All 2016 scientific session webcasts are now live on ICS TV!
Webcasts are available for the following state of the art sessions:
SOA 1, Osamu Yokoyama - Metabolic Syndrome and LUTS - ICS 2016 Tokyo
This state of the art lecture will cover the increasing evidence that has pointed to a relationship between LUTS and the presence of metabolic syndrome. The prevalence of obesity BMI > 30 is markedly low in Asia, however, there is no difference in the prevalence of OAB between Asian countries and US & European countries. This lecture will review and emphasise lifestyle factors/diseases, which have a major influence on the development of LUTS. Understanding the underlying relationship between lifestyle factors and LUTS may lead to the development of new strategies for preventing and/or treating LUTS.
SOA 2, Bertil Blok - CNS mechanisms in voiding dysfunction - ICS 2016 Tokyo
This state of the art lecture will highlights the progress that has been made in the clarification of the role of the CNS in bladder and pelvic control. Unfortunately, this progress did not lead to a change of our clinical practice. This lecture will review several milestones in science. A possible roadmap will be presented for the next five years on how relevant basic, translational and clinical science can be combined in order to change our clinical practice for functional bladder disorders.
SOA 3, Rufus Cartwright - The Genetics of LUTD and the Promise of Stratified Medicine
Dr Cartwright addresses the 'current state of knowledge regarding the genetic basis of pelvic floor disorders in men and women.' His talk will explore how new discoveries in genomics have arisen, and how targeted treatments based on genetic biomarkers may transform care.
