Hands-on Training preliminary

Hands-on Training sessions



After the positive feedback received from hands-on training attendees last June 2018, hands-on training sessions will be again organized on the occasion of the 37th GEEW, on Sunday, June 16th, 2019 in the afternoon at the Brussels Exhibition Centre, Auditorium 2000. 

4 hands-on training stations will be available: 2 dedicated to ERCP, 1 to EUS-FNA and 1 to EUS cyst drainage. Each station can accommodate up to 8 participants.

2 sessions with 4 different training stations are scheduled

  • Session 1: from 14:00 to 15:30
  • Session 2: from 16:00 to 17:30

Registrations will be limited and are only available for those already registered to 37th GEEW. Participants may register to 1 or 2 sessions.

Registration fee per session: 50 Euros

  • Are you a practicing gastrointestinal endoscopist with experience in diagnostic EUS? Are you looking to advance your understanding of current practices and standards? If so, you don’t want to miss the 37th GEEW.
  • Have you incorporated ERCP into your practice, or have you considered adding it? Do you want to attain a more detailed understanding of current ERCP practices and standards? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, hands-on at 37th GEEW is the ideal course for you!

Our course is intended for practicing gastroenterologists and for fellows in training with varying levels of training and experience. Our aim is to offer a focused and deliberate endoscopy practice in order to supply the attendees with practical skills to use, required core competencies and specific feedback, variable particularly important in the clinical practice. Therefore it is our pleasure and honor to welcome you to this hands-on endoscopy course with the support of Roeya Training Center.


ERCP: This workshop will feature tutored hands-on training of therapeutic ERCP procedures, including biliary and pancreatic cannulation, stenting, stone extraction, etc. These procedures will be performed on the Cook’s state-of-the-art ERCP Trainer model, using real endoscopes and accessories. Thus participants can enhance their skills on basic cannulation, stricture management and stone management. We believe through this activity participants will gain further understanding of the fundamental procedures in therapeutic ERCP.

EUS-FNA: The trainees will be able to attain the learning outcomes of understanding the EUS anatomy as well as the skillful manipulation of the scopes to acquire the desired images.

EUS cyst drainage: EUS-guided drainage of cyst has become more feasible with the advent of LAMSs. The procedure will be done on biological simulators containing multiple cysts. The trainees will be able to understand the EUS guided drainage of a cyst followed by insertion of stents if needed.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of the course the trainees will be able to:


  • How ERCP has evolved from a diagnostic procedure to a primarily high-impact therapeutic intervention
  • The latest and best techniques for cannulation, sphincterotomy, stone extraction, and management of strictures and leaks
  • How to choose from the new diagnostic and therapeutic devices, then apply them with expertise
  • Preventing and mitigating adverse outcomes by identifying risk factors for complications before they happen, and treat them proficiently if they do occur
  • Learn to use today’s digital fluoroscopy features skillfully.

2. EUS FNA and cyst drainage:

  • Prepare the patient, staff, and endosonographer
  • Differentiate the various types of solid and cystic pancreatic tumors and treatment with ablative therapies
  • Evaluate the techniques and role of EUS-guided bile and pancreatic duct access with gastrojejunostomy
  • Recognize and avoid adverse events.

Sessions are organised and supervised by Dr Nouran ROSHDY from the Roeya Training Center in Cairo, together with Dr Mostafa IBRAHIM and local experts.
