The agenda includes the latest scientific advances in gastrointestinal research, treatment of digestive diseases and clinical practice management.

Presentations at the meeting will focus on new challenges gastroenterologists face in patient care and advances in preventing and treating digestive diseases.

  • Capsule Endoscopy and Small Bowel Tumor Detection. This study investigates the effectiveness of capsule endoscopy at detecting tumors in the small bowel.

  • Smoking and Colon Polyps. Two studies explore smoking and how it can increase one's risk of developing colon polyps.

  • Virtual Colonoscopy and Mortality Rates. A model predicting complications for colorectal screening options found a greater risk of cancer deaths and procedure-related deaths in virtual colonoscopy as compared to traditional colonoscopy.

  • Obesity. Several studies at the Meeting explore obesity: The link between heartburn, GERD and esophageal cancer in the obese; A correlation found between increased body mass index (BMI) and the risk of colorectal neoplasia in women; and the positive effect laparoscopic gastric bypass
