Around the Prostate, Niguarda Hospital, November 21st-22nd, 2019
The treatments for Prostate cancer and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia are quickly evolving. Nowadays, robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy is the gold standard of the surgical treatments for prostate cancer. Improving the understanding of prostatic surgical anatomy, it brought towards better functional results. Several robotic approaches were born in the last years: the standard anterior, the Retzius-sparing, the trans-perineal one. During the course, the advantages and disadvantages of each approach will be showed and discussed in live and semi-live surgery by the top surgeons of the world.
Also in the case of benign hyperplasia, surgery has completely been renewed by the evolution of technology: lasers, mono- and bipolar energies and different approaches to adenoma resection or enucleation have reduced complications improving outcomes. A special attention will be given to Prostatic Arteries Embolization, showing the peculiarities of prostatic vascularization. Finally, imaging modalities and medical treatments concerning both benign hyperplasia and advanced prostate cancer are changing and the dogmas that have been established in the last 30 years are evolving. Expert panels will make the point of the current knowledge on these topics.
Around the prostate will give you a 360° vision of the most important treatments for prostate cancer and BPH.
