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.
This educational activity is supported by independent educational grants from:
- Cook Medical
- Olympus Corporation of the Americas
At the conclusion of the activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify the role of diagnostic testing in making the accurate diagnosis of mLUTS using the new benign BPH guidelines.
- Recognize the various agents available to treat mLUTS.
- Describe the indications for the various ablative BPH procedures.
- Illustrate the impact of current therapeutic strategies on both voiding and sexual dysfunction.
- Identify the role of the AUA guidelines for BPH for the surgical and medical management of BPH.
Faculty disclosures will be posted here prior to the start of the course.
