We would like to welcome you to AniCura's first Belgian congress, the AniCura Small Animal Urology Congress, that will take place February 17-18th 2022 at Orsi in Melle, Belgium!
The two-day congress covers all important aspects of small animal urology. Since many new treatment options have been emerging the last decade, the focus of the congress is on propagating new insights into pathologies, educate on new diagnostic techniques and introduce less invasive, innovative treatment methods. It is therefore suitable for those who want to improve their general knowledge, as well as those that want to specifically acquire new skills.
On Wednesday 16th of Feb we will organise a Wet-lab Masterclass on cystoscopy techniques. Participants are introduced to the non-invasive use of flexible and rigid endoscopes for urethrocystoscopy. Also, the surgical use of endoscopes for percutaneous cystoscopy is taught. These techniques will greatly facilitate the diagnosis of many urological pathologies and be helpful in the surgical treatment of several of these pathologies.
Update: because of the major interest in the Wet-lab Masterclass cystoscopy techniques, we decided to offer this masterclass also on Feb 18th.
Update: it is now possible to book tickets to follow the 2-day congress online. Once the payment is completed, the link to participate online will be shared a few days in advance via email.
On Thursday 17th and Friday 18th we have foreseen a Wet-lab Masterclass on the treatment of ureteral obstruction with a subcutaneous ureteral bypass device. Participants will understand the decision-making tree for ureteral obstruction in cats. Furthermore, they are taught how to place a subcutaneous ureteral bypass device. Attention is also given to the follow-up of these delicate patients.
The working language for both the conference and the wet-labs is English.
