South Central Section of the AUA, Inc. 98th Annual Meeting
South Central Section of the AUA, Inc. 98th Annual Meeting is organized by South Central Section of the American Urological Association (SCSAUA) and will be held from Sep 25 - 28, 2019 at The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States of America.
• Ureteroscopy is a common technique for the treatment of urinary stones. Evolution of technology in this area allows for treatment of advanced stone disease. The panel will discuss this technology and its safe use in effective manner throughout the urinary tract.
• Sling procedures are an effective means of treating stress urinary incontinence. They do have a not insignificant rate of complications which urologists must be familiar. The discussion between the panelists will highlight the occurrence and therapy for these complications.
• Prostate cancer is the most common cancer treated by urologists. Controversy exists as to optimal detection of this disease as well as best therapy for differing presentations. The panel will discuss these topics to sharpen the attendee’s knowledge of the nuances of prostate cancer detection and care.
• Prosthetic urology is being utilized by fewer urologists despite its applicability to a larger patient group. Urologists need to understand the concepts behind successful use of penile prostheses and artificial sphincters in order to care for this group. A state of the art lecture will fill in this gap.
• Laparoscopic surgery, both standard and robotic assisted, has almost become standard for treating urologic malignancies as well as a number of non-oncologic conditions. It is critical that urologists who employ these techniques be prepared to manage complications arising from their unique operative maneuvers. A state of the art lecture will address proper avoidance and management of complications of this type of surgery in urology.
• Treatment of bladder cancer, particularly in its superficial form is a mainstay in most urological practices. The dilemma for most urologists is distinguishing between those cancers that will follow an aggressive course and those with less malignant potential. This course will present concepts to address that need for the general urologist.
• Most renal tumors present as small renal masses. However as many as a third will present with vascular involvement or metastatic disease. The panel for this area will update the attendee’s knowledge of the best management for these advanced renal tumors.
• Urologists are called to consult in the trauma setting when urethral injury is suspected particularly in the setting of pelvic fractures. These injuries need to be managed expertly to maximize the patient’s recovery of urinary and sexual function. A state of the art lecturer will assist the attendee in developing an algorithm for management of these injuries even outside the trauma center setting.
• A vexing patient for many urologists is one presenting with chronic flank pain in the absence of any clear etiology such as obstruction or stones. There is a significant need for urologists to develop treatment strategies for these patients in their practices. A speaker will deliver such treatment strategies and techniques for management of these difficult patients.
• A multitude of new therapies for erectile dysfunction have been developed over the last few years. Some have been advertised directly to urologists as a potential practice adjunct. The speaker for this topic will review the current literature for this topic in an effort to assist the attendee as to the value of these methods.
• Urologists are encountering men with penile curvature and buried penis than before and optimum therapy for these conditions remains elusive for many. The speakers on these topics will emphasize both conservative therapy as well as operative measures for those desiring to incorporate more aggressive means of treatment in their practices.
• All urologists in clinical practice need a basic understanding of issues in pediatric urology. In addition, subspecialists need to be kept abreast of updated information in this field. Lectures and panel discussions on topics such as transitioning from pediatric to adult care and common pediatric situations seen by adult urologists when on call will address this need.
• Neuromodulation is a mainstay for treatment of the manifestations of both overactive and underactive bladder when medication fails. The use of these procedures is growing and urologists need to understand their proper performance and indications. A state of the art lecture will review current knowledge and future concepts in this area.
• The growing epidemic of burnout amongst urologists requires the practitioner to take active steps to prevent becoming a casualty of the phenomenon. Expert advice regarding work-life balance and practice organization will enable the attendees to formulate plans to optimize their careers.
• Ongoing changes in health policy affect essentially all urologists and their practices. These topics are rapidly changing, and up to date information is crucial for successful practice. A series of presentations will address issues in health policy to update our members on these topics.
At the conclusion of the 98th Annual Meeting of the South Central Section of the AUA, attendees will be able to:
• Explain new technology and techniques in ureteroscopic stone management to optimally treat urinary calculi.
• Review potential complications of sling surgery for stress incontinence and effectively manage problems arising from the procedures.
• Describe the newest methods enhancing prostate cancer detection and staging and be able to explain the concepts behind optimal management of metastatic disease.
• Review new and ongoing health policy decisions that will influence urologic practice and advocate for policies that help patients and practitioners.
• Describe the mechanics of prosthetic urologic surgery and determine the most suitable patients for the operations.
• Identify common factors potentially leading to complications during laparoscopic and robotic urologic surgery and apply methods for prevention and management of those problems.
• Distinguish the differences among superficial bladder cancer that might lead to the identification of potentially dangerous tumors.
• Review the management of locally advanced and metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
• Outline the management of urethral injuries associated with pelvic fractures.
• Develop practice methods for treating the patient with flank pain of uncertain origin.
• Discuss the physiology of newer methods of treating erectile dysfunction and the placement of these therapies in the therapy hierarchy.
• Discuss the management of men with penile curvature and adult buried penis efficiently utilizing best practices.
• Review common conditions and new research in pediatric urology.
• Apply current best practices in the use of neuromodulation in the genitourinary tract.
• Develop plans to build interests both in clinical activities and non-clinical topics that help avoid burnout.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
