Dear friends and colleagues,
Being committed endoscopists, we are all concerned that even minor
invasive procedures may have side effects which might result in a
so-called complication. The evolving advances, not only in image
quality but also in invasive or surgical concepts and in patient care,
need a permanent process of reflection.
As in the years before, the aims of the symposium are to
which we will discuss under technical, procedural, ethical, psychological
and legal aspects.
The 2017 symposium faces two major changes:
ENDO CLUB NORD meeting with live endoscopy
This means: With coming to Germany once you have the chance to
attend two complementing meetings. This is especially attractive
with our combined tickets.
Honorary president of the 5. International Symposium on
Complications in GI Endoscopy will be Prof. Dr. Friedrich
Hagenmüller. As you all know, Friedrich Hagenmüller
has an international reputation not only as an excellent
endoscopist but as a gastroenterologist with vast experience
in the whole spectrum of our field.
A highlight of our symposium will be his State of the Art
Lecture on “Interval cancers: Clinical entity or insufficient
Like in the years before we especially encourage you and your
co-workers to send in relevant abstracts.
A selected abstract will be presented as lecture in the main programme,
all others will be shown in the poster exhibition.
We invite you to join us in Hamburg for the symposium on
2 November 2017 and stay further for the ENDO CLUB NORD meeting on
3 and 4 November 2017.
Peter N. Meier
