In 2017 USANZ will hold its 70th Annual Scientific Meeting, and celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Society in our nation’s capital city. The 2017 USANZ ASM will be held in Canberra from 24 to 27 February. With planning well underway, the Meeting is set to continue the high-quality that has become the USANZ ASM.
Already the Scientific Program Committee, under the Chairmanship of Shomik Sengupta, has been hard at work securing the attendance of some truly outstanding world-renowned experts.

The committee promises a broad program with something for everyone, and as usual our local expertise within USANZ will be on display beside an exceptional line-up of international faculty that to date, includes: Stephen Boorjian, Steven Brandes, John Davis, James Eastham, Donna Hansel, Laurence Klotz, Laurence Levine, Kevin McVary, Victor Nitti, Maria Ribal, Olivier Traxer, and Curtis Nickel.

If you haven’t been to Canberra for a while, or if you’ve never been, this is your perfect chance to catch up with the city that in 2014 was named by the OECD as the “best place in the world to live”.

Canberra is full of surprises. Where else can you gain free access to world-class attractions such as the National Portrait Gallery, the Australian War Memorial, the National Gallery, and National Museum?

Have you ever dined at Parliament House? If not, here’s your chance. We are holding the ASM Gala Dinner on Sunday 26 February in the Great Hall; we’ll have the same chefs as recent visitors the Obamas, Prince Frederick and Princess Mary of Denmark, and HRH Prince William and Katherine.

Want to sleep with lions, taste a “freakshake”, savour an exceptional array of world-class restaurants, or gaze on the 6 million tiles in the Hall of Memory at the War Memorial? Throughout the planning period we’ll be giving you fun (& sometimes freakish) facts about Canberra, and whetting your appetite.

Save the date now, and join us for what promises to be an exciting and surprising 70th ASM.

Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (LEP) is an established alternative to traditional Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) and open prostatectomy. This full-day course will focus on LEP techniques, instrumentation, current lasers used, and intravesical soft-tissue retrieving devices. This specific endourologic technique of the Lower Urinary Tract (LUT) is of particular relevance to practicing urologists.
The course uniquely combines didactic material and live-case demonstrations to provide interested urologists with a comprehensive learning experience. The course features two didactic presentations (Current Lasers used in the Lower Urinary Tract, Laser Enucleation of the Prostate: Instruments and Technique) on Day 1, followed by a full day of observation of LEP procedures with the opportunity to discuss the cases with the faculty performing the procedures.

There is no registration fee for this course. However, pre-registration is required, and registration is limited to 4 individuals.
All registrants are required to provide the following documentation 1 week prior to the start of the session. If items are not received your registration will be cancelled.
* Proof of Medical License
* Current TB Test Results (within the past 12 months). This can be PPD or IGRA*. If you have a history of positive PPD/IGRA a chest x-ray report within the last 6 months (letter from physician is not accepted).
* Current Influenza Vaccination Record (within the past 12 months)

In advanced prostate cancer, rapid and successful drug development has resulted in multiple treatment options, requiring careful decision making for individual patients. Clinicians face the increasingly difficult task of choosing from multiple potentially effective treatments that are also costly and potentially toxic.

The inaugural Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) did provide a forum for discussion and debates on current treatment options for men with advanced prostate cancer. The conference concluded with voting by the panel on pre-defined consensus questions, targeting areas of primary clinical relevance. Following the conference a manuscript with containing the expert recommendations was published at Annals of Oncology.

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 3rd International Congress for Underactive Bladder (CURE-UAB). This 1.5 day program will feature the cutting edge research, clinical care, and technological advancements for underactive bladder.
The event will feature presentations from a world renowned faculty, panel discussions, work groups, and poster sessions. This international gathering will appeal to basic researchers, nurses, clinicians, academicians, industry representatives, and other stakeholders from the fields of urology, geriatrics, gynecology, neurology, and general medicine.

Objectives of this year’s CURE-UAB

  1. Discuss the prevalence of UAB, specifically as it relates to aging.
  2. Recognize the challenges and complexities of treating UAB.
  3. Recall and discuss possible treatments for UAB.
  4. Explain the pathophysiology of myogenic and neurogenic UAB.

CURE-UAB provides an unparalleled platform for learning, participating, networking, collaborating, and discussing the emerging field of underactive bladder. CURE-UAB is supported by the Robert B. & Ann S. Aikens Urology Research Fund.
