Duration Approx. 60 minutes

Intraoperative suction has been introduced as a tool to remove fragments during the endourological procedures such as percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS). Suction has been successfully employed in PCNL and RIRS, offering multiple advantages in stone fragmentation, dusting, debris and fragment removal, intrarenal temperature and pressure reduction, as well as enhanced visualisation.

As the landscape of urological interventions continues to evolve, the implementation of suction might become more beneficial and complementary to both PCNL and RIRS.

In this e-course, the participants will understand the application of intrarenal pressure and suction, as well as the current evidence regarding their usage.
