At the conclusion of this conference, participants should be able to:
- Summarize recent randomized studies on PSA-based prostate cancer screening
- Utilize 2011 USPSTF Prostate Cancer Screening Guidelines
- Describe the clinical and pathologic rationale of active surveillance and focal therapy
- Discuss the risks, benefits, and data available for active surveillance and focal therapy of prostate cancer
- Compare and contrast the management options for seminoma and non-seminomatous germ cell tumors of the testicle
- Discuss definitions of high-risk prostate cancer
- Identify oncologic outcomes of radiation therapy and surgery for high-risk prostate cancer
- Review metabolic risks on the development of LUTS/BPH
- Explain how to prevent the development of LUTS thru lifestyle management.
- Indicate the risks in using AHR Rx.
- Identify when to use AHR agents and when the indications are right for your patients.
- Analyze the relationships between ED and LUTS.
- Relate how treatment of LUTS may impact sexual function.
- Explain the impact of ED meds on LUTS.
- Discuss the efficacy of penile rehabilitation on ED post Radical prostatectomy
- State the mechanism (S) of action for penile rehab.
- Determine the treatment options for small renal masses
- Utilize AUA guidelines for small renal masses
- Provide an explanation of the planning, laboratory work, and clinical investigation that went into the accomplishment of the first laparoscopic nephrectomy in June 1990.
- Recognize the place of laparoscopic nephrectomy in the development of minimally invasive therapy for renal tumors vis a vis the current developments in needle ablative therapy.
- Compare and contrast various maneuvers that facilitate successful passage of the flexible ureteroscope and optimal stone fragmentation and removal. These maneuvers include "coaxial thinking", access sheaths, and patient positioning.
- Discuss creativity from a personal perspective with regard to identification of a "seminal why" and the ensuing process of discovery, development, and dissemination.
- Describe decision making with regard to the application of percutaneous, ureteroscopic, and shock wave lithotripsy approaches to treat renal calculi and the use of stone density, skin to stone distance, and stone size to guide surgical judgment.
