Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP)

In this surgical webinar Ben Challacombe, Guy’s Hospital & King’s College London, UK, demonstrates the Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP) method for a patient with hypertrophic prostate and severe lower urinary tract symptoms. To introduce the webinar, Challacombe provides an overview of the setup and technical equipment required, before going on to demonstrate the full procedure and describe the techniques used. He shares tips and tricks for how to address heavy bleeding, what level of laser power to use, and how to position the laser, and describes common mistakes in the technique and how to avoid them. This is a must-watch for urologists and trainee urologists wishing to expand their knowledge of this challenging but rewarding procedure.

  • Beyond PSA: Utility of a Urine Gene Expression May 27 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Prof. Alexander Kretschmer
    Prostate cancer is a leading cause of cancer in men, affecting more than 1 million men in the world and resulting in 300,000 deaths annually. Most guidelines now support shared decision making around the question of prostate cancer early detection—but how exactly to do this remains controversial.

    The conversations can be confusing, especially during a time when appointments and procedures have been canceled and COVID-19 has upended our normal way of practicing, leaving both patients and physicians scrambling for answers. PSA remains the gold standard as a first-line screening test, but is limited in terms of specificity, especially among older men. We now have available new, non-invasive biomarkers which can help men decide whether to proceed with biopsy, in order to find high-grade, potentially lethal tumors early while minimizing over diagnosis of low-grade, indolent tumors.

    Webinar Objectives:
    • Understand the basics of exosomes and exosome-based diagnostic tools;
    • Learn why an exosome-based liquid-biomarker approach offers an ideal platform for the early risk assessment of high-grade prostate cancer;
    • Compare the performance of various biomarkers and how they fit into clinical practice;
    • Determine which patients would most benefit from the ExoDx Prostate (EPI) test as risk assessment tool.
  • Diclofenac in a New and Innovative Form: Low Dosages and Small Volume May 20 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dr. Jonathan Sackier
    Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. Unfortunately, it is a symptom associated with many clinical situations of different nature and its management is even today a complex issue. In this scenario, NSAIDs have always been a milestone in the treatment of pain, even if they have evolved little in recent years.

    In this webinar Dr. Jonathan Sackier is joined by Dr. Alia Darweish Medniuk and Dr. Juraj Kacian as they discuss the importance of the NSAID diclofenac for the management of pain in different settings/clinical situations. They will also highlight what’s new for diclofenac, namely the development of new formulations at small volume and low dosages, in line with the EMA recommendations on NSAIDs and CV risk
