    • Station 2: Endoscopic Treatment of Zencker’s Diverticulum: Principles and Techniques for successful Flexible Endoscopic Myotomy (25:00min)

    Wajeeh Salah, MD and Todd H. Baron, MD FASGE

    The treatment of Zenker’s diverticulum can be challenging in elderly patients with multiple medical comorbidities who may not be good candidates for an open surgical or rigid endoscopic repair.  The technique of flexible endoscopic myotomy is a relatively new approach and is becoming increasingly practiced among other therapeutic endoscopic procedures.   The ability to perform flexible endoscopic myotomy is an invaluable addition to the armamentarium of the practicing therapeutic gastroenterologist. This educational video program will provide a foundation for understanding the pathophysiology, tools, treatment strategies and challenges in treating patients with Zenker’s diverticulum.  This focus of this video will be to emphasize an effective step-by-step technique and highlight key principles for the safe and successful treatment of Zenker’s diverticulum using flexible endoscopic myotomy.

    • Station 3: Diagnosis and treatment of Early Gastric Cancer(27:00 min)

    Hisanao Hamanaka, MD, Takuji Gotoda, MD, Ronald Yeh, MD, Roy M. Soetikno, MD

    Significant controversies exist on the best practice for endoscopic management of peri-pancreatic fluid collections (PFCs). The aim of this educational video is to provide the viewers with an in-depth discussion in the latest updates and controversies in endoscopic management of PFCs. Particular emphasis has been placed on the following topics including the technical and technological evolution in endoscopic drainage of PFCs, the 2012 Revised Atlanta’s criteria for defining PFCs, the optimal approach for draining pseudocysts, the role of endoscopic drainage in pancreatic necrosis, the technical considerations in endoscopic drainage, the specific stent systems for EUS-guided drainage, the adjunctive measures for successful endoscopic drainage, and management of adverse events.

Also featured are the complementarities of dye spraying and electronic image enhancement in the detection of metaplasia and neoplasia, applications in inflammatory bowel disease, and co-utilization of IEE with advanced mucosal resection techniques.

    • Station 3: The detection, Diagnosis and treatment of superficial Nonpolypoid Barret’s Neoplasia-A Potencial New Approach (25:00min)

    Roy Soetikno, MD, FASGE, Tonya Kaltenbach, MD, FASGE, 
    Noriya Uedo, MD, and Takuji Gotoda, MD VA Palo Alto, Palo Alto CA

    This 25-minute learning video provides new concepts of the detection, diagnosis and treatment of superficial nonpolypoid Barrett’s neoplasia. The concept of the detection of neoplasia using white light endoscopy and image enhanced endoscopy is explained in detail through the use of numerous examples. Similarly, a new concept of the diagnosis of superficial Barrett’s neoplasia using the microvessels and surface findings is described. Technique of using indigo carmine to help define the border of the neoplasia is shown. The video also describes the concept of using the resection and ablation technique in order to perform an oncologic R0 resection and ablate the remaining Barrett’s. This presentation is designed to provide new ideas that hopefully can lead to a renaissance in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of superficial nonpolypoid Barrett’s neoplasia.

    • Station 4: Endoscopic Interpretation and Therapy of Severe Lower GI Bleeding (33:13 min)

    Kaltenbach, MD, Peter B. Kelsey, MD, Kenneth R. McQuaid MD, FASGE 

    Lower gastrointestinal bleeding is common, accounting for approximately 30% of all major GI bleeding. The approach to lower GI bleeding is controversial. Recent studies have shown that urgent colonoscopy can be safe and therapeutic. The purpose of this educational program is to describe the art and science of the endoscopic management of patients with acute severe lower GI bleeding
