EAU 8th South Eastern European Meeting and surgeries in Sofia

The EAU 8th South Eastern European Meeting took place this year in Sofia, and we presented our experience with GreenLEP (GreenLight Enucleation of the Prostate) that we have acumulated during the last years at the Hill Clinic in Sofia.

In order to see it you have to notice that we stuck an ipad on the poster, so that urologists could see the video of the technique. It was sensational!

Then we started the surgical session, as every month. This time we had 15 GreenLight enucleations in 3 days, that went really well. In this session we registered all surgical times and data because we were trying the new Vmax blades for the Piranha Morcellator, from Richard Wolf.

We are very impressed to see the amazing efficiency of morcellation that these blades provide. We managed to morcellate 10 grams of tissue for every minute of morcellation surgical time. It is espectacular, we sent an abstract for the EAU with the data.

In this photo, all the specimens we obtained during the three days, that were sent for histological evaluation.

At last I returned to Madrid, very happy. Operating so many patients in such a short time is always a wonderful learning experience, and the enucleation technique keeps sophisticating itself, becoming more simple, faster and safer.
