The European School of Urology is introducing a new online educational tool, UROwebinars. Both advanced urologists as urologists in training can enjoy the webinars for free via desktop, tablet or mobile phone from all over the world.
A 30-minute webinar will be organised every month, addressing current treatments and controversies in various fields within urology. Leading experts from all over the world explain the latest developments in a concise presentation and give ample opportunities to interact and pose questions. All webinars will be recorded and can be reviewed at a later stage.
Lymph node imaging and management in penile cancer
Presenter: Prof. Oliver Hakenberg
This webinar is focused on the critical role of adequate and timely lymph node management in penile cancer patients. While local recurrence after organ-sparing penile surgery does not significantly compromise cancer-specific survival (CSS) in penile cancer, lymph node recurrence does and it reduces 5-year CSS to under 40%.
In clinically normal inguinal lymph nodes, a significant number of patients will have micrometastatic lymph node disease. The identification of these patients, based on risk factors derived from local stage and grade of the primary tumour is difficult. All available imaging modalities have limitations. Invasive lymph node staging sentinel node diagnosis or limited lymphadenectomy also has limitations and carries some morbidity.
In clinically lymph node positive disease, patient survival can only be achieved by multimodal treatment: usually a combination of lymph node surgery and chemotherapy. This webinar looks at the diagnostic methods and the treatment options that are available and their use in patient management.
Join us for the webinar on Apr 20, 2017 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM CET.
Vesicoureteral reflux: to treat or not to treat?
Presenter: Prof. Guy Bogaert
Vesicoureteral reflux is a challenging subject. As urologists or paediatric urologists, we have learned to perfectly correct the vesicoureteral reflux, but we are still unsure who would benefit from a treatment and when. Does antibiotic prophylaxis protect a child from a febrile UTI or from renal scarring? Do we investigate a child after a febrile UTI, bottom up or top down? Who should we inject and how? Who would benefit from surgery?
All this and more challenging point and counterpoints will be discussed to help the parents of your patient to make together the right choice of treatment.
Join us for the webinar on May 18, 2017 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM CET.
