Webinar: Surgical & Medical Management of Stones Guidelines Update: A Case-Based Approach (2020)

May 26, 2020

To utilize a case-based and interactive approach to highlight key components of the current AUA Guidelines for the Medical and Surgical Management of Kidney Stones. The course will additionally provide updated literature and topics in the management of stone disease which may impact future Guideline statements. During this course, representative basic and complex clinical cases/vignettes will be discussed with the use of data from the comprehensive guidelines to demonstrate critical points. Use of the audience response system and Q/A between cases amongst the faculty and audience members will be critical to the success of the course. Important aspects regarding metabolic evaluation, medical management, preoperative evaluation, imaging techniques, and surgical treatment recommendations (as well as surgical approaches and complications) in adult, pediatric, pregnant, and complex patients will be illustrated. The faculty will also reference the Guideline Statements that provide the framework for their decision-making process.
