Session

New challenges in urogenital infections and andrological urology

Joint meeting of the EAU Section of Andrological Urology (ESAU) and the EAU Section of Infections in Urology (ESIU)

  • Location:
    Room Stockholm, North Hall (Level 1)
  • Chairs:
     N. Sofikitis, Ioannina (GR)
     F.M.E. Wagenlehner, Giessen (DE)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Infections have acute and chronic sequelae. In the acute phase, antibiotic resistance is one of the major problems in patient care. The spectrum ranges from benign localised infections to life-threatening sepsis with organ dysfunction.
    In chronic infections there is a significant overlap between infections and andrological diseases, which will be addressed in this ESAU/ESIU joint meeting. In addition, selected andrological urology topics concerning the fields of erectile dysfunction and male infertility, will be discussed. Furthermore, recent news from andrology and EAU guidelines updates from urogenital infections will be presented.
