Dear Member of the European Society for Paediatric Urology
A warm Welcome to the 12th GURS-Masterclass!
Based on last year’s amazing feedback, we will keep the educational format principally the same with emphasis on Live Surgery covering urethroplasty techniques, genital reconstruction and prosthetic surgery for urinary incontinence and erectile failure, genital reconstruction and major open reconstructive surgical techniques showing (if possible) bowel segment utilisation for urinary tract reconstruction with omental flap interposition.
We will continue the well received and highly constructive dialogue with our Paediatric GURS colleagues, this year focusing on the embryology of Urogenital Sinus/Cloaca, discuss the metabolic and carcinogenic risks of exstrophy and epispadias surgery and the long-term outcome of cystoplasty.
Moving into the Future of GURS, I’m very pleased to be able to hosts two New GURS-Sessions! In our 1st Robotic-GURS session, Expert Robotic GURS-Surgeons will debate this fast-evolving field of Reconstructive Urological Surgery and will demonstrate to the audience what can be done during semi-live video presentations.
In our exiting 1st Regenerative-GURS Session, we will hear about the fast development of Stem Cell Therapies from the laboratory of Universities, to pragmatic clinical application studies, and to the latest commercially available Regenerative Cell procurement systems. We will share our humble translational clinical research efforts with the audience but will be stunned to hear the latest news of cutting-edge Regenerative Medicine and Research by Anthony Atala!
The networking Canapé reception on the first evening will provide an opportunity to catch up with old friends or find new ones in our growing GURS-Masterclass community who come together once a year in the 1st week of November!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Boston Scientific very much for their ongoing support. Without their generous educational grant, the GURS Masterclass simply couldn’t happen.
Looking forward to seeing you in London in November!
Daniela Andrich MD MSc FRCS, Course Organiser
