Injury to the urinary tract can occur secondary to blunt abdominal trauma, penetrating wounds, obstructive urinary calculi, neoplasia and iatrogenically as a result of surgical trauma, urethral catheterization or bladder expression.  Urinary leakage or obstruction resulting from these conditions can result in significant morbidity and mortality, if left untreated or if treatment is delayed.

An international multidisciplinary panel consisting of a world-renowned internist, criticalist and two surgeons will discuss indications and techniques of urinary diversion and abdominal drainage for stabilization from their own discipline’s perspective.  They will furthermore debate definitive surgical procedures for treatment of lower urinary tract emergencies.  Attendees will have ample opportunity to ask questions and share their own views and experiences.


* Participants are encouraged to send in questions to prior to the panel discussion. There will also be the opportunity to raise questions during the discussion.
