2016 International BT-ESD Advanced Workshop

Xi’an, Shaanxi China June 3 – 5, 2016

IHPBA 2016 - Liver resection using Erbe hybrid technology

Despite of its high risk of recurrence after resection in clinical practice, TURBT is still a main therapy for non-muscle invasive bladder & urinary carcinoma currently. But it is particularly significant to develop a safe and effective new therapy for non-muscle invasive bladder carcinoma to reduce the recurrence rate, and BT-ESD (Bladder Tumor-Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection) therefore is brought into clinic. In order to promote development of urinary surgery and interdisciplinary extension of new technique, Erbe Advanced BT-ESD Workshop is launched as an academic exchange platform for urologists, under the joint efforts of Shanxi Provincial People’s Hospital and Erbe China Ltd.

The 1st BT-ESD Advanced Workshop was successfully held on 20th-21st, Nov, 2014. Prof. Zhangqun YE, a famous expert in urinary surgery, was invited to give a lecture at the workshop. A total of 3 sessions of this workshop have been conducted to date. It was his high appraisal to BT-ESD that made us adamant on proceeding with this workshop. Besides application of BTESD to non-muscle invasive bladder carcinoma, topic presentation about partial nephrectomy with no clamping and live demonstration will be added to workshop this year, and the biggest highlight is new application of electrosurgical unit, HybridKnife®, waterjet and argon Plasma module to urinary surgery.

Look forward to seeing you in Xi’an!
