Seven plenary sessions were carried out under the main subject of “New diagnostic and treatment technolo-gies”. Here were reviewed perspectives in diagnosis and treatment of GERD, new endoscopic methods in diagno-sis and treatment of premalignant gastric lesions and gastric cancer, the efficacy of vedolizumab therapy in in patients with IBD, the evolution in approaches to diagnosis and treatment of lactase insufficiency. Eighteen reports were dedicated to new guidelines for diagnosis and treat-ment of gastroenterological disease, prepared with taking in account the recent published international recom-mendations (Kyoto Global Consensus Report of on H. pylori gastritis, Rome IV criteria for functional gastrointes-tinal diseases (FGID), Maastricht-V Consensus Report). There was a dis-cussion on new clinical recommenda-tions of RGA for diagnosis and treat-ment of GERD (Trukhmanov A.S.), functional dyspepsia (Sheptulin A.A.), IBS (Poluektova E.A.), sphincter of Oddi disorders (Schulpekova Ju.O.). Eminent foreign participants gave very interesting reports: D. Graham (USA) presented main statements of Maastricht-V Consensus Report and stressed the importance of H. pylori infection eradication in prevention of gastric cancer. T. Vanuytsel (Belgium) assessed the role of gastrointestinal motility disorders given in Rome IV criteria of FGID. J.E. Domingues (Spain) provided the new internation-al guidelines for treatment of chronic pancreatitis. There was a presentation by L. Ricciardiello (Italy), Chair of National Societies Committee for United European Gastroenterology (UEG), on a variety of learning and knowledge sharing opportunities for gastroenterologists in UEG.

A special meeting of the “Gastroen-terology” Profile Board at the MHRF was held within the framework of the 22nd URGW. The gastroenterologist-in- chief of the MHRF and President of RGA V. Ivashkin stressed that the main attention in the work of the Profile Board was paid to the solv-ing of the task given by MHRF and aimed at the decrease of morbidity and mortality from gastroenterologi-cal diseases. The participants of the meeting discussed the major causes of mortality from gastroenterological diseases (decompensated liver diseases particularly connected with alcohol intake, upper gastrointestinal bleed-ing including those associated with NSAIDs, destructive forms of acute pancreatitis, gastrointestinal malig-nancies) and preventive measures for decrease of mortality. The participants of URGW assessed the scientific level of presented reports as very high and expressed confidence that such scientific events play a very important role in their continuing medical education.
