ICS is organising a live surgery in Florence that allows our delegates to evaluate diagnostic work-up before surgery and follow-up for cases of urinary incontinence and prolapse. Delegates will be able to watch and discuss the surgical procedure step-by-step with the surgeon and experts during traditional open surgery and new mini-invasive techniques such as videolaparoscopic and robotics.

We will present the latest in minimally invasive treatment of prolapses and urinary incontinence. Laparoscopic and robot assisted promontofixation will be presented simultaneously as well as male sling.

Male and female surgeries will involve urologists and gynecologists to provoke a constructive discussion to improve our knowledge from a functional point of view. An interactive discussion will be warranted by expert moderators in the auditorium aimed to deepen practical and scientific knowledge. The session will be opened by a discussion about the ethics of live surgery given by David Castro-Diaz.

Chairs: Sherif Mourad & Nucelio Lemos
