Advancements in Digestive Disease Treatment

The complexity and magnitude of medical advances in the management of digestive diseases make it ever more challenging for clinicians to apply this tremendous amount of information to their practice.

This activity will provide learners with a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the art advances in the diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive modalities of digestive diseases based on the latest evidence, literature, and clinical research.

New Advances gives clinicians a superb update on cutting-edge developments in gastroenterology and hepatology. Interact directly with our clinical faculty and learn about practical approaches to problems.

Treatment Advances in Digestive Diseases

Colonoscopy

Capsule Endoscopy

Sigmoidoscopy

Enteroscopy

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

The cancers of the gastrointestinal tract and accessory organs which show the symptoms of internal bleeding, acute pains, swelling, inability to digest, difficulty in swallowing or chronic constipation or acute diarrhea.

Gastrointestinal cancers are categorized into 2 types- upper gastrointestinal cancers and lower gastrointestinal tract cancers. Diagnosis requires endoscopy followed by biopsy, if there is a suspicion or a cyst. Upper digestive tract cancers include cancers of Esophagus, Stomach, Pancreas, liver, Gall bladder, and MALT.

Lower digestive tract cancers include colorectal cancer, anal cancer, large and small intestine cancers, retroperitoneum and carcinoid tumor. Cancers of pancreas, gall bladder and liver are lethal with prolonged hepatitis and liver cancer being the second most common cancers with pancreatic cancer being the 5th common and gastric cancer being the 4th common cancer that claims lives.

Liver transplantation or hepatic transplantation is the usurping of an infested liver with a few or much of a solid liver from someone else. The most ordinarily utilized scheme is Orthotopic transplantation, in which the native liver is evacuated and supplanted by the giver organ in an indistinguishable anatomic area from the original liver. Liver transplantation is a practical treatment alternative for end-stage liver disease and intense liver failure. Regularly three specialists and two anesthesiologists are included, with up to four supporting medical caretakers.

The surgical technique is so demanding and extends from 4 to 18 hours depending upon result. Various anastomoses and sutures, and numerous separations and reconnections of stomach and liver tissue, must be made for the transplant to succeed, requiring an eligible recipient and a well-calibrated live or cadaveric donor match.

There are many kinds of liver diseases:

Diseases caused by viruses, such as:

HEPATITIS A, HEPATITIS B, AND HEPATITIS C

Diseases caused by drugs, poisons, or too much alcohol. Examples include:

Fatty liver disease and Cirrhosis

Liver cancer

Inherited Diseases

Hemochromatosis

Wilson disease

Microbiome is a term that describes the genome of all the microorganisms, symbiotic and pathogenic, living in and on all vertebrates. The gut microbiome is encompassed of the collective genome of microbes inhabiting the gut including bacteria, archaea, viruses, and fungi.

Human gastrointestinal microbiota, also recognized as gut flora or gut microbiota, are the microorganisms (commonly bacteria and archaea), that live in the digestive tracts of humans. Many non-human animals, counting insects, are hosts to numerous microorganisms that exist in the gastrointestinal tract as well.

Studies and statistical analyses have identified the different bacterial genera in gut microbiota and their associations with nutrient intake. Gut microflora is mainly composed of three enterotypes:

Prevotella

Bacteroides

Ruminococcus
