Conference in Oslo, "Leading Lights in Urology"

After returning from Mexico on thursday, I took a plane to Oslo, to participate in a meeting named "Leading Lights in Urology", organised by the European Association of Urology and sponsored by Astellas.

The programme was designed to review the current treatment of hiperactive bladder, BPH and prostate cancer. I was invited to review the scientific works on new technologies for the treatment of BPH presented at the European Association of Urology meeting, celebrated in Milan.

I had prepared a multimedia presentation reviewing the role of laparoscopy, TURP, bipolar TURP, bipolar vaporization and the growing role of lasers.

It was sad not to be able to stay in Oslo for longer.... this was the view I had from my hotel room...

I would have loved to visit the Vigeland park again, with its marvelous sculptures. I visited it 15 years ago, and I was fascinated by Vigeland's powerful sculptures.... I really love Norway... it is a wonderful country.
