Young Urologists Competition

Four up-and-coming urologists presented their research yesterday during the competition, which was chaired by Dr. Teemu Murtola (FI) and Dr. Juan Luis Vásquez (DK). Today, Dr. Taavi Põdramägi (EE) was named prize winner.

During his presentation “Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma: Is it possible to save the kidney?”, Põdramägi concluded with recommendations from the EAU Guidelines which included “Offer kidney-sparing management to patients with solitary kidney and/or impaired renal function, providing that it will not compromise survival. This decision will have to be made on a case-by-case basis with the patient.”
