Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Keeping current with medical innovations is a challenge that all health care professionals are faced with. The closed expert meeting "New Horizons in Urology" (NHU), which takes place yearly, aims to give practising urologists an overview of new information and its potential implementation in clinical practice. The NHU2007 meeting was held in June in Monte Carlo, Monaco. The meeting focused on the multidisciplinary management of the prostate cancer (PCa) patient, which included the concept of modern androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) for optimal control of testosterone as well as considerations about a new paradigm in clinical practice, integrative medicine. Furthermore, some pitfalls of pathological staging in PCa regarding core needle biopsies and radical prostatectomy specimens were highlighted. In addition, the technical advances of modern external beam radiation therapy (RT) as well as the clinical application of RT after radical prostatectomy and in combination with ADT were discussed.
