Society of Urodynamics and Female Urology: SUFU Winter Meeting

The urological subspecialty, which includes female and male pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, urodynamics, voiding dysfunction and neuromodulation, is a rapidly developing area. Attendees of the SUFU program need to be aware of the latest updates and controversies in topics related to female urology, pelvic floor prolapse, neurourology, geriatrics, BPH, genitourinary reconstructive surgery and pelvic neuromodulation. This meeting will provide active interactions between clinicians, investigators and basic scientists regarding diagnostic, therapeutics, and research topics related to urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, urodynamics, voiding dysfunction, and neuromodulation and robotic surgery. Attendees will benefit from the ongoing review of these topics, which will assist them in assessing patients and determining future research needs. Objectives
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
  1. Assess the role of the latest translational work in areas of bladder signaling, lower urinary tract biomechanics,
    biochemical changes and genetics of stress urinary incontinence neurorestoration and BPH
  2. Identify the pros and cons of mesh and biomaterials in pelvic reconstruction
  3. Describe latest evidence-based data and state-of-the-art care related to male and female incontinence, overactive bladder, pelvic prolapse and pelvic reconstructive surgery and neuromodulation
  4. Describe the latest information on stem cell technology for the treatment of stress incontinence in women
  5. Assess the role of office-based care of the neurological patient
  6. Describe the current Management of the adult spina bifida patient
  7. Describe emerging technologies in neuromodulation and neurotoxins in lower urinary tract dysfunction
  8. Describe the current critical evidence based evaluation of Laser Ablation Procedures for BPH/LUTS in comparison to TURP
  9. Explain the value of pressure-flow urodynamic studies prior to outlet reduction surgery
