4th EUS-ERCP connection – the ‘EURCP’ concept
Direttori del Corso: Claudio G. De Angelis, Thierry Ponchon
We are delighted to have you to the fourth edition of our International Live Course EUS-ERCP connection: The “EURCP” concept. The first edition was held in 2012 and the course was only a national one, but it attracted more than 60 Participants. In 2014, the Course shifted towards an International one and we collected more than 150 enthusiastic Participants.
In 2016, the third edition was a very successful and international one with more than 180 Participants. Since our first meeting it has been our goal to highlight the most updated developments in EUS and ERCP and their combined use summed up in the new concept of EURCP which includes a whole world of new ideas and ways to approach the biliopancreatic pathology from both a diagnostic and therapeutic point of view. All this together with the new diagnostic and therapeutic ancillary techniques and newly developed devices, such as peroral cholangioscopy and pancreatoscopy, intraductal ultrasound and confocal endomicroscopy, the new LAMS and, we hope, the new EURCP (ERCP-FNA) prototype scope.
Participants will be able to see live demonstration of high quality established EUS+/-FNA and ERCP techniques and at the same time will have a fantastic view into the most recent advancements in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic management of patients with biliopancreatic diseases. All the procedures will be performed by our fantastic guests and local Faculty.
The theoretical part of the Conference will again be held in the Molinette Hospital as in 2014 in Turin, with a varied and comprehensive program of lectures, discussions and video presentations by experts from different countries in addition to a Symposium for Nurses on Saturday,17 November. The official language of the Course will be English. The Congress venue in Molinette Hospital is located a short distance from the City center for combining work with pleasure (shopping, museums and other artistic venues, high quality restaurants). Turin (Italy) is a beautiful city with many fascinating historical monuments, excellent food and drink, and a lively cultural atmosphere.
It is an honor and a pleasure to see you to the 4th edition of the Turin EUS-ERCP connection, International live Course. The entire local faculty, pathologists and anesthesiologists team, fellows and nursing team and the Organizing Secretariat Area Qualità are pleased to welcome you all to Turin and wish you a fascinating and enjoyable stay.
