Plenary Session 04

  • Location:
    Room Copenhagen, North Hall (Level 1)
  • Chairs:
     C.R. Chapple, Sheffield (GB)
     P. Radziszewski, Warsaw (PL)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    The clinical scene for benign prostatic enlargement diagnosis and treatment is changing rapidly. The old pardigms regarding who should get drugs and who should be operated are no longer valid. During the session participants will be updated with modern patophysiological concepts of BPE. This will be followed by a debate on urodynamics and a vigorous case discussion on dillemsa related to treatment choice accordingly to the prostate size. New emerging techniques will be discussed and the session will be concluded with drug management of LUTS and BPE as well as with unresolved diagnostic and therapeutic problems. The session aims not only to deliver the new knowledge, but also to stimulate discussion.

    During this session participants are expected to learn about BPE patophysiology, diagnostics, pharmacological and surgical treatment. The session should stimulate exchange of experience and growth of new ideas.
