Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

Firstly, I would like to thank the ESGE Scientific Committee that has helped to deliver an amazing programme for ESGE Days 2021.

On their behalf, I would like to also honour all researchers - both within and outside Europe - who have submitted their abstracts. We truly appreciate your contribution to our annual congress and the advancement of endoscopy research.

We received a total of 783 abstracts of very high quality, from 53 different countries, leading us to accept over 230 of them to present orally. This high volume and high standard confirm that ESGE Days 2021 is the perfect forum at which to present your best research.

With the Covid-19 pandemic still putting a halt to all in-person events, ESGE Days 2021 is taking place in a virtual form. It is an imperative part of our commitment to our members that, despite all the challenges we face due to the pandemic, our community stays ahead of the continual surge of advances in gastrointestinal endoscopy so we can make the best decisions for the care of our patients. We want to ensure that our annual meeting remains one of the premier educational events for health professionals and scientists who practice, or conduct research, in the field of digestive diseases.

I hope that you find this online supplement of Endoscopy, containing all the abstracts accepted for ESGE Days 2021, informative and educational. To all of you who have submitted their research to the meeting, we are excited to learn from you this year, and your participation will help expand the data exchange that is critical to improving patient care worldwide.

Thank you for contributing to making ESGE Days 2021 one of the top European digestive diseases meetings that it has become today!

Best wishes,

Mário Dinis-Ribeiro
ESGE President and ESGE Days 2021 Scientific Committee Chairman
