2015 Freston Conference: A Look at Session Three — Motility and Sensory Abnormalities

April 28, 2015

We continue our preview of the 2015 James W. Freston Conference, which focuses on IBS.

Over the last few weeks we’ve previewed sessions one and two of the 2015 James W. Freston Conference: A Renaissance in the Understanding and Management of IBS, which will take place Aug. 29 and 30, 2015. Here we’ll take a look at session three.

Motility and Sensory Abnormalities in the Colon and Pelvis
Session three will provide a more in-depth understanding of the role motor function and stimuli play in diagnosing and treating IBS. Satish Rao, MD, PhD, AGAF, kicks things off by examining how physiological tests have provided mechanistic insights into the pathophysiology of colonic dysmotility in IBS and constipation that facilitates management of symptoms.

Guy Boeckxstaens, MD, PhD, will then examine the mechanisms of visceral hypersensitivity.

Finally, Frank Tu, MD, MPH, will close out the session by examining the mechanisms of overlapping pelvic pain disorders. Dr. Tu will review experimental and clinical evidence for modifiable cross-sensitization of pelvic organ sensory innervation as well as highlight candidate mechanisms underlying this observation.

Stay tuned to gastro.org for details on session four. View the program in its entirety and register at www.gastro.org/frestonibs.
