ICS and EAU are proud to announce an agreement to jointly host the 3rd edition of the European Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (ELUTS19). The meeting promises to deliver essentials in LUTS management and also aims to offer well-rounded treatment approaches collated from urological subspecialties.
The meeting dates are confirmed for 31 October – 2 November in Prague, Czech Republic. Please visit the official meeting website:
EAU Secretary General Chris Chapple and ICS General Secretary Sherif Mourad share their valuable insights on current updates and challenges in LUTS management, potential breakthroughs in the field, and what ELUTS19 participants can expect at the meeting.
“ELUTS19 features the first collaboration between the EAU and the ICS, along with the various EAU Sections dealing with aspects of functional and reconstructive urology, and is an important cooperation between the two societies,” stated Prof. Chapple and Prof. Mourad.
Chris Chapple added, “This will allow a forum for a multidisciplinary approach to this important area of urology. We will examine the latest developments in functional urology, urogenital reconstruction and andrology in this specialist multidisciplinary meeting. Our objective is to provide an overview of what we know, what we don’t know, and what we need to know to improve the quality of care for our patients.”
What to expect at ELUTS19
Participants will congregate in Prague, Czech Republic to receive the best practices in LUTS management from myriad subspecialties. “The ELUTS19 scientific programme is comprised of carefully-selected topics that are relevant and interesting to urologists, urogynaecologists, physiotherapists, and nurses,” said Sherif Mourad.
The meeting is enriched with contributions from the EAU Sections of Female and Functional Urology (ESFFU), Genito-Urinary Reconstructive Surgeons (ESGURS), Urologists in Office (ESUO) and Andrological Urology (ESAU), interspersed with the educational ESU-ESFFU Masterclass on Functional Urology organised by the European School of Urology (ESU).
“ELUTS19 is a truly comprehensive meeting; it offers in-depth coverage and provides plenty of opportunities for participants to discuss and brainstorm with field experts and fellow participants at the meeting,” said Prof. Mourad.
