Meanwhile in its 5th year, we are excited to host PAAFIS 2019 at the University Medicine Mainz on the 27th and 28th of September 2019. PAAFIS is an interdisciplinary forum on foregut disease from birth to adults. It brings together surgeons, gastroenterologists, pediatricians, therapists, as well as patients and caregivers, providing a platform for comprehensive care on all aspects of the human foregut.

This year the symposium will focus on Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) and feature a hands-on endoscopic workshop on foregut endoscopy, dilatation and stent placement. There will be an opportunity to present complex cases, complications, as well as clinical and experimental studies concerning the foregut. Finally, following tradition, the PAAFIS robotic championship will be held on our robotic Simulator, in which you will have a chance to compete against your peers and colleagues.


Main Topic of PAAFIS 2019

  • Eosinophilic Esophagitis
  • Esophageal motility
  • Esophageal and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy
  • Stricture dilatation, stent placement

We are looking forward to your participation.
