Objectives and course description:
New technologies have emerged for surgical treatment of BPH aiming for more safety and less complications compared to TURP. HOLEP is currently commonly used technique for surgical treatment of BPH that allows enucleation of the prostate mimicking the traditional open approach but without its significant morbidity to the patients and more safety than TURP. Also HOLEP is of particular importance in certain situation such as patients with bleeding tendency or those who receive anticoagulant therapy. However, HOLEP needs special training and since more centres and urologists are interested in HOLEP, training programmes have become more important than before and playing an important role in learning HOLEP.
The workshop provides an interactive hands-on training of different steps and techniques of HOLEP. The attendees will be trained in achieving successful and safe enucleation of the prostate and how to avoid the complications.
Hands-on training sessions will be carried out under the guidance of experienced Urologists and local tutors who will actively guide trainees through the different training steps. Hands-on training will be carried out using 5 training modules provided by Storz and Lumenis Industrial Companies.
