The ICS was back in Europe for a 1½ days Education Course, this time in the cosmopolitan city of Berlin, Germany. Once again, the ICS had a range of local and international speakers, but we were especially pleased to welcome John DeLancey who covered the session on Anatomy and Pathomorphology of the Posterior Compartment. We were also pleased to receive two other highly regarded American speakers, Kathryn Burgio and Patricia Goode, who contributed to the Conservative Management of Urinary Incontinence session.
There were also presentations on Dynamic Rehabilitative Ultrasound by Bärbel Junginger and sessions dedicated to Neuromodulation and the Neurogenic Bladder, chaired by John Heesakkers and Annett Gauruder-Burmester. Ralf Tunn and others concluded the course with a session on Mixed Incontinence, Diagnosis and Treatment.
Everyone agreed that the overall quality of the presentations was very high. We were a little disappointed with the number of delegates, but this may have been due to the time of the year and the start of the holiday season.
As always, you can view the final programme with the speakers’ presentation summaries on the ICS website under the ‘courses’ category in the ‘documents’ section.
The ICS would like to thank Elke Hessdoerfer and Ralf Tunn for their support and assistance in coordinating this course. Both had agreed to join forces and replace their annual "LUTS meets Art" and "Berlin- Brandenburgische Urogynäkologie-Tage" with this Education Course. We very much appreciate their efforts and the ICS would like to express its gratitude to them both.
