What others say about this masterclass

Read the masterclass experience of Dr. Anastasia Polykarpova (RU).

Dr. Giovanni Grimaldi (IT):
“The masterclass offered a critical and thorough evaluation of the right source of energy for various pathologies which included management of benign prostatic obstruction, bladder and upper tract tumours, urinary tract stenosis and stone diseases.”

Dr. Matteo Ferrari (CH):
“I appreciated that the live surgeries were explained in detail: usage of instruments, surgical manoeuvres, basic elements and the most advanced tips. It was incredibly helpful that the audience can pose their questions during the procedures. I was also impressed by the complexity of the live surgeries that stimulated discussions regarding anterograde ureteroscopy for the diagnosis and treatment of uretero-intestinal stenosis.”

Dr. Volodymyr Chernylovskyi (UA):
“The high point of the masterclass for me were the live surgeries of Prof. Thomas Knoll (DE) and Prof. Olivier Traxer (FR). Prof. Knoll’s Mini-PCNL + holmium laser for renal stone taught me multiple approaches. When Prof. Traxer demonstrated RIRS + holmium laser for lower pole stone, I’ve learned its advantages (no injuries and no scars) and disadvantages (prolonged operation time).”
