    As part of our ISDE 40th Anniversary celebration, you’ll read in upcoming months about each of the ISDE Congresses. This article summarizes the 9th and 10th ISDE World Congresses.

    The 9th ISDE World Congress was held in Madrid, Spain, in May 2004 (Figure 1). It was presided over by Prof. Enrique Moreno-Gonzalez (Figure 2), and the ISDE President was Prof. Toni Lerut. The venue was the Doce de Octubre University Hospital (Figure 3). Thirty-four countries were represented among a total of 756 registrants, and 480 papers or posters were presented. Just prior to this meeting a new ISDE constitution was adopted that codified the society’s commitment to represent all specialties interested in esophageal disease and called for balanced specialty representation in both committee and society leadership. At this time the ISDE also elected to change the frequency of its meetings from triennial to biennial.

    The 10th ISDE World Congress took place in Adelaide, Australia, in February 2006. In the interim between congresses, the ISDE Secretariat moved from Tokyo to Los Angeles, California, under the auspices of Executive Director Prof. Tom DeMeester. This was ISDE’s first congress under its new governance structure and the first biennial meeting. In keeping with the new governance, the Congress was hosted by Prof. Glyn Jamieson (a surgeon; Figure 4) and Prof. John Dent (a gastroenterologist; Figure 5). The ISDE President was Prof. Andre Duranceau. In addition to an outstanding scientific program, the social events were very attractive (Figure 6), and many registrants toured the nearby wine country (Figure 7). The timing of the Congress coincided with the Adelaide Fringe festival, an eclectic and entertaining event that took place in multiple different venues across the city (Figure 8).

    Optimal selection of endoscopic resection in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: endoscopic mucosal resection versus endoscopic submucosal dissection according to lesion size

    DOTE Volume 34, Issue 5 | Editor's Choice

    Free Article

    The detection of superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SESCC) has substantially improved with the routine use of narrow band imaging and chromoendoscopy with iodine staining.1,2 When esophageal squamous cell carcinomas are confined to the mucosal epithelium or the lamina propria (cT1a-EP or LPM), SESCC is only rarely associated with lymph node metastasis. Therefore, curative resection can be achieved via endoscopy without the need for additional treatments. Read the full Optimal selection of endoscopic resection article for free.

    Quantitative fluorescence-guided perfusion assessment of the gastric conduit to predict anastomotic complications after esophagectomy

    DOTE Volume 34, Issue 5 | Editor's Choice

    Free Article

    Treatment of esophageal cancer is based on a multidisciplinary strategy, in which surgery remains the cornerstone for treatment with curative intent. After esophagectomy for esophageal cancer, continuity can be restored by connecting the proximal esophagus to a gastric conduit. For the construction and pull-up of the gastric conduit for anastomosis, ligation of some of its supplying vessels is necessary.

    The Chicago Classification categorizes esophageal motility disorders in high resolution manometry tests depicted with color pressure topography plots. Applying standardized HRM metrics to categorize esophageal motility disorders such as achalasia, EGJ outflow obstruction and hypercontractile esophagus, is the primary objective of this hierarchical classification scheme.

    The ISDE (International Society for Diseases of the Esophagus) hosted a virtual presentation on the changing definitions of esophageal disorders covering what’s new in Chicago Classification #4 including new diagnosis and manometry testing of esophageal motor disorders, and refractory GERD. This live presentation was recorded on May 13, 2021, and moderated by Ronnie Fass, Metro Health Medical Center (USA).

    What's New in Chicago Classification 4

    The Changing Definition of Refractory GERD

    As part of our ISDE 40th Anniversary celebration, you’ll read in upcoming months about each of the ISDE Congresses. This article summarizes the 7th and 8th ISDE World Congresses.

    The 7th ISDE World Congress was held in Montreal, Canada, in September 1998 (Figure 1). It was presided over by Prof. Andre Duranceau (Figure 2), who was to become ISDE President and Editor of Diseases of the Esophagus in future years. The organizing committee included Drs. Mulder, Beauchamp, Boivin, Mayrand, Colas, and Langevin. Special lectures were delivered by a number of world-renowned experts including F.G. Pearson, N.W. Diamant, D.O. Castell, J. Dent, S.J. Spechler, and D. Liebermann-Meffert. Thirty-nice countries were represented among a total of 538 registrants. The program focused on benign esophageal disease, including the broad topics of idiopathic reflux, Barrett’s, motor disorderes, esophageal cancer, and quality of life (Figure 3). A number of ISDE members were treated to a tour of Prof. Duranceau’s “cabane a sucre” (sugar cabin), a small wood structure nestled within a forest of maple trees, where he and his family distilled maple syrup that was among the finest quality in the world.

    The 8th ISDE World Congress took place in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in September 2001. This was ISDE’s first foray into the Southern Hemisphere and its first congress in the new millennium (Figure 4). The Congress President was Prof Henrique Pinotti (Figure 5), and the ISDE President was Tom DeMeester (Figure 6). Prof. Pinotti detailed in his presidential address the extent of benign esophageal diseases in South America, including Chagas’ disease (20 million affected), schistosomiasis affecting 3 million in Brazil with a frequent consequence of esophageal varices, and 25% of the population experiencing GERD. Over 600 abstracts were submitted from 33 different countries. The Congress was very well attended, having a large contingent of Japanese registrants as well as numerous physicians from South America, particularly the host country, Brazil (Figure 7). The latter country contributed nearly 200 presentations including oral abstracts, posters, and videos.
