How to apply modern scientific and technological advances to the practice of clinical gastroenterology in Vietnam.
Symposium on gastroenterology and hepatology in the Asian-Pacific Region - Japanese Society of Gastroenterology JSGE General Meeting. Nagoya (JPN), 1995/11/23.
There are some differences between the spectrum of gastroenterological diseases in Vietnam compared with those of more developed countries.
These may be due to different living standards, quality of nutrition, and different infection rates of intestinal parasites and hepatotropic viruses.
Gastric carcinoma and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are leading malignancies, while colorectal cancer is less frequent.
Bile duct stones often have Ascaris eggs in the centre, and they prevail in incidence over gall-bladder stones.
The majority of digestive cancers are detected at a very late stage.
The Vietnamese Association of Gastroenterology aims to contribute to the development of modern gastroenterology (GE) in Vietnam, to study and apply recent advances in imaging technology, such as fibre-optic diagnostic and therapeutical endoscopy, ultrasonography, laparoscopic surgery etc. and to do further work in molecular biology.
For this purpose, besides our self-reliance, we need, and ask for, support and assistance from the Japanese Society of GE (JSGE), the Asian Pacific Association of GE (APAGE) and the Organisation Mondiale de GE (OMEGE).
At the same time, we suggest a choice be made among the different technologies, bearing in mind their cost-effectiveness, and to give preference to measures for the primary prevention and early detection of the diseases. (...)
