Esophageal disease is a rapidly-developing area marked by significant advances in diagnosis, therapy and identification of new diseases. In this continuing medical education activity, a comprehensive approach will be taken to explore these exciting advancements including high-resolution manometry and impedance monitoring, new techniques in endoscopic detection and treatment of Barrett’s esophagus, and insights into new diseases such as eosinophilic esophagitis.
A special feature of this program is a hands-on workshop for interpretation and performance of motility studies, new endoscopic imaging techniques, endoscopic mucosal resection and ablation, and transnasal endoscopy. Participants will rotate through each of the following stations:
- EMR Cap
- EMR Ligation
- Radiofrequency Ablation
- Endoscopic Closure of Esophageal Perforations: Clips (through scope and over the scope) and Stents
- Motility (Basic and Advanced)
- Transnasal Endoscopy
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
- Summarize principles and interpretation of esophageal high resolution manometry.
- Recognize current management options in achalasia particularly the role of POEM and menometric classification of achalasia subtypes.
- Identify appropriate use of diet, drug and dilation therapy in patients with eosinophilic esophagitis.
- Complete a comprehensive assessment of patients with symptoms of refractory reflux.
- Identify which patients with refractory GERD are appropriate to refer for surgery.
- Identify non-endoscopic methods of screening for Barrett’s esophagus and diagnosis and monitoring of eosinophilic esophagitis.
- Summarize new guidelines in the management of patients with Barrett’s esophagus.
