Join us for a virtual presentation on functional heartburn and reflux hypersensitivity, commonly encountered but often overlooked. This presentation will shed light on the role of these disorders in refractory GERD and how to diagnose and manage them. This program will include a 30 minute presentation followed by a case. Register for free.
Preoperative optimization is very subjective and there are variations among hospitals around the world. Watch the ISDE virtual presentation on Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) in esophagectomy and listen to an international panel of speakers covering prehabilitation and ERAS in MIE, recommendations and guidelines from the ERAS Society for esophagectomy, early feeding post esophagectomy (Nutrient Trial), and multimodal analgesia for minimally invasive esophagectomy. Two case presentations were discussed at the end and responses provided to questions from a live audience. This live presentation was recorded on June 23, 2021, moderated by Edward Cheong, Shiv Rajan and Suzanne Gisbertz.
The ISDE wishes to sincerely thank the following individuals for their contributions to this presentation:

The 11th ISDE World Congress was held in Budapest, Hungary, in September 2008. It was presided over by Professors Janos Kiss, Peter Horvath, and Zsolt Tulassay (Figure 1). The ISDE President was Prof. Peter Kahrilas (Figure 2), the first non-surgeon to be elected to the office. He established a new practice of leading the scientific program committee in designing the structure of the congress. This hands-on and collaborative approach to program development resulted in very high quality of the scientific content. Also at this time GEEMO (Groupement Européen d’Etude des Maladies de l’Oesophage) recommitted to regular scientific meetings and contributions, and Diseases of the Esophagus became its official journal. GEEMO was a close affiliate of ISDE in Europe, subsequently evolving to become the ESDE (European Society for Diseases of the Esophagus). Social highlights of the Budapest meeting included a musical performance at St. Stephen’s Basilica (Figure 3). Registrants were thrilled by being taken in a caravan of busses, with full police escort, to a beautiful rural outdoor venue, where they enjoyed a horse riding demonstration followed by dinner (Figure 4).
The 12th ISDE World Congress took place in Kagoshima, Japan, in September 2010 (Figure 5). The Congress was hosted by Professors Takashi Aikou (Figure 6), H. Tubouchi, and H. Fujita, and the ISDE President was Mark Ferguson (Figure 7). Despite the out-of-the-way location, attendance was enthusiastic and the Congress attracted a large number of well-known esophageal experts (Figure 8). The collaboration of the local organizers and the ISDE President in developing the scientific program resulted in a varied, high quality, and interesting Congress. This Congress marked the transition to ISDE management by a professional organization, International Conference Services (ICS). It also marked a shift from traditional journal publishing to electronic-only publishing for Diseases of the Esophagus. Many registrants toured a nearby island that had an active volcano and enjoyed the natural hot springs in Kagoshima. Evening entertainment was lively and audience participation was encouraged (Figure 9).

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
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
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. Read the full Quantitative fluorescence-guided perfusion assessment article for free.
We are excited to reveal the topics of the scientific program for the 17th ISDE World Congress for Esophageal Diseases!
We will be delivering 3 streams of concurrent content for up to 4 hours across each of 4 congress days. Our live stream will be scheduled to commence at different times each day. We are confident that all disciplines will find something of interest at a convenient time for at least some of the days. And if you miss any sessions, you will be able to watch them on-demand after the congress too!
View the program at a glance here and don't forget to register before the early bird deadline on June 30, 2021.

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).
