UPCOMING MEETINGS

Educational initiative: Online GURS Fellows’ Journal Club – Please Join Us 

The next GURS journal club for fellows will take place Monday, January 25th at 5:00 pm PST, 8:00 pm EST. Fellows and program directors should attend if at all possible. Please see the included Zoom link.

Subject: Clinical significance of cystoscopic urethral stricture recurrence after anterior urethroplasty.

The relevant publications are attached to this email.

Dr. Benjamin Breyer will present the findings and the discussion will be led by Dr. Ken Angermeier (Cleveland Clinic). The paper has a number of issues, but it also brings up some really interesting questions about how we define success in urethral surgery (functional v anatomic), how should we follow patients after surgery, and when to intervene if someone has a recurrence.

The journal club is open to all GURS members and current, previous, and upcoming GURS fellows. Please use the link below to join us on Monday, January 25th at 5:00pm PST.
