Challenges in reconstructive urology

Thematic Session 16

  • Location:
    Room 14c (ICM, Level 1)
  • Chair:
     M-O. Grimm, Jena (DE)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    In this session frequently encountered clinical situations in reconstructive urology are addressed. These include urethral fistula repair, treatment of anastomotic strictures, ureteral reconstruction and continent urinary diversion with particular respect for female neobladder. The state-of-the-art lectures review current literature and provide technical tips even for experienced surgeons. Finally, the role of robotic surgery with regard to reconstruction is critically reviewed.

State-of-the-art lecture Management of urethral complications of prostate cancer treatment
 M. Fisch, Hamburg (DE)
Aims and objectives of this presentation

Complications of prostate cancer treatment affecting the urethra are: Stenosis at the anastomosis after radical prostatectomy, urethral strictures and recto-urethral fistula. Diagnostic tools and treatment options are presented.

State-of-the-art lecture Avoiding complications in female neobladder and continent urinary diversion
 B. Ali-El-Dein, Mansoura (EG)
Aims and objectives of this presentation

To describe the prophylactic steps and technical modifications of the female cystectomy and orthotopic neobladder to prevent or minimize the incidence of 2 main functional (chronic retention and incontinence) and 1 surgical (pouch-vaginal fistula)complication.
