  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Clinical Practice Guidelines represent an important tool for making clinical decisions based on evidence. When enough research data are available, the guidelines should promptly incorporate and disseminate these updated evidences for the awareness of the health and social care professionals, to support their decision for the best care of the patient.
    The faculty of experts involved in this symposium will review the available and latest clinical evidences on intravesical instillations with glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in patients with different forms of cystitis and will discuss their inclusion in the Clinical Practice Guidelines, as a recommended therapeutic option.
