  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Intravesical instillation of glycosaminoglycans is a practice that is finding positive results among the medical community for the treatment of various urologic disorders as it supports the regeneration of the damaged urothelial layer.
    Ialuril®, a combination of high concentration hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate, resulted effective in such conditions as to become an option in the urologist armamentarium.
    This symposium faculty will discuss the causes and mechanisms in these pathological situations and will review the available treatments with a focus on Ialuril® clinical experiences.
