Endoscopic Evaluation of Barrett's Esophagus (On-Demand) | February 2020
Description
During this program, Dr. Jason Samarasena will provide an overview of Barrett’s esophagus (BE) and how it is a precursor lesion to esophageal adenocarcinoma, a malignancy with a 5-year survival rate of less than 20%. Patients with Barrett’s esophagus undergo endoscopic surveillance with the goal of detecting dysplasia. The degree of dysplasia is the most widely accepted predictor of progression, and hence the surveillance intervals recommended by GI societies are based on the dysplasia grade. A review of the most current literature will be discussed, with highlights indicating Barrett's esophagus both endoscopic surveillance interval and treatment recommendations being based on the presence and grade of histopathological diagnosed dysplasia. Levels of surveillance and other factors will be discussed in detail and how the clinician should take into consideration their evaluation of this patient population.

The Live event was held February 27, 2020.
Learning Objectives
1. List the risk of progression of Barrett’s indefinite for dysplasia to dysplastic Barrett’s and/or esophageal adenocarcinoma.
2. Identify the risk factors and application of a scoring system for clinical failure after peroral endoscopic myotomy for achalasia.
3. Compare and contrast linked color imaging and narrow-band imaging for colorectal polyp detection.

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.
