ESU Lasers 2014

1st ESU Masterclass on Lasers in Urology

The European School of Urology (ESU) in collaboration with the EAU Section of Uro-Technology (ESUT) will organise the 1st ESU Masterclass on Lasers in Urology from 30-31 October in Barcelona, Spain.

“With advances in laser technology, there are new devices that offer alternative treatment options in managing lower and upper tract diseases.  Urologists need to have expertise on these new laser-based therapies,” the ESU said.

A comprehensive course on the whole range of laser technologies and their clinical applications in urology, the masterclass will be supported by leading manufacturers  and  developers of laser products.

The two-day course will feature expert lectures on laser treatments including identifying the patients who can benefit from laser treatment, tips and tricks for optimum results and the management of commonly encountered complications, among others.

The use of contemporary laser systems such as the Holmium laser, the 532-nm lasers, KTP-80W, HPS-120W and XPS-180, Diode laser and the Thulium: Yttrium- Aluminium-Garnet laser will be examined and the various techniques described. Participants will not only master the basic concepts of each laser treatment, but the indications, limits and benefits compared with gold standard approaches will be thoroughly discussed to shed insights on optimal treatment strategies.

To benefit optimally from this masterclass we offer the participants an online preparatory course. This course will be available online as of August 15 and applicants will be automatically notified.

We look forward to meeting you in Barcelona.
