Originally Aired Jan 30: Eosinophilic esophagitis, outbreaks associated with duodenoscopy, and the rise of private endoscopy clinics
Samir and Amol want you to understand the following:
1. Eosinophilic esophagitis is an important and under-recognized clinical condition that causes significant symptoms and is very treatable.
2. Endoscopy, and particularly duodenoscopy, is an important potential source of infection transmission.
3. The rise of outpatient endoscopy clinics requires the development of an appropriate remuneration, regulatory, and governance infrastructure.
