Instructional Course - Requires Course Pass or Individual Course Ticket, Additional Registration Required
This course, which has been offered at the AUA Annual Meeting for many years, provides a comprehensive, case-based approach to the assessment and management of all types of urologic injury, while focusing on trauma due to external violence (as opposed to iatrogenic injury). The course has been updated over the past two years to increase the emphasis on evidenced-based management decisions, applicability of the AUA Guidelines, and the inclusion of both civilian and military trauma. The course is highly valuable to both our domestic and international attendees, as we demonstrate diagnostic and treatment approaches that are relevant in both the technology-replete, as well as austere care environments. The faculty provide a wealth of experience and clinical judgment in both straightforward and highly complex cases of urologic injury. Emphasis on the critical elements of related reconstructive surgery techniques are provided with case-based illustrations. The optimal working relationships between the urologist, the trauma surgeon, and other surgical specialists, are addressed.
