  • Aims and objectives of this session

    This session deals with some more acute urological traumatic issues. The first is a classic and will deal with the moment of reconstruction of posterior urethral injuries.
    The debate highlights when it is imperative to insert a suprapubic catheter in the acute phase of a pelvic fracture related urethral injury. In addition, it will discuss when suprapubic catheter is preferred above or can be considered as alternative to direct realignment. The state-of-the-art lectures deal with possible reconstruction after Fournier’s gangrene and after penile cancer.
