The Event video on-demand is available in our Video Library

Discover a day full of teachings, interactive discussions and live demos on utilisation of single-use endoscopes by leading medical experts and international KOLs in ERCP.


After experiencing the enormous problem of infections linked to endoscopes contamination, the world of endoscopy has begun a new fascinating journey with the intention of moving towards better infection control and increased safety of patients undergoing ERCP. This journey is based on a new biliary endoscopy model, performed with disposable instruments that guarantee a safe and effective approach, especially for those patients in which the possibility of developing a post-ERCP infection represents a dramatic event with enormous consequences in terms of morbidity and mortality.

In the 90s we have already experienced this transition from multi-use to disposable for all accessories of digestive endoscopy. And today, we all believe the use of disposable accessories is the standard of care, indispensable and irreplaceable.

We are now at the beginning of a new journey that will lead us towards a progressive replacement of our endoscopes with new dedicated, disposable instruments, designed for the needs of individual patients and to obtain the best outcome for management of complex clinical situations, such as in bilio-pancreatic diseases.

This course has been designed with the intention of offering a state of art on this topic, with multiple contributions from world-known experts and with the possibility of discussing the future of disposable endoscopy and its economic and environmental sustainability.
