ASGE-JGES Masters Course in POEM and Third Space Endoscopy

ASGE-JGES Masters Course in POEM and Third Space Endoscopy
The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and the Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society (JGES) invite you to participate in this one-of-a-kind inaugural immersion course in POEM, taught by highly experienced world-renowned experts. This course is planned to prepare participants for the clinical application of interventional endoscopy using submucosal space and will educate not only technical aspect of submucosal endoscopy, but also clinical diagnosis of Achalasia, indications, potential issues and outcome measurements. Learners will learn steps and techniques to bring back to their home institution to practice further to prepare clinical application of the new technique. The capabilities of interventional gastrointestinal endoscopy have significantly increased over the past several decades. Improvements in devices and techniques have eased the transfer of novel concepts from bench to bedside. The concept of submucosal endoscopy with mucosal flap safety valve has enabled endoscopists to safely and securely use submucosal space, or now called the third space. Peroral endoscopic myotomy was the initial procedure performed utilizing submucosal space in patients with achalasia. Subsequently, this technique has been used successfully for removal of subepithelial tumors from the esophagus and the stomach. All third-space endoscopy procedures use a similar technique—a submucosal tunnel is created, and then a myotomy is performed or a subepithelial tumor is dissected away from the initial site out of the mucosal incision. The other potential indications for third-space endoscopy include refractory gastroparesis, Zenker diverticulum, and restoration of completely obstructed esophageal lumen. Although the emerging data look promising for peroral endoscopic myotomy and pyloromyotomy, randomized studies with long-term follow-up are lacking. Submucosal endoscopy is largely safe, and the occurrence of major adverse events is uncommon. Therefore, the majority of third-space endoscopy procedures can be performed in an endoscopy suite. The most frequently encountered adverse events during submucosal endoscopy include those related to insufflation, bleeding, and mucosal perforations.

Target Technique: POEM, POET(STER), G-POEM, (Z-POEM et al)?

Learning Objectives
1. Identifies the benefits of POEM for Achalasia and other esophagogastric motility disorder
2. Differentiate types of esophageal motility disorder
3. Demonstrates basic techniques for submucosal tunneling and intervention
4. Demonstrates proper techniques of myotomy

Designed for advanced GI endoscopists, surgeons, and others in the GI field who are interested in learning the most advanced technique in POEM/submucosal endoscopy.
