Course Topics

General and Surgical Urology

Optimize the use of catheterizable conduits in the treatment of children with voiding dysfunction; Recommend measures to prevent urinary tract infections in children; Follow an algorithm for the management of the nonpalpable testis; Provide treatment options for patients who have failed bacillus Calmette-Gu?rin therapy; Incorporate the Medicare Authorization and CHIP Reauthorization Act regulations into urologic practice.

Bladder Cancer

Highlight key surgical techniques and postoperative strategies to achieve successful orthotopic bladder substitution; Evaluate the role of urinary tumor markers in the
diagnosis of bladder cancer; Consider the use of blue-light cystoscopy in the treatment of patients with bladder cancer; Compare outcomes of robotic cystectomy with
open cystectomy; Weigh the advantages of intracorporeal and extracorporeal urinary diversions.

Prostate Cancer/Pain Management

Identify patients with prostate cancer who are suitable for active surveillance; Determine which patients in active surveillance programs for prostate cancer require further treatment; Use genomic testing to select patients with prostate cancer for active surveillance; Implement evidence-based strategies for the management of acute postoperative pain; Formulate a regimen of postoperative pain control for a patient taking opioids preoperatively.

Topics in Prostate Cancer

Implement measures to reduce the detection of low-risk prostate cancer and improve the detection of high-risk prostate cancer; Describe techniques for performing robotic extended pelvic lymph node dissection; Choose screening tests that enhance discrimination between indolent and aggressive prostate cancer; Select tests to reduce the need for repeat biopsy in patients at high risk for prostate cancer; Evaluate the utility of multigene panels for guiding treatment decisions for men with prostate cancer.

Prostate MRI

Classify lesions of the prostate based on the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS); Use findings of magnetic resonance imaging to plan surgical procedures in patients with lesions of the prostate; Compare the results of in-bore biopsy of the prostate with those of fusion-guided targeted biopsy; Select imaging modalities to evaluate patients with rising prostate-specific antigen levels and negative findings on biopsy; Optimize the use of magnetic resonance imaging for follow-up in patients treated for prostate cancer.

Pearls of Practical Urology

Comply with guidelines for follow-up of patients with prostate cancer, both during active surveillance programs and after definitive treatment; Evaluate strategies of follow-up for patients with bladder cancer; Plan follow-up for patients with renal masses and with kidney cancer following nephrectomy; Define bladder underactivity and treat patients with this condition; Compare abdominal sacrocolpopexy with vaginal repair for treating pelvic organ prolapse.

Renal Disorders/Prostate Cancer

Adopt techniques for successful percutaneous nephrolithotomy for renal stones; Formulate an algorithm for the treatment of ureteroileal strictures; Cite the advantages of robotic cystectomy compared with open cystectomy; List risk factors for the development of prostate cancer; Evaluate the role of fat and sugar consumption in the development and management of prostate cancer.

Indications in Urology

Optimize the urologic care of patients' transition from adolescence to adulthood; Identify imperative indications for nephron-sparing surgery in patients with kidney cancer; Plan treatment for patients with bilateral renal tumors; Determine whether patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer are candidates for bladder-preservation techniques; Compare outcomes of bladder-preservation treatment modalities in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer.

Male Urology

Formulate an algorithm for the management of patients with CSCP; Choose appropriate treatment options for patients with postvasectomy pain; Cite the indications for retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) after chemotherapy in patients with advanced nonseminomas of the testis; Evaluate the role of minimally invasive and midline extraperitoneal approaches to RPLND in patients with advanced nonseminomas of the testis; Optimize outcomes of sling procedures in men with urinary incontinence following prostatectomy.

Endourology

Compare ureteroscopic techniques for basketing and dusting of stones; Select patients with kidney stones who are candidates for basketing and dusting; Recommend dietary measures and medications for the prevention of recurrent nephrolithiasis; Optimize results of shock-wave lithotripsy for patients with urolithiasis; Evaluate prostatic artery embolization, prostatic urethral lift, and transurethral water vapor therapy in the treatment of men with benign prostatic hyperplasia.
