Advancement in the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases have been remarkable in the recent years. Investigation is going on new diagnostic procedures and novel therapeutic strategies for gastresophageal reflux disease (GERD), pancreatico-biliary and post-surgical problems, Barrett’s esophagus,  neuroendocrine tumors and gastrointestinal stromal tumors. In Japan, gastric cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death.

  • Track 1-2Helicobacter pylori in clinical practice
  • Track 1-3Gastroesophageal reflux disease and Barrett
  • Track 1-4Gastrointestinal disease treatment
  • Track 1-5Inflammatory bowel disease includes crohn
  • Track 1-6Biomagnetic method to assess gastrointestinal disorders
  • Track 1-7Advances in Gastrointestinal Hepatology

Gastrointestinal cancer includes stomach cancer, esophageal cancer,  colon cancer, gallbladder cancer, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer, anal cancer, rectal cancer and transitional cell carcinoma. The most commonly used screening is colonoscopy, which helps in identifying and removing polyps in the colon and rectum. Patients can be treated with interventional endoscopy, radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, gastrointestinal cancer with surgery, targeted therapies or a combination of these.

  • Track 2-1Cancer of the esophagus and stomach
  • Track 2-2Cancers of the pancreas, small bowel and hepatobiliary tract
  • Track 2-3Colorectal cancer: Clinical diagnosis and therapy
  • Track 2-4New therapies for GI cancer

Digestive system can be disrupted by diet, disease and stress. This can be remedied with lifestyle changes, medicine or a surgery using minimally invasive techniques like laparoscopic.  Laparoscope is a fiber-optic device transmits images from within the body to a video monitor when inserted in the abdominal wall.

  • Track 3-1GI endoscopy and video capsule endoscopy
  • Track 3-2GI surgery for severe obesity- Bariatric surgery and its complications
  • Track 3-3Sphincter sparing surgery for colorectal cancer
  • Track 3-4Screening and therapeutic colonoscopy
  • Track 3-5Complex gastrointestinal surgery and its risk factors
  • Track 3-6Clinical Gastroenterology

Liver is required for many important functions in the body. It helps in food digestion, store energy and remove poisons. If liver becomes diseased or injured, the loss of those functions can cause significant damage to the body. There are different forms of liver disease that affect men, women and children. These diseases include cirrhosis, alcohol abuse, hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and (hemochromatosis).

  • 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 immune reaction of the gastrointestinal tract to the external stimulus or the failure to respond is an important aspect of the function of gastrointestinal tract system. The area of gastrointestinal disorders is currently having development in terms of research. Scientific progress in the area of gut immune system and the immune abnormalities includes the latest developments in organ transplantation of the liver and gut, HIV infection of the gut, and the recently discovered disease H. pylori gastritis.

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

Digestion of food is the crucial function of the gastrointestinal tract. Many gastrointestinal diseases have nutritional effects. The role will be on the liver in regulating the availability of carbohydrates, lipids and essential substrates to peripheral tissues. The clinical features and specific effects of malnutrition on the gastrointestinal tract and liver will be discussed along with diet therapy in gastrointestinal disease.

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

Endourology is a division of urology that deals with the closed manipulation of the urinary tract. It is conducted using instruments and small cameras and inserted into the urinary tract. Endourology is a minimally invasive technique used for treating kidney stones. Endourological procedures include Urethroscopy, Cystoscopy, Ureteroscopy and Nephroscopy.

  • 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 nervous system control on the genitourinary system and conditions such as abnormal urination. Neurological diseases and disorders can interrupt the urinary tract and result in urinary incontinence and urinary retention. Urodynamic studies play an important role in diagnosing neurourology.

Urologic oncology is the study and surgical treatment of malignant genitourinary diseases such as prostate cancer, adrenal glands cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, ureter cancer, testicular cancer, and penile cancer. The treatment of genitourinary cancer is managed using minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopy or endourology and robotic-assisted surgery.

  • 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

Pediatric Gastroenterology is a division of pediatrics and gastroenterology. In the United States, one out of five children has severe abdominal pain. Forty percent of children are significantly overweight or obese, and ten percent suffer from a failure to thrive. Pediatric urology is the study of urologic disorders in children, such as cryptorchidism, enuresis, congenital abnormalities of the genitourinary tract, underdeveloped and vesicoureteral reflux.

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

Gastrointestinal tract imaging uses a form of real-time x-ray called fluoroscopy and a barium-based contrast material to produce images of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine and other parts of digestive system.  It is safe, noninvasive and is used to help diagnose pain, acid reflux, blood in the stool and other symptoms.

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