Webinars

In these online education webinars, leading experts address current treatments and controversies in various urological subspecialties.

Every month, international key opinion leaders explain the latest urological 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. Both advanced urologists as urologists in training can enjoy the webinars for free via desktop, tablet or mobile phone, anytime, anywhere.

Update on robotic reconstructive surgery

Presenters:
Dr. S.C. Crivellaro (US)
Dr. G. De Naeyer (BE)
Prof. Dr. H. John (CH)
Prof. E. Kocjancic (US)
Save the date: Thursday, 28 January 2021
Time: 18:30 to 19:30 (Central European Time)
Robotic reconstructive urology is a rapidly evolving field. Robot-assisted laparoscopy allows reconstructive surgery in a minimal invasive approach in primary and re-do surgical procedures.Patients might benefit from robot-assisted laparoscopy avoiding lumbotomy, laparotomy or relaparotomies with wide intraoperative exposures, especially after complex open surgical procedures needing reconstruction.This UROwebinar focuses on ureteral reimplantation, vesico-vaginal fistula, diverticulectomy and gender-affirming surgery as examples of many established reconstructive robotic techniques in urological surgery. Esteemed experts of the EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) and EAU Section of Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgeons (ESGURS) will share vital research and their valuable insights with you in detail.

PCNL in children: Tips and tricks

Save the date: Thursday, 11 February 2021
Time: 18:30 to 19:30 (Central European Time)

Pediatric percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) requires specific training and education. Children are not just small adults and their anatomy and physiology is different than in adults. A gentle approach is necessary while performing PCNL in children. Miniaturization of the instruments has been popularized especially within the last decade. The main advantages of miniaturization are; less bleeding, less trauma to the kidney, avoiding the use of nephrostomy tube postoperatively which results in early recovery and less hospital stay. On the other hand, ‘smaller is better’ idea does not work for every size and type of stone in children. Therefore, choosing the optimal tract size with an effective fragmentation is a state of art.

In this course, step-by step pediatric PCNL videos will be presented. Optimization strategy will be discussed. Live (online) discussion will be available for the participants.

Future roles for liquid biopsies in clinical decision making in uro-oncology

Moderators
Prof. Dr. G. Jenster (NL)
Prof. Dr. K. Junker (DE)
Presenter(s)
Prof. L. Dyrskjøt (DK)
Prof. K. Pantel (DE)
Dr. K. Van Kessel (NL)
Save the date: Tuesday, 23 February 2021
Time: 18:30 to 19:30 (Central European Time)

Although molecular analysis of tumour tissues is still the standard in personalized oncology, the focus is increasingly turning to liquid biopsy. It represents the next frontier for diagnosis, management, and follow-up for solid malignancies. During this Webinar, the current status and future perspectives of liquid biopsies will be presented. Furthermore, specific topics in urological malignancies will be addressed. Here, circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) is one of the most promising markers in blood and urine from patients with bladder and prostate cancer to guide our therapy decision in the near future. In addition, the distinguished possibilities to use urine markers in urothelial cancer patients will be discussed.

Penile cancer reconstruction

Moderator(s)
Prof. D. Ralph (GB)
Presenter(s)
Dr. M. Albersen (BE)
Dr. M. Falcone (IT)
Dr.  W.G. Lee (GB)
Save the date: Thursday, 25 February 2021
Time: 18:30 to 19:30 (Central European Time)

Welcome to this webinar on penile reconstruction for cancer.

Historically, the standard treatment was partial amputation to prevent local recurrence with a resultant significant psychological morbidity. Here 3 experts will demonstrate the state of the art surgeries to either preserve most of the penis for local disease or a complete reconstruction for more advanced tumours. The techniques of glans resurfacing and glansectomy for different low stage diseases are presented and  total phallic construction via phalloplasty following a more extensive amputation.

All 3 operations demonstrate the principles of genital reconstruction with grafts and flaps to therefore generate a healthy discussion, not only on cancer management, but also on wider general reconstructive techniques.
