Monday, May 21
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: MCC WEST, 2008

This course will aim to review the current level of knowledge regarding pre-operative, peri-operative and post -operative processes for perineal and/ or transrectal prostate biopsies. There is large variation and non -uniformity regarding antibiotic prophylaxis, pre-operative risk assessment, peri-operative and post operative care. This course will include discussion of the topic of antibiotic prophylaxis as this has become a major cause of concern due to increasing antibiotic resistance to quinolones. Other topics will include intraoperative biopsy technique ands post operative care. Case-based presentations will highlight the pertinent issues and allow for group discussion.
