  • Aims and objectives of this session

    The European School of Urology (ESU) and the EAU Section of Female and Functional Urology (ESFFU) offer a practical hands-on training course with female pelvic models focusing on the placement of slings for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence. The delegates will be taken through a step-by-step programme of surgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence with retropubic, transobturator, and single-incision slings. The programme will begin with a discussion of patient selection and relevant clinical data. Videos demonstrating the different techniques will be presented, and afterwards the delegates will be instructed in small teams on the pelvic trainers. Finally, all remaining questions can be answered and discussed with the tutors, including the demonstration of tips and tricks.
