This on-demand course will provide advanced GI fellows and endosonographers with a comprehensive overview of how therapeutic endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is used to care for patients who have gastrointestinal and non-gastrointestinal disorders. It will cover everything from the origins of the EUS to discussing and demonstrating the fine points of the procedure to hands-on practice. Renowned faculty will address the procedure's equipment, technical aspects, diagnostic utility, and therapeutic uses. The didactic portion of this course will include case discussions and debates, while the bio-skills lab portion will feature animate models that participants will be able to use to demonstrate the EUS procedures that are encountered in everyday practice - as well as addressing some new and advanced EUS applications.
Learning Objectives

  • Identify potential common adverse events associated with therapeutic EUS (knowledge)
  • Summarize the best practices that are used to manage common adverse events associated with therapeutic EUS (synthesis)
  • Explain the utility and role of EUS for accessing and draining the bile and pancreatic ducts (evaluation)
  • Explain the utility and role of EUS guided celiac plexus block and celiac plexus neurolysis (evaluation)

Optimal Viewing Experience in GI Leap
Although all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, we currently recommend using Chrome for the best functionality when accessing GI Leap. Please note that Internet Explorer is not a supported browser. Follow these 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.
