Dear Friends and Colleagues
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 17th edition of the European Meeting on Laparoscopic and Robotic Urologic Surgery . “Challenges in Laparoscopy and Robotics” has become virtual this year and the concept that initiated this adventure is quite alive and shows great potential for the future of Urology.
The comprehensive scientific program will include live laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, enriched with new technology, and performed by the world’s most prominent urologic surgeons.
In the past meetings, we have witnessed many challenging procedures. It is now time to expand our indications and to look forward to new challenges like the Retzius sparing radical prostatectomy, the Retroperitoneal Limphnode dissection and the Cava Thrombectomy.
A dedicated online platform will be available, to allow people to follow the event virtually. Indeed, the congress has evolved into a hybrid format, with some live surgeries performed on site alongside virtual contents that participants can enjoy from home, during and after the meeting.
We are enthusiastically anticipating an extremely stimulating meeting. Live and Semi Live surgery, discussions and thought-provoking debates will take place with the participation of the best urologists in the International arena. There will be two monitors transmitting different surgical procedures at the same time. All questions will be transmitted to the moderators live during the event.
This year we will have a new virtual format giving the surgeons the moderators and the audience at home the possibility to interact technical and clinical details. Moreover delegates will have the possibility to watch challenging videos on demand during and after the event.
Welcome to the first Virtual Edition of Challenges in Laparoscopy and Robotics!
