The Surgical Treatments of LUTS / BOO; Do we now have too much choice?

12th October 2020 at 19:00 BST


The surgical management of bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) has seen the introduction of an array of new procedures in the last 10 years. This session will provide a clear overview of what is on offer and explore the evidence base behind their use. In particular, it will ask the question ‘what is the level of evidence necessary for the implementation of novel treatments?.

Attendees will gain an improved understanding of the currently available options in the management of BOO which will inform their discussions with patients.

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the range of surgical options now available in the management of BOO.
  • To compare and contrast the risks and benefits of different options available.
  • To gain an understanding of the level of evidence required for the implementation of new technologies.
  • To provide attendees with an up-to-date overview of current evidence-based best practice.
