|09:00-12:00||1. UDS basics revisited (Maple room 2)||Course Director : Vincent Tse (University of Sydney)
Faculty : Aram Kim (Konkuk University)
Performing good quality Urodynamics is an important part of daily practice of a urologist with an interest in LUT dysfunction. Urodynamics serves many purposes with the most common being assisting the referring urologist in confirming or excluding a diagnosis prior to definitive treatment.
This course aims to provide the delegate with the following information, with some introductory segments followed by detailed discussion on each of the three phases of Urodynamics and conclude on troubleshooting, with clinical examples.
1. Brief Overview of Commonly Used ICS Terminology , especially in regards to symptoms, and Urodynamics diagnoses
2. Indications and Anatomical-Physiological Basis Of Urodynamics
3. Caveats and Urodynamics in Special Populations
4. Urodynamic Equipment
5. The Initial Urodlowmetry
6. The Filling Cystometry
7. The Pressure-Flow Study ( Voiding Cystometry)
8. Writing a Urodynamics Report
9. Troubleshooting during Urodynamics
At the conclusion of this 3-hour workshop, the delegate should be able to gain more insightful knowledge regarding the rationale in performing Urodynamics , how to perform a good quality study in the appropriate patient and setting , according to ICS standards and terminology in reporting.
|2. Getting to know Sacral Nerve Stimulation (Maple room 3)||Course Director : Hana Yoon (Ewha Womans University)
Faculty : Su Jin Kim (Yonsei Wonju University)
Sacral nerve stimulation, also known as sacral neuromodulation (SNM) is a proven treatment option for bladder and bowel control. It is used as the next option after behavioral and drug therapy fail for OAB. The implanted neuro-stimulator and lead electrically stimulate the sacral nerve which is thought to induce normalization of neural communication between the bladder and brain.
This course aims to introduce SNS to those who have had no or minimal exposure to SNS with hands-on implantation in a model using real leads used in patients.
We will review and practice:
1) The theory and clinical results behind SNS
2) The neurovascular anatomy surrounding bladder including bony pelvis and sacrum.
3) Each participant will simulate inserting the tined lead into the sacral S3 foramen as the first step of SNS.
|3. How to setup and start your HoLEP practice (Maple room 4)||Course Director : Eun Sang Yoo (Kyungpook National University)
Faculty : Dong Gil Shin (Pusan national University)

Holmium laser enucleation of prostate, or HoLEP, has become the standard treatment modality for benign prostatic hyperplasia of any size. HoLEP is the surgical procedure that shares the same surgical principles with open surgery, therefore, is the most radical surgical method for enlarged prostate. In addition, bleeding and hospitalization is minimal, and long-term results are excellent. The effect has already been proven in numerous studies. However, there are still a significant number of issues that need to be overcome. This is why this procedure has not been wide spread to date. In this workshop, we are going to invite urologists who are planning to do HoLEP in near future, those who just started HoLEP or those who has some initial experience on HoLEP. I am confident that this workshop will give you an opportunity for sharing practical knowledge and experience regarding HoLEP.
This workshop will guide beginners and mid-level urologists to technological and knowledgeable advancement in HoLEP.
We will deliberately discuss initial surgery setting, preoperative preparation, various HoLEP methods, sphincter preservation technique, surgical tips for large prostate, tip for effective morcellation, and tips and tricks to overcome learning curve.
