En bloc resection of Bladder Tumors using HybridKnife®

07-08 June and 04-05 October 2016, University Department of Urology Tuebingen

IHPBA 2016 - Liver resection using Erbe hybrid technology

The bladder tumor can be resected in one piece using the electrosurgery function of the HybridKnife instrument. By elevating the mucosa, the resection level is raised and the risk of perforation of the muscularis is reduced. The en bloc technique permits a more accurate pathological evaluation after the resection. Complete removal of the tumor can be verified on the basis of a contiguous resection border in the healthy tissue.

We would be delighted to demonstrate the procedure for you. Please register early, as the number of participants is limited because of the in-vitro workstations.
