Live surgery at conferences - Clinical benefits and ethical dilemmas.

Live surgical broadcasts (LSBs) are becoming increasingly popular in urological conferences. These activities can provide excellent training opportunities, as they allow the audience to view an operation conducted by world-renowned surgeons, and have the ability to interact with them in real time. However, several ethical considerations have been raised with this practice, which the participating surgeons and conference organisers must appreciate and address carefully. In this article we highlight the ethic...

The accuracy of three-dimensional bladder ultrasonography in determining the residual urinary volume compared with conventional catheterisation.

To determine the accuracy of three-dimensional bladder ultrasonography (US, using the BVI 3000, Verathon, WA, USA) for determining the residual urinary volume, compared with the conventional catheterisation method.

Tuesday 14th June 1250

Factors determining the amount of residual urine in men with bladder outlet obstruction: Could it be a predictor for bladder contractility?

To determine from urodynamic data what causes an increased postvoid residual urine volume (PVR) in men with bladder outlet obstruction (BOO), urethral resistance or bladder failure, and to determine how to predict bladder contractility from the PVR.

Monday 13th June 1250

Single-step renal dilatation in percutaneous nephrolithotomy: A prospective randomised study.

To perform an economical single-step renal dilatation (RD) during percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), using directly a 30-F Amplatz dilator over the central Alken dilator, in a trial to reduce the operative duration and radiation exposure during RD while avoiding an exchange of dilators that might increase the risk of blood loss.

Sunday 12th June 1250

'Minimum-incision' endoscopically assisted transvesical prostatectomy: Surgical technique and early outcomes.

To describe the surgical technique and report the early outcomes of a 'minimum-incision' endoscopically assisted transvesical prostatectomy (MEATP) for managing benign prostatic obstruction secondary to a large (>80 g) prostate.

The assessment of sexual dysfunction in Egyptian women with lower urinary tract symptoms.

Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) has been reported in 46% of women with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).
