Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Urology Volume 36, Issue 10: Urethral Injuries/Robotic Surgery.
The goals of this program are to improve diagnosis and treatment of posterior urethral injuries and cystectomy. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Illustrate mechanisms of injury that commonly result in posterior urethral trauma.
2. Formulate an emergent assessment and management plan for a patient with known or suspected posterior urethral injury.
3. Use preoperative imaging findings to counsel a patient undergoing urethroplasty on planned surgical maneuvers and the likelihood of a positive outcome.
4. Compare important quality metrics and oncologic outcomes for robotic vs open cystectomy for bladder cancer.
5. Discuss the complications of robotic cystectomy.
The original programs were presented by Kristy M. Borawski, MD, Assistant Professor, Department of Surgery, Division of Urologic Surgery, University of North Carolina School of Medicine, Chapel Hill, and Raj S. Pruthi, MD, Professor and Chief of Urology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
