  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Flexible ureteroscopy is fast becoming the treatment of choice for renal urolithisasis but until now the procedure has been held back by the fragility of the flexible ureteroscopes with high replacement and repair costs. Few urologists have yet been able to join the video-ureteroscopy revolution and enjoy the benefits of improved upper tract visualisation for stone and tumour procedures.

    Imagine a world in which you had a brand new flexible video ureteroscopes for every case. With no instrument wear and tear, no unexpected damage during reprocessing and the same flexibility and agility to reach difficult anatomy every time. If your laser fibre breaks and you cause a working channel perforation you can still treat the next patient with a brand new scope. With the additional benefit of no down time between patients for instruments to be disinfected.

    Our panel of expert endourologists introduce you to their experiences with LithoVue, the world’s first single use, sterile packed video flexible ureteroscope and explain how the paradigm shift in flexible ureteroscopy benefits their patients and their practice.
