AASLD/ASGE Endoscopy Course

Endoscopy in Patients with Hepatobiliary Disorders: Evolving Concepts, Technologies and Techniques

Course Directors:
Barham Abu Dayyeh, MD and Subhas Banerjee, MD

CME: 6.5 credits

CME/Certificate of Attendance


The overall goal of this activity is to educate our target audience in the state-of-the-art best practices pertaining to diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy in patients with hepatobiliary disease. This should result in a significant improvement in their understanding of the relative benefits and risks of these modalities, in optimizing patient selection for different endoscopic interventions, and in the performance of these endoscopic interventions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Advise on the state of the literature and "best practice" consensus recommendations regarding these commonly encountered issues prior to endoscopy
  • Identify the most up-to-date endoscopic and non-endoscopic management strategies, along with their associated risks and outcomes
  • Discuss the management of gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE), specifically the relative merits of difference ablative endoscopic therapies such as: radiofrequency ablation, Argon Plasma coagulation and cryotherapy
  • Describe evolving technologies and techniques in the management of both benign and malignant hepatobiliary disease
