Join the ESFFU-ESOU-ESGURS Meeting in Tübingen

18 June 2013

Do you have a recently concluded study on female or functional urology? Are you specialising in reconstructive urology or interested in the controversial issues of uro-oncology? The joint meeting will be held from October 10 to 12 in Tübingen, Germany, and will gather some of the leading experts on these specialised fields.

Experts on functional and reconstructive urology and uro-oncology will gather in this university town to carefully examine current issues and find ways to further improve treatment options, particularly in surgery.

Registration and abstract submission is now open for the Joint Meeting of the EAU Section of Oncological Urology (ESOU), the EAU Section of Female and Functional Urology (ESFFU) and the EAU Section of Reconstructive Urology Surgeons (ESGURS). Abstract submission will close on July 9.

Live surgeries on uro-oncological cancers, incontinence and urethroplasty are among the specialised procedures that will be shown and discussed.

“Participants can benefit from the combined knowledge and expertise of the surgeons, lecturers and experts who will highlight their best clinical practices, and point out challenging issues encountered during surgery,” meeting organisers said.

Among the live surgeries are real-time procedures on robot-assisted cystectomy with lymph node dissection (LN) dissection, and radical prostatectomy to be led by ESOU experts. Meanwhile, specialists on functional urology will perform procedures that involved various types of male slings and female tapes such as the AMS800 sphincter procedure, Argus male sling, and retropubic and transobturator tapes for women with incontinence problems.

ESFFU, which is actively leading the joint meeting, also pointed out that participants can benefit from the multi-specialised nature of the meeting since other experts from uro-oncology and reconstructive urology can provide direct commentary on the impact of a certain procedure.

Lectures will also be featured in the scientific programme and some of the highlight topics include how to choose between neobladder or conduit, troubleshooting on procedures  such as parastomal hernia, incontinence and bladder neck sclerosus, male slings in irradiated patients, rectourethral fistulas, voiding disorders in neobladders, and neurogenic bladder and malignancies, to name a few.
