Technology at its best

Meeting of the EAU Section of Uro-Technology (ESUT), in cooperation with the EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) and the EAU Section of Urolithiasis (EULIS)

  • Location:
    eURO Auditorium (Level 0)
  • Chair:
     E. Liatsikos, Patras (GR)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Following a more than 10-year tradition of live-surgery sessions, the EAU Section of Uro-Technology (ESUT) presents an ambitious programme focussing on novel techniques in percutaneous, endourological, laparoscopic and robotic-assisted procedures. This year, we want to focus on novel technology improving the performance of video-assisted surgery and diagnostics in all fields of Endourology. This session is conducted in collaboration with the the EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) and the EAU Section of Urolithiasis (EULIS). In the laparoscopic and robot-assisted cases, we will focus on the developments of imaging as well as new instruments and devices (laser), improving the ergonomics of laparoscopy and endourology. The latest digital developments for flexible endoscopy of the upper urinary tract for diagnosis and treatment of tumours and calculi are demonstrated.

    ESUT faculty consists of internationally well-known experts serving as surgeons and moderators. The different surgical procedures will be transmitted from Guy’s Hospital in London in high definition and 3D quality. Traditionally, the format of ESUT Live Surgery will allow all delegates to directly communicate with the surgeons to ask questions and to discuss every aspect of the procedure. Moreover, the ESUT session will be available online.
