E-course: Benign Prostatic Obstruction (BPO): Are we prolonging too much medical therapy instead of moving more quickly to the new minimally invasive surgical techniques (MIST)?

In the last few years, several minimally invasive surgical treatments (MIST) for benign prostatic obstruction (BPO) have been proposed. Some of these treatments, due to their good safety profile, could represent an alternative not only to traditional surgical procedures but also to pharmacological therapies.
