Option 4
Advancements in Hepatitis Therapies
Thursday, December 19
6:15 pm – 9:00 pm
 
Intended Audience
Gastroenterologists, hepatologists, infectious disease specialists, and interested primary care physicians who treat viral hepatitis in their practices.
 
Course Description
This course is designed to provide physicians and other healthcare providers with up to date information on new therapies for hepatitis C and hepatitis B. The field of viral hepatitis therapy has been transformed with the use of direct-acting antiviral agents.  Recent long term data provide new perspectives on what can be accomplished with nucleotide or nucleoside polymerase inhibitors for hepatitis B, including fibrosis or cirrhosis regression. New screening guidelines for hepatitis C have the potential to identify a large number of patients with HCV infection, but strategies are needed to optimize the application of these guidelines and ensure linkage to proper care. Treatment with protease inhibitors is no longer novel and new data continue to emerge, including the results of treatment in challenging populations.  In the face of dramatic results being obtained with interferon-free regimens, clinicians must regularly assess the issue of whether to treat with currently available agents or await the advent of new treatment paradigms. The pace at which new information is emerging makes a symposium covering the latest developments highly opportune.    
 
Learning Objectives
  • Discuss recent observations on the long term outcome of HBV therapy with oral antiviral drugs.
  • Assess the impact of the recent CDC guidelines for HCV screening and present strategies for provision of care to newly identified patients.
  • Recognize the results of treatment of HCV infection with boceprevir and telaprevir, and interpret the recent data on new drugs that are expected to transform the landscape of therapy.
  • Choose practical approach to the treatment of HCV infection in patients with advanced cirrhosis and liver transplants. 
Accreditation
Approval for 2.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ is anticipated.

Option 5: ERCP for Everyday Problems: Hands-On Workshop with the Masters
Event Details
Date(s): December 19, 2013
Time: 5:45 PM  EST - 9:00 PM  EST
Location:
1535 Broadway New York, NY 10036

37th Annual New York Course
Advanced Hands-On Workshops and Satellite Symposia

Option 5
ERCP for Everyday Problems:  Hands-On Workshop with the Masters
Thursday, December 19
5:45 pm – 9:00 pm
 
Intended Audience
Practicing gastroenterologists who perform ERCP, advanced endoscopy fellows, and ERCP nurses and technicians.
 
Course Description
This course is designed to give participants a comprehensive review of cannulation techniques and the management of stones and strictures, and to teach new developments in scope technology and accessories. Rapid advances in technology are transforming the practice of ERCP, making it increasingly important for physicians to keep current with both the cognitive and hands-on aspects of procedural endoscopy through mentored practice with new equipment and methods.  This course will present technological advances and provide participants with mentored learning at the side of an expert endoscopist.

Learning Objectives
  • Apply standard and advanced techniques in ERCP
  • Assess new developments in endoscopic devices, including ERCP catheters and cannulation techniques
  • Identify and discuss the indications for pancreaticobiliary stenting and advances in techniques and stent technology
  • Describe the management of patients with indeterminate biliary strictures
  • Describe the use of mechanical lithotripsy in the management of difficult biliary stone disease
  • Incorporate into practice safe and effective techniques in advanced ERCP skills, including sphincterotomy, wire exchanges, and placement of plastic and metal stents.
Accreditation
Approval for 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ is anticipated.

Option 6: Advanced Endoscopic Resection and Closure: ESD/POEM Endoscopic Suturing Live Demonstration and Hands-On in Ex-Vivo Models
Event Details
Date(s): December 19, 2013
Time: 5:45 PM  EST - 9:00 PM  EST

Option 6
Advanced Endoscopic Resection and Closure: ESD/POEM Endoscopic Suturing Live Demonstration and Hands-On in Ex-Vivo Models
Thursday, December 19
5:45 pm – 9:00 pm
 
Intended Audience
Advanced GI endoscopists, surgical endoscopists, and others in the GI field who are interested in increasing their knowledge of techniques, equipment and devices used in cutting edge resection techniques such ESD and POEM.
 
Course Description
In this course, ESD and POEM will be demonstrated by experts in a live and interactive forum allowing free-flowing interaction between participants and faculty during the live demonstrations.  Structured training sessions to expose participants to devices currently used for POEM, ESD and endoscopic closure will follow the live demonstrations.  ESD was developed in Asia over a decade ago to allow endoscopic removal of early neoplasms and spare patients the standard approach of transabdominal surgery and organ resection. Due to the technical difficulty of ESD and extensive training required, adoption in the US has been slow. However, interest in this technique has increased with the advent of POEM, the first successful NOTES procedure now in an exponential growth phase. ESD is the parent technique for POEM and therefore an essential skill for POEM operators. There are very limited opportunities for US physicians to observe expert demonstrations of these techniques and engage in mentored hands-on exposure to the latest devices and techniques in tissue models. This course will provide such an opportunity.
 
Learning Objectives
  • Gain exposure to the techniques used to access the submucosal space (“third space”) and the utility of submucosal dissection in resecting neoplasms (when directed towards the lumen) or performing interventions on the muscularis propria (when directed away from the lumen)
  • Become familiar with currently available specialized electrical generators and electrical knives used in POEM and ESD
  • Obtain training in the use of an endoscopic suturing device for closure of defects
Accreditation
Approval for 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ is anticipated.
