Urinary stone surgery: more than building a better mousetrap.

Adj Asst Prof Dr Heng Chin Tiong

Director Urology at Jurong Health Campus, Senior Consultant at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, National University Health System

Urinary stone surgery has led the way in endoscopic interventions not least because urinary stone disease is very common, but also because surgeons realized very early on that the urinary tract provided a most convenient access. Fast forward to today, we are very adept at breaking stones. However, we are still plagued with the issue of incomplete fragmentation, retained fragments as well as access issues. This talk will cover a brief history of the technological development of instruments and equipment used in urinary stone surgery as well as the challenges faced by urologists today.

Dear Registrants,

Please be informed that our February 11th UroXChange Event has been re-scheduled. The Event Organizing Committee believes this to be the right thing to do, in view of the Coronavirus situation which W.H.O. has declared a global health emergency. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

We hope to announce a re-scheduled event date mid-March. Please check our website for more information then, or if you wish to receive email updates, you may join our urological innovation network here.

With overwhelming response from UroXChallenge applicants, we will continue to accept pre-proposal abstract submissions received before the initial set dateline of 16th March. While a new timeline for the innovation call will be announced after the re-scheduled briefing and networking event, abstracts submitted before 16th March will be evaluated and have the chance to receive (a) fast track award by invitation, and/or (b) constructive feedback that will allow abstract improvement and resubmission during the rescheduled innovation call.

Stay safe and stay tuned!

Best regards
UroX Event Organizing Committee
