5th EUS-ERCP connection – the “EURCP” concept
Direttore del Corso: Claudio G. De Angelis
We are delighted to invite you to the fifth edition of our International EGEUS 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 and 2018, the third and fourth editions were also very successful and international with more than 200 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, intra- and extra-ductal ultrasound (IDUS and EDUS), the probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE) and the new LAMS.
Participants will be able to follow a lot of live demonstrations about high quality established EUS+/-FNA and ERCP techniques and at the same time will have a fantastic view into the most recent advances 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 beautiful setting of the Lingotto Congress Center in Turin, as in the 2016 edition, with a varied and comprehensive program of lectures, discussions and video presentations by experts from different countries. Some very particular topics possibly will open new insight in the field of biliopancreatic diseases. The official language of the Course will be English. The Congress venue in the Lingotto congress center 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 invite you to participate to the 5th edition of the Turin EUS-ERCP connection, International EGEUS live Course, 2020. 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. We hope to see you all in Turin.
