In this continuing medical education, a comprehensive approach will be taken to explore these exciting advancements including high-resolution manometry and impedance monitoring, new techniques in endoscopic detection and treatment of Barrett’s esophagus, and insights into new diseases such as eosinophilic esophagitis.
A special feature is a hands-on workshop for interpretation and performance of motility studies, new endoscopic imaging techniques, and endoscopic mucosal resection and ablation.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
• Demonstrate a structured approach for the evaluation of patients with noncardiac chest pain.
• Recognize current management options for diffuse esophageal spasm.
• Summarize the appropriate use of tools to diagnose and assess treatment response in eosinophilic esophagitis.
• Identify patients with Barrett's esophagus who are appropriate candidates for endoscopic ablation.
• Examine the potential role of opioid medications as a cause of abnormal esophageal motility.
• Describe the appropriate management of patients with refractory esophageal strictures.
