RATIONALE

BPO is a progressive disease in which different steps can be identified and various treatments schedule. Although the treatment has been correctly performed, there is no return to normal behaviour. What are the factors leading this failure?

This course tries to answer this question providing insights in the treatment options for BPO, both medical and surgical, analysing the pathophysiological mechanisms of disease progress.

The aim of the course is to provide a basis for better judgement on the best timing for the best treatment in BPO. At the same time, the reasons why surgery sometimes may fail will be indagate.

There will also be a focus on innovative surgical techniques in treatment of BPH, which will be described through surgical videos. A careful analysis of the guidelines will make I possible to draw suggestions for implementing and improving the approach to this disease, without neglecting the patient’s satisfaction.

We applied for accreditation to UEMS-EACCME®.
