Every year, the Hospital de Clínicas organizes the already known Live Surgery Course “Urovivo" that, this year, will be held on August, 2022. It consists on a two-day course withlive surgeries performed at the University Hospital, with simultaneous interpreting.
This year, due to the COVID 19 Pandemic that still continues, added to the recent world events, its dictation represents a real challenge. The objective will be to return to the usual format, where the invited surgeons operate from the Hospital's operating room and the public attends from an auditorium. However, technology and its advances also allow some distinguished urologists from abroad to join us from their respective Centers.This way, we will have a hybrid offer, which will allow public to be live and also remotely. It is worth mentioning that the course will have simultaneous interpretation into English and Mandarin Chinese. In this way we aim to have a global impact, supported by the fact that the members of the Endurological Society will have free access.
In 2021 an entirely virtual course was held, which had a huge impact worldwide with more than 1500 views and the presence of an unprecedented panel of world leaders. On the website www.urovivo.com you can see the impressive agenda and the guests we received last year.
In this opportunity, within the twelve planned procedures, different interventions will be included such as Percutaneous Nephrolithotripsy, Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery, Partial Laparoscopic Nephrectomy, Robotic Prostatectomy, Laser and Bipolar Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Surgeries and others. In addition, lectures will be given that will provide theoretical support to the eminently practical knowledge that will be imparted.
The presence and support of the pharmaceutical industry and the companies that supply the surgical materials will be reflected through their logos during the broadcast and at intervals. In addition, surgeries can be performed with only one company's products on an exclusive basis, allowing the audience to see the benefits of the various products each company has to offer. There is also the possibility of presenting a short commercial video during the intervals to promote a particular product. The participation of each company includes the possibility of having scholarships to register participants to the event. The event will have virtual stands where companies can have information about their products, chats with representatives, games and raffles for participants and other possibilities for interaction and connection with attendees, in addition to the possibility of having a space in the Auditorium to interact with the public face to face. We have established a contribution of 10,000 dollars, that allows one surgery exclusively, a promotional video during the intervals in one of the days of the course, and 10 (ten) scholarships.
With the conviction that the presence and support of the pharmaceutical and surgical materials industry are essential to guarantee the success of this event and hoping to count on their collaboration, we extend our warmest greetings,
Professor Norberto Bernardo
