Presentation

With Module One, “Basic Principles”, we introduce you to the fundamental tools, techniques and principles underlying surgical endoscopy. The lectures within this module are divided into sections covering Surgical, Medical and Common considerations. This is done to emphasize that students with various backgrounds will take part in this training and allows us to start with a shared understanding of the fundamental principles, tools and practices involved. We begin with the endoscope (its variations, components and accessories) and start to explain the techniques and tricks for technical success.
We briefly explain laparoscopy, recognizing that much surgical endoscopy begins in the operating room and may involve combined approaches. We cover the common topics of pre-operative patient preparation, airway management, anesthesia and post-operative care. Finally, we create the segue to more advanced modules by introducing the principles and techniques for cautery, resection and specimen orientation.

Endoscopy - Considerations

Endoscopy and the GI surgery service

Flexible endoscopy is considered a critical part of training in general and digestive surgery in many parts of the world, in others it is less so. We discuss methods and curricula for the progressive introduction of flexible endoscopy into the practices and clinics of digestive surgeons.

Basic organisation of an endoscopic unit (diagnostic and interventional)

A critical part of adopting interventional flexible endoscopy into practice is the environment it takes place in. An inefficient endoscopy unit, a poorly coordinated team or inadequate equipment can lead to poor patient outcomes, higher costs and frustrated endoscopists.

Diagnostic Esophagogastroduodenoscopy EGD

This module will introduce the learner to the basic principle of performing esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD).

Upon completion of the module, the learner will be able to:

Performance of diagnostic EGD with modified anatomy

This module describes commonly encountered altered anatomy in the upper gastrointestinal tract as seen while performing EGD. It focuses on the proper description and documentation of post surgical anatomy so that it can be clearly related to the patient’s symptoms.

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is accepted as the gold standard screening and surveillance method for colon cancer. Lower GI endoscopy has evolved in both diagnostic and therapeutic indications, but basic colonoscopy is still the fundamental necessary skill.

The endoscopist "on call": dealing with emergency situations

Bleeding and foreign bodies are two conditions that need emergency endoscopy.

Management of endoscopy complications

Iatrogenic perforations of the GI tract are rare but can occur during diagnostic or interventional endoscopy. Early recognition, localization and evaluation of the severity of injury are mandatory to direct possible endoscopic treatment.

PEG after 30 years

Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy was first performed in 1979 and appeared first in the literature in 1980. Since that time the technique has become the standard for performance of feeding gastrostomy.

Principles of electrosurgery

An electrosurgery generator unit is a critical piece of equipment in any therapeutic endoscopy setting. Education and acquaintance with these devices are the primary avenue to the safest and most effective clinical outcomes.
