ERUS 2015 in Bilbao: Now accepting abstracts on robotic urology

Wed, 6 May 2015

The annual meeting of the EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) will take place in Bilbao on 15-17 September, 2015. The meeting will feature six live surgery sessions, hands-on training and ESU courses and a special Junior ERUS - Young Academic Urologists programme.

Prof. Alex Mottrie, ERUS Chairman: “As the ERUS audience is evolving from mostly beginners in the field to robotic users as a majority, this year’s edition focuses more on complex cases and novel indications for robotic surgery as well as live surgery. We will also have roundtable discussions on novel tools and techniques as well as up-to-date results, both oncological and functional.”

A selection of topics at ERUS15:

  • Robotic urologic surgery in Europe. What’s happening in each country and why?
  • Robotic surgery and guidelines: Where is the evidence?
  • Neuronavigation in RARP
  • Fluorescence guided robotic surgery
  • Robotic prostatectomy – Why train surgeons to do a surgery they won’t or shouldn’t do?
  • Lessons learned from open radical cystectomy
  • Robot-assisted LESS inguinal lymphadenectomy
  • Please check the meeting website for the most up-to-date and complete scientific programme!

Live Surgery:

Prof. Mottrie: “Live surgery has traditionally been an important part of ERUS meetings. Over the past few years, we have been approved by the EAU Live Surgery Committee to ensure the highest standards of care. At the beginning of each ERUS meeting, we give an overview of how the patients at the last meeting fared over the past year.”

“This year, if the appropriate patients are available, we want to show special indications like salvage prostatectomy, renal transplantation, and retroperitoneal prostatectomy.”

Send your abstracts now!

Prof. Mottrie: “You will be joining the largest robotic congress in urology worldwide, with close to 1,000 attendants. In three days, you will get an extensive, detailed update on urological robotics from with live surgery, state-of-the-art lectures, round table discussions, ESU Courses and Hands-on Training Courses.”

“You will also have ample opportunity to meet your colleagues from around the world in an informal setting. Bilbao is a splendid city with lots of things to visit, including the famous Guggenheim museum.”

You have until June 1st, 2015 to submit your abstracts!
