A different aspect is the role of infertility and hypogonadism as cofactor for morbidity and mortality of the male. All these topics will be addressed by key international experts and opinion leaders, separate moderators will debate important questions from the audience which are thoroughly discussed.

    The session will be completed by lectures on medical and surgical developments in the treatment of sexual dysfunction, local therapy of Peyronie’s disease and the use of robotics in andrological surgery.

    To complete this joint ESAU-EAA session, the delegates will be informed on current issues in andrology and relevant future aspects for men’s health, sexual dysfunction and infertility.
