3.1 Endoscopy Course: Gastrointestinal bleeding


Dr. J. Weigt


Maximum number of participants: 10
Duration: 1 day

Dates: on request

Course objective: Targeting a visceral bleeding may represent a challenge for endoscopists. Usually, endoscopy is the first approach in patients with an obscure blood loss from the gastrointestinal tract to identify the bellding site and ideally to achieve adequate hemostasis concurrently. Aim of this course is to train endoscopists to get prepared for such clinical situations and to train to achieve sufficient hemostasis. Recently, in vitro models on the basis of pig stomachs have proven very practical for such purposes. Accordingly, in this course not only in a theoretical

course to lecture a guidelines-recommended approach to gastrointestinal bleeding, but in particular also a practical approach in hands-on sessions on pig stomachs.

Target group: Endoscopists / endoscopic nurses


Theoretical part
• Risk stratification and staging
• Treatment guidelines: ulcer bleeding, portal hypertension, lower GI bleeding
• Conservative therapy in portal hypertension
• Technical fundamentals for endocopic hemostasis
• Material: clips, injections, sclerotherapy, ligation, APC, electrocoagulation
• Endoscopic therapy in portal hypertension
• ICU management

Practical part
Hands-on model

(Pig stomach)
