About this event
In recent years, the principles of open simple prostatectomy have been successfully transferred to laparoscopic and robot-assisted approaches, with the advantage of allowing faster recovery and reduced blood loss. Despite these advantages, most patients require continuous bladder irrigation in the postoperative period and will have ejaculatory dysfunction as a result of the removal of the prostatic urethra. The robot-assisted or laparoscopic simple prostatectomy with prostatic urethra preservation is the solution to overcome and solve these complications related to traditional surgical techniques and even transurethral endoscopic enucleations.
The purpose of this webinar is to teach the different steps of simple prostatectomy with preservation of the urethra with the visualization of two semi live surgeries performed by very experienced surgeons. In addition, webinar attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the cases, learn the best indications, tricks and tips for the best success in applying the surgical technique.
The course is intended for urologists wishing to extend their knowledge concerning robotic or laparoscopic simple prostatectomy with prostatic urethra preservation and improving their practical skills.
- Describe the current role and possible indications of simple prostatectomy with prostatic urethra preservation
