• 16th Meeting of the EAU Robotic Urology Section

Creating consensus in robotic surgery

The sixteenth Meeting of the EAU Robotic Urology Section is taking place in Lisbon, the breathtaking capital of Portugal. From 11-13 September the Lisbon Congress Centre will be hosting us.

In 2019, the annual EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) meeting is coming to Portugal!

The sixteenth Meeting of the EAU Robotic Urology Section is taking place in Lisbon, the breathtaking capital of Portugal. From 11-13 September the Lisbon Congress Centre will be hosting us.

ERUS19 will also include the Junior ERUS – Young Academic Urologists Meeting and offer the opportunity for delegates to follow courses by the European School of Urology. Both will take place on September 11th, with the regular scientific programme starting on September 12th.

As we are on the verge of new robotic systems entering the market, ERUS19 offers a Technology Forum: an afternoon session on the 11th that allows manufacturers to give participants a look at the very latest technology.

Live Surgery

As the ERUS meeting has historically grown to become the most important Live-case Robotic Urological surgery meeting, the 2019 Lisbon edition will be no different! Over 15 live cases will be performed by the most experienced live surgeons on the three robotic systems in Lisbon’s Hospital Da Luz, Portugal’s largest private hospital.

The focus this year will be on both oncological as well as non-oncological urological surgery, since the latter has taken an important position in the robotic urology field. We will offer a mix of straightforward and complex live cases, As there is a growing number of salvage prostatectomies after various types of focal therapy, we plan to dedicate a session on this item. Extra time will be spent on Image-guided Robotic Surgery.

This year’s edition is built around the theme of creating consensus in robotic surgery. In working groups, we will try to reshape the available scientific data on several items to a ready-to-use consensus.

The mixture of high-level scientific lectures with moderated live transmission has made the ERUS meeting one of the most attractive meetings of his kind. On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, I invite you all to participate in the meeting and the courses. It will be a pleasure to meet you in Lisbon for the ERUS19!
