2015 marked the debut of Pelvic Floor Disorders (PFD) Week, an expansion of the very successful AUGS Annual Scientific Meeting. PFD Week was created by AUGS to become the go-to meeting for health care professionals interested in or actively practicing Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. The core of the meeting contains the traditional two and half days of scientific presentation with the addition of one day of surgical and clinical workshop sessions.

With this expanded focus, the meeting brings together physicians, physicians-in-training, researchers, physical therapists, advance nurse practitioners, physician assistants and nurse practitioners to collaborate, network and learn from each other’s expertise. PFD Week creates the forum to learn from each other’s knowledge, experience and expertise, for the improvement of women’s urogynecologic care.

PFD Week is an inclusive meeting that offers access to internationally recognized leaders in the field and the opportunity to network with the most highly respected health professionals in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.

As President of the Northeastern Section of the American Urological Association, I would like to invite you to attend to our 70th Annual Meeting to be held in Toronto, Canada from Thursday, October 11 through Saturday, October 13, 2018. The meeting will be held at the centrally located and historic Royal York Hotel, one of the elegant and luxurious hotels built by the Canadian Pacific Railroad Company. The weather in Toronto during October is ideal and the location of our meeting provides easy access to the multiple attractions. “Fun Night” will be held at the Hockey Hall of Fame in close proximity to the Royal York and features historic exhibits as well as challenging interactive displays.

The program committee, chaired by Dr. Teresa Danforth, has ensured that state of the art education in the major domains of urology will be provided and will also include provocative offerings in emerging areas such as the impact of artificial intelligence on urology and the role of the urologist in transgender surgery. Nationally recognized speakers have been selected and the meeting has been designed using a “compressed” format which in previous years has enjoyed enthusiastic acceptance by attendees. The programming is diverse and includes podium sessions, the AUA course of choice, debates and poster sessions.

On behalf of the Northeastern Section, I would like to thank Dr. Rob Siemens and his committee for organizing last year’s extraordinary meeting in Savannah, Georgia and for ensuring that it was an unqualified success. I am confident that this year’s meeting in Toronto will at least reach that same standard.

Very Truly Yours,
Dr. Gerald Sufrin

The Thiel embalming technique is a sophisticated method of preservation of complete human cadavers that allow the cadaver to maintain most of the features of a live body, particularly with regards to the authenticity of colour, tissue consistency and flexibility (see laparoscopic view of the peritoneum). Laparoscopic courses in other specialities at our centre using Thiel's cadavers have been successful and are in high demand.

This 2 day course is aimed at Senior Trainees and Consultants who have already achieved some competency in Urological Laparoscopy. The operative programme will cover a wide range of techniques of Laparoscopic Nephrectomy and delegate will have the opportunity to have “hands on” experience on both calf models and human cadavers to practise a wide range of Advanced Laparoscopic Techniques.
