Type: DVDs


This CME activity consists of the ASGE video, Endoscopic Management of Barrett's Esophagus (DV047), followed by a post-assessment and evaluation.

In the past few years, multiple new endoscopic techniques have evolved for ablation of dysplasia in Barrett’s esophagus. This video provides viewers with a comprehensive presentation of the endoscopic diagnosis and treatment techniques for Barrett’s esophagus, including endoscopic mucosal resection, multipolar electrocoagulation, argon plasma coagulation, photodynamic therapy, radiofrequency ablation and cryotherapy.

Target Audience:
