ASGE Masterclass: Advanced Techniques in ERCP (On-Demand) | March 2020
Released: March 2020
Viewing Time: 7 hrs. 45 min.
ASGE Masterclasses are one-day, in-depth didactic courses presented by renowned experts on topics impacting your everyday clinical practice.

In the last two decades, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has evolved from a diagnostic procedure to an almost exclusively therapeutic one. ERCP is a skill demanding procedure that can lead to severe complications and death. ERCP occupies a distinct niche among endoscopic procedures focusing on advanced technique in ERCP in several areas, and will involve extensive video case materials, graphics and encourage vigorous audience interaction.
Discussions will also include a targeted review of cost-effectiveness, long-term sequelae, patient satisfaction, risk management, and technology and facility considerations. Case studies will be used to highlight key clinical points and facilitate discussions throughout the day.

Live course date is: March 6, 2020.
On-demand available by April 6, 2020
