Location:Room 21 (ICM, Level 2)
Clinicians involved in the care of female patients should know vaginal surgery. A specific goal of the faculty is to employ scientific principles, published information and clinical experience to describe and position newly developed techniques in current management of urinary incontinence. Special attention will be given to new techniques that use synthetics tapes in SUI surgery. This course will also cover the management of complications of surgery for stress incontinence and mesh complications. Treatment of recurrent urinary incontinence and incontinence with mixed symptoms also will be under discussion.
Management of vesicovaginal fistulas, urethral diverticulae and some rare conditions will be shown both during podium and video presentations. An interactive course means active participation by the audience and participants are encouraged to prepare and present interesting and challenging clinical cases for consultation by the faculty. After this course, participants should know how to apply the newest technique in patients with stress incontinence, urethral loss and iatrogenic injuries of lower urinary tract. This course will facilitate the decision making process for those who are just starting their careers and for advanced surgeons.
