 A Revolution in the Management of Biliary Strictures

Saturday, April 13, 2019
5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Over 500,000 patients undergo ERCP each year. It remains a challenging but also effective solution in the management of biliary strictures.  This session will focus on the most up to date endoscopic treatment options and instrumentation for the management of biliary stricture disease.

Something Old, Something New, Something Cold, Something Blue

Sunday, April 14, 2019
12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR) is a technique that is used for the staging and treatment of superficial neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract. This procedure is an alternative to surgical resection of mucosal and submucosal neoplastic lesions as well as  intramucosal cancers.  This session will focus on lesions in the colon and review the techniques used to manage these issues along with the technology to diagnose and resect them.

Superbugs and Slime: Challenges in a New Era of Endoscope Processing

Monday, April 15, 2019
7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.

Nothing is as straightforward as it seems, and processing of endoscopes is no exception.  One expects that current approaches should eliminate the microbes we are most concerned about – those pathogens and superbugs that have been involved in documented cases of endoscope-associated transmission and infection. This session will explore the relationships between effective endoscope processing and the microbes it is designed to eliminate.  We will discuss how biofilm formation makes relatively straightforward processing protocols difficult to execute and how it impacts the newer approaches to endoscope processing including sterilization, 2X high-level disinfection and culturing endoscopes.
