Track 1: Gastroenterology
Gastroenterology is the study of the normal function and illnesses of the throat, stomach, small digestive tract, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile channels, and liver. It includes a point by point study of the normal action (physiology) of the gastrointestinal organs including the movement of material through the stomach and digestive system (motility), the assimilation and retention of supplements into the body, expulsion of waste from the system, and the capacity of the liver as a digestive organ.
Track 2: Gastrointestinal Disorders
Sickness happens when the primary anomaly is the way the body works. In the specialist's office, no basic or biochemical reason is seen. Gastrointestinal motility is characterized by the developments of the stomach related framework, and the travel of the substance inside it. Useful GI and motility issue, by and large, can't be analyzed generally. No incendiary, irresistible, or auxiliary anomaly can be seen by normally utilized examination, x-beam, or research center test. Diseases happen when nerves or muscles in any segment of the stomach related tract don't work in a planned manner, or when the affectability of the nerves of the digestion tracts or the route in which the cerebrum controls some of these capacities is hindered.
- Peptic ulcer diseases
- Stress-related mucosal diseases
- Esophagogastric varices
- Haematochezia and melena
Gastrointestinal bleeding is one of the basic grievances of the patients which could be endless, mellow or deadly. The greater part of the circumstances, GI bleeding is contained without anyone else's input, yet they are however assessed to maintain a strategic distance from a repeat and to stay away from the advance movement of disease, assuming any. Upper GI endoscopy is the initial step with a GI drain if the outcome discounts any upper GI dying, at that point a colonoscopy is performed to find out that the draining is in the lower GI tract. Upper GI drain is typically caused because of peptic ulcers, gastritis, oesophageal varices, upper GI malignancies or irritation of the GI. While the regular reason for seep in the lower GI tract is diverticulosis, colon malignancies or colon polyps, IBD, hemorrhoids, or butt-centric crevices. Indications incorporate stomach torment, shortness of breath, fair skin, or going out.

- Imaging and checking
- Hematological tests
Track 4: Gastrointestinal Pharmacology
Medications used to treat depression, anxiety, and seizures have become increasingly attractive agents for use in functional gastrointestinal disorders because they act upon the central and peripheral nervous system to modulate mood, visceral, and neuropathic pain, as well as autonomic function, in part, through anticholinergic effects. The gastrointestinal sicknesses require treatment and the pharmacological treatments are partitioned into two classes the physician recommended drugs and Over the Counter (OTC Drugs). The treatments are prescribed in view of gastrointestinal tract issue, gastrointestinal tract dividers issue, gastrointestinal motility issue.

Track 5: Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is an idiopathic disease caused by a dysregulated resistant reaction to having intestinal microflora. The two major types of Inflammatory Bowel Disease are ulcerative colitis (UC), which is restricted to the colonic mucosa, and Crohn diseases (CD), which can influence any system of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the butt, includes "skip sores," and is transmural. There is a hereditary inclination for IBD, and patients with this condition are more inclined to the development of malignancy.
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Crohn’s Disease
Track 6: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
Gastrointestinal endoscopy is a technique that enables your specialist to take a gander at within covering of your throat your stomach and the initial segment of your small digestive tract. A thin, adaptable review apparatus called an endoscope (scope) is utilized. The tip of the extension is embedded through your mouth and after that tenderly moved down your throat into the throat, stomach, and duodenum (upper gastrointestinal tract). In patients with OGIB, upper and lower GI tract endoscopies regularly are rehashed before little gut assessment because significant starting endoscopic miss rates have been accounted for.

- Demonstrative endoscopy
- Restorative endoscopy
- Colonoscopy and Sigmoidoscopy
- Endoscopic methods
- Advances in Endoscopy
Gastroenterology Surgery deals significantly with the stomach and gastrointestinal tract. A general specialist manages focal center of life structures, immunology, concentrated care, digestion, neoplasia, nourishment, pathology, physiology, stun and revival, and wound recuperating. Technologically advanced minimally invasive surgery, which can include robotic-assisted techniques, requires incisions just millimeters in length. The small incisions create a passageway for special surgical instruments and a fiber-optic instrument called a laparoscope, which is inserted into the abdominal wall. The device transmits images from within the body to a video monitor, allowing the surgeon to see the operative area on the screen. Advantages of the minimally invasive approach can include quicker recovery times, shorter hospital stays and reduced blood loss during surgery.
- Bariatric Surgery
- Colorectal surgery
- Laparoscopic surgery
Track 8: Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that influences the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach corrosive regularly streams once more into the tube containing your mouth and stomach (esophagus). This backwash (acid reflux) can irritate the lining of your esophagus.
- Hiatal hernia
- Acid Reflux
- Barrett’s esophagus
Track 9: Equipments used in Gastroenterology
Medicinal equipments are intended to help in the diagnosis, checking or treatment of medical conditions that influence part or all of an organism not caused by outside damage (injury) and that comprises of a disorder of a structure or function, usually serving as an evolutionary disadvantage. They are altogether required for complete and compelling management of a gastroenterogic office or clinic. Some of these equipments must be sterilized before utilizing since they act as vehicles for infection transmission.

Track 10: Digestive and Liver Diseases
Digestive diseases are disorders of the digestive tract, which is sometimes called the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Indigestion, food, and drink are separated into little parts (called nutrients) that the body can ingest and use as vitality and building hinder for cells. The stomach related tract is comprised of the throat (nourishment tube), stomach, expansive and small digestive organs, liver, pancreas, and the gallbladder. liver plays an essential part in many bodily function from protein production and blood coagulating to cholesterol, glucose (sugar), and iron metabolism. A common type of liver malady is viral disease. Viral hepatitides, for example, Hepatitis B infection and Hepatitis C infection can be vertically transmitted amid birth by means of contact with infected blood.

Track 11: Hepatology
Hepatology is a branch of medicine concerned with the investigation, anticipation, analysis, and administration of infections that influence the liver, gallbladder, biliary tree and pancreas. Hepatitis influences a huge number of people internationally and is related to a few poor results including the liver transplant and liver disease. Specifically, hepatitis B and hepatitis C are significant reasons for liver growth, while liquor mishandle has been connected to conditions, for example, cirrhosis and different genuine inconveniences. The conditions hepatologists manage most much of the time are viral hepatitis and liquor-related liver disease.
- Treatment of Liver Diseases
- Liver Pathology
Track 12: Liver Cancer
Liver cancer is the condition which occurs when normal cells in the liver become abnormal in appearance and destructive to the adjacent normal tissues, which can spread to other areas of liver or to the other organs outside of the liver. Cancer cells are characterized by the procurement of several capacities amid the stages of tumorigenesis, maintenance of proliferation signaling, induction of angiogenesis, activation of invasive resistance to cell death, inhibition of growth suppressors, and metastatic pathways, ability to evade immunological destruction and alteration of cellular metabolism.
- Liver cell carcinoma
- Hepatocellular carcinoma
- Kupffer cell sarcoma
- Other sarcomas of liver
Track 13: Hepatitis
Hepatitis occurs due to the inflammation in tissues of the liver caused due to the viral infection which can harm the organ which may further lead to cirrhosis, fibrosis and liver cancer. Hepatitis is a devastating that progress slowly but results in damage to the liver. Hepatitis A is the most common cause’s acute hepatitis in children in the Middle East. Establishment of HBV vaccination to cover all neonates and high-risk group, screening of donor blood can help in improving the case. Recent advancement in the treating hepatitis built on incremental improvements can transform it to new forthcoming treatments that can be potentially cured.
- Autoimmune hepatitis
- Alcoholic hepatitis
- Viral Hepatitis
Track 14: Liver Inflammation and Immunology
Liver inflammation is a response that happens when liver cells are assaulted by a sickness bringing on microorganism or substance. The word hepatitis alludes to liver inflammation. Most types of hepatitis result from viral disease, even though now and again it is brought on by an immune system issue, in which the body's safe framework assaults liver cells since it can't differentiate between unsafe trespassers and solid liver tissue. Harm to the liver from liquor, toxins, and certain medications can likewise bring about inflammation. Liver Immunology implies the special connection between the liver and the immune system. Livers hose down immunity to such a degree, to the point that they can be transplanted without dismissal sometimes. Livers may be endured, as well as keep the dismissal of other organ unites from a similar benefactor, a procedure known as immune tolerance.

Track 15: Liver Transplantation and Surgery
Liver transplant is an operation that replaces a replaces a person’s diseased heart with a partial or a whole liver from a donor. A rare condition in newborn infants is Biliary atresia in which the common bile ducts, which carry bile out of liver and present between the liver and small intestine is absent or blocked. Bariatric surgery performed on people, who have obesity through a variety of procedures. Removing a tissue sample (biopsy) from the liver may help diagnose liver disease. Liver biopsy is done using a long needle inserted through the skin to extract a tissue sample and then analyzed in a laboratory. Currently, liver transplantation remains as the best treatment methodology for early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma in patients with decompensated cirrhosis, giving patients the chance to be free from the conceivably deadly complexities from both growth and their progressed hidden liver infection.

Track 16: Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Disease
Hepato-pancreato-biliary disease refers to any condition that affects the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and the bile ducts. These diseases commonly share some tell-tale signs or symptoms, such as jaundice, darker urine color, and lighter stool color. While some have genetic or hereditary causes, most are due to chronic damage to the tissues of the organs involved. These conditions are treated and managed by hepatologists, hepato-pancreato-biliary oncologists, and transplant specialists.
Track 17: Pancreatic Tumor and Cancer
Pancreatic cancer begins when abnormal cells within the pancreas grow out of control and forms a tumour. There are two types of cells in the pancreas, the exocrine cells and endocrine cells. These cells also have different functions. About 94% of pancreatic cancers are classified as exocrine tumors. The tumors start in the exocrine cells that make pancreatic enzymes which help in digestion. Within this category, most tumours are adenocarcinomas. Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors account for about 6% of all pancreatic tumors. They may be benign or malignant and they tend to grow slower than exocrine tumors. Pancreatic cancer can also spread to nearby lymph nodes (part of the immune system), blood vessels or nerves. Cancer cells may travel through the bloodstream to other parts of the body, such as the liver. Treatment for pancreatic cancer may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of these.

Track 18: Gut Microbiome
The gut microbiome is made up of billions of bacteria and other microorganisms that co-exist with other human cells in the lower intestine. Gut microbiota helps with digestion, metabolism, immune function and brain health. Our gut microbiome begins to develop in very early life and is influenced by genetics, delivery method, age, stress, illness, environment, medication use, and diet. The ‘balance’ of our gut can be disrupted by several factors, and this can promote inflammation – a potent risk factor for physical and mental disorders.
- Host Protection and Immune-system Development
- The Gut–Brain Axis
Track 19: Neurogastroenterology and Motility
Normal contractions of the gut (called peristalsis) move food down the intestinal tract from the oral cavity to the rectum and facilitate absorption of nutrients. These peristaltic contractions occur when the muscle layers of the gut and the nerves embedded in them work together in a synchronized manner. Motility disorders of the gut can occur in association with abnormalities in other organ systems such as the central nervous system, mitochondrial disorders, muscular dystrophies and others. Neurogastroenterology helps in the comprehension of the elements of the parasympathetic, thoughtful, and enteric divisions of the gastrointestinal tract. Neurons are available on each surface of our body. It is because of these neurons that we feel and can do of the deliberate and automatic activities. So also, neurons are likewise found on the gastrointestinal surfaces. It is because of these neurons that we can swallow the nourishment, and which is then taken to the distinctive organs for their working, which thus is again organized by the cerebrum.
- Parasympathetic division
- Gastrointestinal Motility
- Thoughtful division
- Enteric division
- Peristaltic reflex
Nutrition is imperative in the administration of gastrointestinal ailment since the activity of the intestinal tract is to process and ingest supplements. The nutritious way to deal with overseeing intense versus constant gastrointestinal conditions is diverse which will be found in Process of Gastro. Nourishment practices may add to manifestations of blockage, looseness of the bowels, swelling, gas, and stomach torment. Probiotics are microorganisms that provide health benefits when consumed. The term probiotic is currently used to name ingested microorganisms associated with benefits for humans and animals. Probiotics have many advantages such as reducing gastrointestinal discomfort, improving immune health and in relieving constipation. Dietary enzymes and Single-cell proteins can be used as supplements.
