Enhance your working knowledge of state-of-the-art practices in the endoscopic management of patients with advanced cirrhosis, biliary tract disease, chronic cholestatic conditions, and other liver diseases—both before and after liver transplantation. The course will cover fundamental issues related to the quality and safety of endoscopic practice in the patient with liver disease, including safe administration of sedation as it relates to disease-specific issues such as coagulopathy. Participants will learn about management and prevention of variceal hemorrhage, as well as advanced endoscopic techniques such as cholangioscopy for biliary disease.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Select patients with liver disease who may undergo endoscopic procedures
  • Identify standards of care for treating portal hypertensive conditions, including esophageal and gastric varices and vascular ectasia
  • Choose appropriate testing and staging procedures for patients with biliary strictures and suspected cholangiocarcinoma
  • Recommend appropriate endoscopic procedures for management of biliary complications of transplantation
