Tuesday’s ninth annual ASGE World Cup of Endoscopy features 10 of the best endoscopic videos from around the globe. After surviving a rigorous review process to make it to DDW®, the videos will be scored by a panel of international judges to see which three will take home gold, silver and bronze medals for their respective countries.
“The World Cup of Endoscopy is a friendly international competition that highlights how people from around the world approach particular problems related to endoscopy,” said ASGE Educational Products Committee Chair Gerard Isenberg, MD, chief
medical quality officer at the Digestive Health Institute at University Hospitals, Cleveland, OH.
The World Cup of Endoscopy — not to be confused with ASGE’s two-part Video Plenary Session Tuesday morning — is designed as a light-hearted session, Dr. Isenberg said. During the competition, presenters from 10 countries will showcase a video that
highlights an innovative or new technique, a new approach to a particular problem, or use of an endoscopic accessory to achieve a desirable outcome.
“The video presenters often come on stage in a costume that represents their country,” Dr. Isenberg said. “The audience gets very involved. In the past, people have started singing a country’s national anthem or participated in boisterous shouting in support of a presentation.”
At the end of each video presentation, the judges score the presentation based on a combination of factors, including the presenter’s costume, the video itself and how novel or interesting the presentation was. The score is displayed so the audience can track each country’s rank.
“I encourage attendees to stop by because this international competition really brings out a lot of different flavors of how people approach endoscopy around the world,” Dr. Isenberg said. “You might see something that’s done in China, for example, that’s completely different from how it’s done in the Western world.”
This year’s World Cup competition features videos from Brazil, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, Spain and the U.S. Attendees can also cheer the competition’s first female emcee, Ashley L. Faulx, MD, of University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center.
