ASGE Masterclass: Advanced Techniques in ERCP

Dates: March 16, 2018

The 2018 ASGE Masterclass on Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is your premier opportunity to advance your ERCP skills and expertise in a one-day. ERCP occupies a distinct niche amongst endoscopic procedures: ERCP requires uniquely specialized knowledge and skills, applying both endoscopy and fluoroscopy in unison to diagnose and treat—simultaneously—a broad spectrum of biliary and pancreatic duct disorders. Learn from the masters how ERCP has evolved from a largely diagnostic procedure to primarily high-impact therapeutic intervention.
Overview
What You Will Learn
• Learn from the masters how ERCP has evolved from a largely diagnostic procedure to a primarily high-impact therapeutic intervention
• Gain an understanding of the current advances in technology and techniques; analyze the evidence upon which today’s standard of care and high-quality ERCP practice is based
• Learn about the latest and best techniques for cannulation, sphincterotomy, stone extraction, and management of strictures and leaks
• Understand how to choose from the wide array of new diagnostic and therapeutic devices, then apply them with expertise
• Develop a strong grasp on how to prevent and mitigate adverse outcomes by identifying risk factors for complications before they happen, and treat them proficiently if they do occur
• Learn to use today’s digital fluoroscopy features skillfully

Discussions will also include a targeted review of cost-effectiveness, long-term sequelae, patient satisfaction, risk management, and technology and facility considerations. Case studies will be used to highlight key clinical points and facilitate discussions throughout the day.
