EGD Masterclass: EoE, Strictures, and Pre-malignant Gastric Conditions (On-demand) | January 2023
Release Date: February 2023
Viewing Time:
6 hours
The increasing prevalence of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and gastric cancer represents a growing public health problem for the GI and endoscopic community. Meanwhile, our understanding of benign conditions of the foregut have expanded with examples such as EoE and esophageal strictures. Forward trends are inclusive of new endoscopic techniques and treatments, which are becoming more widely available. Upper GI endoscopy is commonly used for diagnosis, screening, surveillance, treatment and monitoring purposes for a variety of these pathologies. The quality of the examination varies based on both technology and the individual endoscopist. These variations can translate into significantly different clinical outcomes because of the often-subtle presentations of upper GI tract diseases, ranging from benign to precancerous to cancer. This course will cover a range of upper GI techniques and technologies, focusing on certain image-enhancing technologies or tissue acquisition strategies to aid in overall detection rates and classification of upper GI cancers, precancers and benign pathologies.

This course contains recordings from the live course that took place on January 28, 2023.
Learning Objectives
  • Identify, characterize and diagnose patients who present with dysphagia and determine appropriate management plans to optimize endoscopy and reduce delay in diagnosis
  • Classify a diagnosis for eosinophilic esophagitis and determine appropriate plans for monitoring disease and response to therapy
  • Recognize mucosal irregularities and visible lesions and how tissue can be diagnosed, biopsied, excised or sampled in the esophagus and stomach Select the role of and optimal management of H. pylori and atrophic gastritis and gastric intestinal metaplasia
