stay abreast of the information and interpret its impact on clinical practices. As a result, gaps may exist in GI practitioners’ knowledge, competencies, and practices regarding the best clinical practices for patients with GI disorders.
