Live from AUA2022: Highlights in BPH

Live from AUA2022: Highlights in BPH is a panel discussion filmed immediately following the 2022 AUA Annual Meeting!

This activity is designed to increase the urologist’s understanding of how to translate the latest scientific advances into their routine clinical practice, improving the care of patients with BPH. Faculty will review, discuss, and develop coherent diagnostic and treatment strategies for men with mLUTS utilizing the 2021 AUA BPH Guideline. Medical therapy, both mono and combination therapy, as well as surgical management will be reviewed. With the advancement of multiple new minimally invasive surgical options, urologists need to be cognizant of how these new therapies align with the current guideline.
