Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Gastroenterology Volume 27, Issue 23: Endoscopy.

The goal of this program is to improve the practice of endoscopy. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Recognize which endoscopic procedures have higher risk for bleeding.
2. Differentiate between the anesthesiologist-consultant model and the anesthesiologist-employee model.
3. Diagnose submucosal lesions in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract based on endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) findings.
4. Recognize the risk factors for malignancy of submucosal lesions in the GI tract by EUS and by pathology.
5. Implement strategies for reducing the risk for endoscopic adverse events.

The original programs were presented by John J. Vargo, MD, MPH, Chair, Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, and Vice-Chair, Digestive Disease Institute of the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, Stephen A. McClave, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of Louisville School of Medicine, Louisville, KY, and Peter B. Cotton, MD, Professor of Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, Charlestown.
