Management of Esophageal Diverticula (On-Demand) | June 2021
Release Date: June 25, 2021
Viewing Time:
1 hour

This webinar will provide an overview of diagnosis and management of various diverticulum in the esophagus. Diverticula most frequently is related to a motility disorder, such as achalasia or esophageal scleroderma, which prevent the muscles of the esophagus from moving food properly into the stomach. Diagnosis of an esophageal diverticulum can often be done by fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) and/or an esophagram/barium swallow.  Various case studies and treatment options will be reviewed, including surgical, endoscopic or both.

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Because all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, it is not always practical to point to a particular browser as "better" than another. Because browsers are free, you can easily shift from one to another for various purposes. Whatever browser you are using, here are some tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
