Short bowel syndrome (SBS)-associated intestinal failure is a highly disabling condition that impairs quality of life and social integration will be discussed in Gastroenterology conferences. Although the condition is not uniformly fatal, it might lead to serious, life-threatening complications. The basic goals of medical treatment are reflux to maintain electrolyte, fluid, and nutrient balances and to make modifications in disease management in order to avoid side effects. Various definitions have been proposed for SBS and intestinal failure within the medical literature, but many focus on different aspects of the conditions, leading to confusion. In the past, identifying the cause of intestinal failure was of little consequence, because all patients were managed on total parenteral nutrition at home.

Surgeons are continuing to improve their techniques for operating on colorectal cancers. They now have a better understanding of what makes colorectal surgery more likely to be successful, such as making sure enough lymph nodes are removed during the operation. Laparoscopic surgery is done through several small incisions in the abdomen instead of one large one, and it's becoming more widely used for some colon cancers.

  • Track 2-4New therapies for GI cancer

Capsule Endoscopy lets your doctor examine the lining of the middle part of your gastrointestinal tract, which includes the three portions of the small intestine (duodenum, jejunum, ileum). Your doctor will give you a pill sized video camera for you to swallow. This camera has its own light source and takes pictures of your small intestine as it passes through. These pictures are sent to a small recording device you have to wear on your body. Capsule endoscopy helps your doctor evaluate the small intestine. This part of the bowel cannot be reached by traditional upper endoscopy or by colonoscopy. The most common reason for doing capsule endoscopy is to search for a cause of bleeding from the small intestine. It may also be useful for detecting polyps, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease), ulcers, and tumors of the small intestine.

  • Track 3-1GI endoscopy and video capsule endoscopy
  • Track 3-2GI surgery for severe obesity- Bariatric surgery and its complications

You can get alcoholic liver disease from drinking lots of alcohol. It can even show up after a short period of heavy drinking. Genes that are passed down from your parents may also play a role in ALD. They can affect the chances that you become an alcoholic. And they can also have an impact on the way your body breaks down the alcohol you drink. Other things that may affect your chance of getting ALD are:- Hepatitis C (which can lead to inflammation in your liver) Too much iron in your body and Being obese. Gastroenterology conferences this infection of the liver is caused by the hepatitis C virus. 

  • Track 4-1Alcoholic liver disease and fatty liver disease
  • Track 4-2Hepatitis C-state of the art treatment and emerging drugs
  • Track 4-3Hepatitis B-natural history and treatment
  • Track 4-4Hepatocellular carcinoma
  • Track 4-5Liver transplantation

The gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) plays dual roles in human physiology: digestion and uptake of nutrients and the more daunting task of maintaining immune homeostasis (protecting the body from potentially harmful microbes, while inducing tolerogenic responses to innocuous food, commensals and self-antigens). The unique architecture of the GI tract and Viral hepatitis facilitates both of these functions; multiple levels of infolding results in an immense overall surface area that allows maximal nutrient absorption while housing the largest number of immune cells in the body.

  • Track 5-1Overview of gut immunology
  • Track 5-2Gastrointestinal microbiota and its role in health and disease
  • Track 5-3Intestinal Surgery

Nutrition is important in the management of gastrointestinal disease because the job of the intestinal track is to digest and absorb nutrients. The therapeutic approach to most gastrointestinal problems involves a combination of medication and nutritional therapy. Gastrointestinal disease can be broadly characterized as acute and chronic. Acute gastrointestinal conditions are most commonly caused by dietary indiscretion or the exacerbation of chronic gastrointestinal disease. 

  • Track 6-1Dietary treatment of gastrointestinal diseases
  • Track 6-2Prebiotics, probiotics, and dietary fiber in gastrointestinal disease
  • Track 6-3Food allergies

Flexible Ureterorenoscopy (FURS) is a preferred treatment for small stones within the kidney using a very thin flexible telescope that can be passed up from the female urethra or end of penis in a man, into the bladder and up the ureter (tube connecting the kidney to the bladder. With advancement in technology, improvement in endoscope and ancillary equipment, more complex procedures can be performed using flexible ureterorenoscopy. Advanced laparoscopic surgery involves surgery that is minimally invasive, using advanced surgical technologies to assist in surgery, providing the most desired patient outcome.

  • Track 7-1Minimally invasive surgery - Flexible ureterorenoscopy
  • Track 7-2Robotic and advanced laparoscopic urologic surgery
  • Track 7-3Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) and Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL)
  • Track 7-4Ureteropyeloscopy and laser lithotripsy

Neurourology is the study of how the nervous system affects the urinary system. The brain, spinal cord and nerves are very important to the healthy function of the bladder. Neurological diseases and disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, stroke and spinal cord injury can disrupt the lower urinary tract and result in conditions such as urinary incontinence and the inability to urinate. Birth conditions such as spina bifida also cause neurological dysfunction of bladder control.

Renal cell cancer (also called kidney cancer or renal adenocarcinoma) is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells are found in the lining of tubules (very small tubes) in the kidney. There are 2 kidneys, one on each side of the backbone, above the waist. Tiny tubules in the kidneys filter and clean the blood. They take out waste products and make urine. The urine passes from each kidney through a long tube called a ureter into the bladder. The bladder holds the urine until it passes through the urethra and leaves the body.

  • Track 9-1Prostate cancer complications and advances in medical treatment
  • Track 9-2Renal cell cancer
  • Track 9-3Urothelial cancer of the bladder and upper tract
  • Track 9-4Testicular cancer and penile cancer

Hypospadias (hi-poe-SPAY-dee-us) is a condition in which the opening of the urethra is on the underside of the penis, instead of at the tip. The urethra is the tube through which urine drains from your bladder and exits your body. You may feel distressed if your son is born with hypospadias. However, hypospadias is common and doesn't cause difficulty in caring for your infant.

  • Track 10-1Hypospadias and urolithiasis
  • Track 10-2Bladder control problems- Bedwetting and daytime urinary incontinence
  • Track 10-3Male female genital reconstruction

Imaging of the gastrointestinal tract is very useful for research and clinical studies of patients with symptoms arising from the gastrointestinal tract and in visualising anatomy and pathology. Traditional radiological techniques played a leading role in such studies for a long time.

  • Track 11-1Trans abdominal ultrasound on gastrointestinal tract imaging
  • Track 11-2Endoscopic ultrasound in upper gastrointestinal tract imaging

An investor could be able to ascertain the highest potential investment opportunities ecumenically, which will provide ideal return on investment. For entrepreneurs, this would be an great place to ascertain felicitous investors and partners to commence and/or expand their business.

Gastroenterology nurses provide care for patients with gastrointestinal diseases of the stomach, oesophagus or bowel. Conditions treated may include ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer and abdominal injuries. Gastroenterology nurses may work in a variety of settings such as hospitals, outpatient or inpatient endoscopy suites or doctor’s offices. These specialized nurses may do any number of tasks including taking patient medical histories, telephone triage, patient education and maintenance on tools used for procedures.

Gastroenterology nurse’s mainly focuses on caring for patients as they undergo an endoscopy or colonoscopy. These nurses assess and prepare patients for their procedure. Registered nurses in this capacity might be responsible for administering medication before the treatment, and must monitor a patient’s vital signs while the physician performs the endoscopy or colonoscopy.
