This recorded ASGE Master Class will feature a state-of-the-art didactic discussion of the diagnosis and management of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease and Barrett’s esophagus.

Join Philip O. Katz, MD and Sachin B. Wani, MD, FASGE, as they discuss the basic tenets of "high value" endoscopy in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and Barrett's esophagus and provide a detailed approach to the diagnosis and management of GERD with a focus on patients with refractory GERD.

These experts will also provide recommendations regarding management of difficult to treat esophageal strictures and provide a comprehensive approach to several controversies in Barrett’s esophagus including screening, surveillance and endoscopic eradication therapy.

Optimal Viewing Experience in 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:
  • Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  • 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.
  • Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind.
  • 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
