Course description:
The course is intended as an interactive session. In the first half all the presentations will be made while the second half will be structured as an interactive session with real case presentations and discussion of the possible treatment options. At the end, the participants should be able to recognize all the major complications of the artificial urinary sphincters procedures (AUS, Flowsecure, Urethral constrictor, ProACT), and all the sling procedures available worldwide. The treatment after a previous incontinence surgery will be discussed as well the management of very severe incontinence in multiply operated patients.

Learning objectives:
1. To get familiar with the newer minimally invasive surgical options for the management of post-prostatectomy incontinence.
2. To learn how to manage a complicated patient with PPI
3. To learn the tricks of the trade and trouble-shoot for AUS in PPI
4. To learn the about the successes and complications associated with various surgical procedures for PPI.

Course description:
Urethral strictures play an important role in reconstructive urology. The importance of this problem is great, especially regarding all the potential complications not only in the functional, but also in the psychosocial and psychosexual aspects. All of these details make this field interesting-we are always in search of new and better solutions for the treatment of urethral strictures. The long-term follow up of these patients enables the best estimation of the achieved surgical results. Analysis of new surgical techniques, comparison of results with the results from different medical centers around the world, as well as the compilation of surveys related to overall patient satisfaction can lead to a conclusion which could point toward the improvement of the results in the treatment of this anomaly.

Course description:
Delineate key concepts in management of the entire spectrum of urothelial carcinoma (UC) and “tricks-of-the-trade” essential to the medical and surgical management of this disease. Emphasis will be placed on contemporary review of scientific literature and provide insight into the multi-disciplinary approach to UC.

Learning objectives:
1. In management of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, a risk-adapted approach will be reviewed, including a discussion on role of restaging TUR, first and second line intravesical chemotherapy and immunotherapy, BCG failure, etc.
2. In management of muscle invasive bladder cancer, we will discuss role of radical cystectomy, extent of lymphadenectomy, eligibility for continent diversions, neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy, bladder preservation strategies
3. In management of upper tract UC, we will discuss indications and outcome from endoscopic and percutaneous resection, nephroureterectomy, upper tract instillations, as well as role of perioperative chemotherapy

0730-0800Drainage After PCNL: Percutaneous, Internal, None
 Glenn Preminger, USA

Course description:
Recent studies have indicated a renaissance in renal stone treatment surgery during the last decade, which can be attributed to several factors. These include awareness of the limitations of shock wave lithotripsie with accumulating clinical experience of this approach. Moreover, improvements in the endourological procedure, which continue, have led to reductions in morbidity and yielded stone-free rates over 90 percent in treated patients. Several key factors have been identified that impact treatment outcomes and complication rates with PCNL, including indications for treatment, renal access, and available equipment. With the introduction of the latest generation flexible ureteroscopes, retrograde intrarenal surgery has been highly facilitated.

Learning objectives:
1. Tailoring renal access in PCNL to the specific physical conditions
2. Indication and outcome of renal stone treatment with PCNL and Retrograde Intrarenal surgery.
3. Postoperative care addressing the type and need of drainage
