Prof. Jean-Nicolas Cornu (Rouen, FR), Co-Chair of EAU21’s “Plenary Session 2: Optimal management of incontinence in the elderly patient”, shares an overview of valuable insights on the treatment strategies that will be discussed at the session: “Urinary incontinence is one of the most frequent urological conditions, especially in the elderly population. The impact of population ageing is already seen in urology wards where patients are older and older. "During the #EAU21 Virtual congress, a specific focus will be made on UI in the elderly, discussing overactive bladder treatments and surgical options. These options include bulking agents, slings, and artificial urinary sphincter. We will also specifically look at drugs: how and when to use them in daily practice.“Experts in incontinence will also discuss pragmatic clinical situations in both sexes, e.g. an artificial sphincter dysfunction in an elderly male, and a case of stress urinary incontinence in an elderly female candidate for surgery."Key opinion leaders will also cover the growing legal and regulatory issues in the field of mesh implantation, and focus on the patient’s perspective.“Beyond the plenary session, the rest of the EAU21 programme will also cover hot topics related to incontinence. This includes poster and thematic sessions on cutting-edge scientific reports, updated clinical trials results, and presentations on new instruments and devices.”▶️Plenary Session 02 will take place on 9 July 2021 from 10:30 to 12:00 CEST.
