048IC - Pesadillas en Endourología: 'Nightmares in Endourology' (Curso en Español)

Sunday, May 20
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: MCC WEST, 2002

This instructional course is intended to be presented in Spanish and the main objective is to review common complex situations during endourological procedures (ureteroscopy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, ureterotomy, shockwave lithotripsy, percutaneous bladder stone removal). We plan to describe those situations, the possible outcomes and the best way to prevent complications. A special emphasis in the solution of those demanding cases is expected. We propose lectures with review of the current literature and evidence, audiovisual support and open discussion with all the participants.
