ESU hands-on training

This year the European Section of Uro-Technology (ESUT) and the EAU Section of Urolithiasis (EULIS) are offering an intensive Hands-on Training course on Laparoscopy, Ureterorenoscopy (URS) and E-BLUS.
We invite you all to register!


With surgical training, the goal is to produce a surgeon who is highly competent and confident in performing laparoscopic procedures; and thereby mitigate the risks of complications. Because of the specific risks, visuospatial relationships, and the steep learning curve that are unique to laparoscopy, hands-on training on a box or visual simulator is the recommended way to start learning laparoscopic skills.

The Hands-on Training course will use different models focusing on the endoscopic management of urolithiasis. The delegates will follow a sequential programme of Ureterorenoscopy using normal endoscopic instruments in different models. The use of various guide-wires, baskets and intracorporeal lithotripters will be demonstrated.
