6th Annual Long Island Live Endoscopy Course: New Frontiers in Endoscopy
POEM, ESD, Full-thickness resection, Suturing, Endoscopic Bariatric Surgery, & more
Friday, February 28, 2014, 7:30am - 6:00pm
Garden City Hotel, Garden City, NY
Optional Hands-on Lab with the faculty: POEM, ESD & Endoscopic Suturing with the Masters
Saturday, March 1st, 8:00am-1:00pm
Course Director: Stavros N. Stavropoulos, MD, Winthrop University Hospital, Mineola, NY
Master Faculty: Christopher J. Gostout, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN; Haruhiro Inoue, Showa University, Yokohama, Japan; Alessandro Repici, IRCCS Istituto Clinico Humanitas, Rozzano, Milan, Italy; Christopher C. Thompson, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA; Pinghong Zhou, Zhongshan Hospital, Shanghai, China
The 2014 course will build on the success of last year's course which included 3 live POEMs, an EFTR (endoscopic full thickness resection) of a GIST, a STER (submucosal tunnel endoscopic resection) of a large esophageal tumor in contact with the aorta and pulmonary artery, colonic and gastric ESDs. The 13 cases performed in one day prompted Haru Inoue to comment that "these were the hardest and most advanced cases ever done as part of a live endoscopy course". Chris Gostout commented that this was "the most unique live course on the globe from the perspective of demonstrating where interventional endoscopy can and should be going”. All lectures and live cases from the 2013 course are available at www.WinthropEndoscopy.org. This year's course boasts again a "dream- team" of resection visionaries: Chris Gostout, Submucosal Endoscopy pioneer; Haru Inoue, "father of POEM"; Pinghong Zhou, pioneer of EFTR and STER and highest volume POEM operator in the world and Alessandro Repici, colonic ESD master. We plan an "encore" of last year's simultaneous live demonstration of 3 POEMs illustrating technique variations followed by live ESD, EFTR and STER cases and- staying on this NOTES theme- an endoscopic sutured sleeve gastroplasty, by bariatric endoscopy master Christopher Thompson. New this year, an optional hands-on lab, "POEM, ESD & Endoscopic Suturing with the masters". The course venue, Winthrop University Hospital, in Mineola, NY, close to all major NY airports, is the site of the first human POEM, EFTR and STER procedures in the US, one of few US centers with extensive ESD and POEM experience and one of few US training centers for ESD and POEM.

7th Annual Penn Live: GI Endoscopy and Liver Disease
March 7-8, 2014
The 7th Annual Penn Live: GI Endoscopy and Liver Disease is scheduled to be held Friday-Saturday, March 7-8, 2014 at the BRB II/III Auditorium, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. The program is designed to demonstrate the application and execution of therapeutic gastrointestinal endoscopy. Using a format of lectures and live cases, our faculty will address important challenges and potential solutions in the endoscopic management of digestive and related disorders including benign and malignant disorders of the esophagus, gastroduodenum, pancreas, bile ducts, and colorectum. Additional topics will include applications of endoluminal resection, radiofrequency ablation, argon plasma coagulation, ERCP, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), polypectomy, and stent therapies. Also presented will be the current research and recommendations for managing patients with acute and chronic liver disease, including viral and autoimmune hepatitis, metabolic liver disease, portal hypertensive bleeding, refractory ascites, hepatic encephalopathy, liver transplantation and post liver transplant considerations.

Live from University of Chicago! Endoscopy and Novel Technologies
April 11 – 12, 2014
CME certified: 16.75

Center for Care and Discovery
5700 South Maryland, 7th Floor
Chicago, IL 60637
The field of endoscopy burgeoned from the ability to look at gross lining with the scope camera to broaden out to myriad different technologies using the scope as the vehicle. Visualization has gone beyond looking at the surface to assessing details at even a microscopic level with endomicroscopy. Diagnostics have improved with improved tissue acquisition in previously challenging areas in the pancreaticobiliary system with ERCP, cholangioscopy, advanced imaging techniques and EUS FNA. Surgeons and oncologists rely on endoscopist increasingly for appropriate diagnosis and staging. Previously surgically treated benign and malignant diseases are now treated endoscopically, including pseudocyst drainage, endoscopic resection and ablation. The lines between surgery and endoscopy are blurred with the entertainment of transluminal surgery. All of these new frontiers of endoscopy are rapidly evolving. This course will outline where standard practices in endoscopy are currently and how new innovations may enhance or revolutionize endoscopy practice in the future. A series of lectures, live case demonstrations, and hands-on tutorials will be conducted by an expert international endoscopy faculty.
