World Congress of Endourology, Munich, Germany

This week I traveled to Munich to participate in the World Congress of Endourology. I had to co-chair a session on Greenlight Laser Prostatectomy with Dr. Gerasimos Alivizatos.

There were also my friends Dr. Oliver Reich, Dr. Alexander Bachmann and Dr. Andreas Skolarikos.

It was a very interesting symposium with a lively discussion. I presented some new technical variations for big prostates, as the brand new GreenLEP (Greenlight Laser Enucleation of the prostate), that was welcomed with interest. I was also interviewed for the congress magazine.

I could only stay one day,  because I had the compromise to participate in a congress in Beirut.

Dear Dr Gomez Sancha,

Hearing that GreenLight can be used to enucleate the prostate is an interesting thing to know. In my understanding, due to its wavelength, GreenLight will be absorbed by oxyhemoglobin, can you explain how it is possible to enucleate using GreenLight?

Dear Ardi,

I am working in a video to post here, I hope it will be soon.

Dear Dr Gomez,

After seeing the GreenLep video, I was fascinated to see how GL can still be developed or should I say, adapted with the technique that already existed. I hope this technique will be make known soon to the other urologist and GL-users worldwide.

Thank you very much doctor to share such an amazing knowledge.
