  • Location:
    Room 17, Capital suite (level 3)
  • Chair:
     J-U. Stolzenburg, Leipzig (DE)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    This course addresses comprehensively important anatomical considerations for open and minimally invasive radical prostatectomy and partial nephrectomy. Key technical aspects such access, port placement, robotic docking and each step of the procedures will be discussed. Additionally interfascial amd intrafascial of nerve-sparing surgery will be discussed. In partial nephrectomy the focus is on pedicle control, tumour excision, how to achieve adequate haemostasis and how to shorten ischemia time.
