Watch Session Highlights on Neurogastroenterology & Motility at DDW® 2017

July 3, 2017

Whether you missed or want to re-watch the best science and cutting-edge research in neurogastroenterology and GI motility, top session highlights are now available.

Want to catch up on AGA sessions from Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2017? Satish S.C. Rao, MD, PhD, AGAF (chair), and John Wiley, MD (vice chair), of the AGA Institute Council Neurogastroenterology & Motility Section compiled higlights from three of their top sessions in Chicago last month.

In addition to the descriptions below, you can use DDW On Demand to view non-ticketed sessions from the AGA section programming folio. This session capture product was included free of charge for DDW 2017 attendees (online access); non-attendees are able to purchase the recordings.

Josephine and Michael Camilleri, MD, Lecture — Motility Matters 2017: An Interactive Forum to Debate What Progress the Field Has Made in the Treatment of GI Motility Disorders: An interactive debate forum moderated by Drs. Satish S.C. Rao, John E. Pandolfino, and Nicholas J. Talley, featuring three sets of panelists who are internationally recognized experts, each discussing diagnostic and therapeutic advances in esophageal, gastric and colorectal disorders, while actively engaging the audience. 

Food Intolerance, Medicinal Foods, Diet Fads, and the Role of Nutritionists in Gas, Bloating and IBS: This hot topic clinical symposium featured international experts critically examining the role of FODMAP diet in improving FBD, the role of breath testing in diagnosing carbohydrate malabsorption, which could cause symptoms of FBD and discussing the role of the nutritionist in the evaluation and management of patients with FBD. 

Neurogastroenterology and Motility Distinguished Abstract Plenary: Highly rated abstracts in the Neurogastroenterology and Motility Section were presented during this research forum and described the latest advances in basic, translational and clinical science that have future implications in novel treatments for functional GI and motility disorders. Abstracts included a controlled trial of fecal microbial transplantation in IBS, optogenetic activation of enteric neurons to modulate gastrointestinal motility, and treatment with a histamine 1 antagonist can normalize sensitized neuronal pathways and improve symptoms in IBS. Importantly, Dr. Raj Goyal received the 2017 AGA Neurogastroenterology and Motility Section Research Mentor Award during this session.
