The BSG are proud to endorse the 2nd London International Upper GI Symposium (LUGIS), which is now live! 2021 will be virtual with interactive Zoom sessions, quizzes, and Q&As.

Learning Objectives:

1. Summarise the latest State of the art multidisciplinary approaches to the evaluation and management of patients with:

  • Dysphagia
  • Oropharyngeal disorders (ENT, neuromuscular, mechanical (pouches/cricopharyngeal spasm), functional)
  • Oesophageal disorders (strictures, EoE, motility disorders)
  • Reflux, heartburn and belching: functional vs organic causes
  • Atypical reflux/LPR (Globus, throat clearing, hoarseness, chronic cough)
  • Barrett’s oesophagus
  • Non-cardiac chest pain
  • Gastric polyps and H Pylori


2. Clarify common controversies in the diagnosis and management in certain scenarios
such as:

  • EoE (role of EndoFLIP, PPIs, diet, strict remission versus on-need therapy, etc)
  • Management of benign refractory strictures
  • Safety of long term PPI use
  • Testing and treatment pathways for patients with oropharyngeal symptoms
  • Endoscopic versus surgical management of Zenker’s, achalasia and GORD


3. Emphasise the need for multidisciplinary approaches to those patients and the role of different specialties such as: dieticians, SALT, ENT, GI Physiology, Complimentary Medicine and GI psychology, GI radiology, GI surgery
