ASGE and JGES have collaborated to bring advanced techniques to endoscopists in the U.S. and so far more than 500 participants went through the course. The course will include presentations from the faculty covering indications and methods for ESD and followed by demonstrations of these techniques by the Masters in ex vivo and animate models. Participants will engage in intensive hands-on experience with expert teachers. The goal of this primer course will be to familiarize the attendees with all aspects of ESD that have not been taught before, such as treatment of GI bleeding during ESD using devices including the hemostatic forceps and clips. The goal of advanced course will be to improve skills participants for ESD and to have individualize nearly one to one teaching on the technique to improve or add to their skill. The learning objectives will be tailored to each participant during hands-on and will have case based learning and discussion.

Participants will be able to...

  • Identify the benefits of ESD for neoplastic and pre-neoplastic lesions of the GI tract (knowledge)
  • Identify the risks of ESD and the correct identification and management of complications (knowledge)
  • Differentiate the pros and cons of the different ESD techniques (analysis)
  • Demonstrate the basic techniques for submucosal tunneling (application)
  • Demonstrate proper techniques of endoscopic submucosal dissection (application)
  • Demonstrate traction method to assist ESD (application)
