After the compulsory break last year, the endoscopy postgraduate course is back and is being held in a hybrid format this year in line with the signs of the times.
We look forward to welcoming as many participants as possible to Vienna on November 19th and 20th. For those who cannot come or if circumstances do not allow, the event will be streamed on the internet.
When selecting the topics, we tried to catch up on what had been lost and stretched the range of topics particularly wide.
In addition to high-end procedures such as rendezvous and hybrid interventions using EUS, we will highlight the news about the ERCP.
“Endoscopy in everyday life” is also of particular importance: What is new to improve the detection rate of polyps, what do we need to know about inflammation in the intestine in 2021? In gastroscopy, we devote ourselves to subtle changes that may escape the examiner’s attention, but also to new methods of defect closure or the ablation of benign and premalignant changes.
So that we also consider the patient as a whole in endoscopy, another focus will be on the characteristics and needs of special collectives: We will devote ourselves to special accompanying circumstances such as cardiac or liver diseases as well as the special requirements for endoscopy in old people.
