endoscopic controversies in gastrointestinal diseases

2nd conference on
11-12th September, 2014
Copenhagen University Hospital Herlev, Denmark
Dear colleagues
Gastrointestinal endoscopy has since its birth undergone a tremendous development from stiff
­endoscopes to flexible instruments with computerized imaging and sophisticated High Definition
­visualisation of the mucosa. Even images from within the GI tract as well as beyond can be shown in great
details with different imaging technologies such as Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) and Confocal laser
­Endomicroscopy (CLE). Parallel to improved imaging, progress in endoscopic therapy has challenged
­traditional laparoscopic or open surgical methods. Some of the endoscopic methods are still experimental
but others are at a stage that needs expansion into the clinical treatment algorithm of GI diseases.
It is the focus of this conference to present endoscopic controversies in GI disease in order to discuss the
present status as well as the limitations of these procedures and methods with reference to traditional
surgery. We have made great effort to illuminate the topics from different angles. The conference will also
contain state of the art lectures by national and international experts intermixed with endoscopic live
demonstrations showing the latest technology.
After a very successful conference last year we know that the venue at Copenhagen University
Herlev Hospital is optimal for this conference and we are looking forward again to broadcast from
our ­endoscopic unit. We look forward to see you all in late summer in Copenhagen!
