|Rēzum™ Water Vapour Therapy Course|
|Course Number I: Date||27 October 2021
|Course Number II: Date:||28 October 2021
|Course Number III Date:||29 October 2021
|Venue:||Alexandria Library Convention Center|
|Course Director:||Aly Abdel-Karim|
|Course Coordinator:||Ahmed Aboelfotooh|
|Indication & Technique:|
|The Rēzum System is intended to relieve symptoms, remove obstructions, and reduce prostate tissue associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It is indicated for men with a prostate volume ≥ 30cm3. The Rēzum System is also indicated for treatment of prostate with hyperplasia of the central zone and/or a median lobe.
Powered by convective water vapor energy, the Rezūm™ System delivers targeted, controlled doses of the stored thermal energy in water vapor directly to the region of the prostate gland with the obstructive tissue causing the lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Each 9-second treatment uses 0.42ml of heated sterile water vapor which rapidly and uniformly disperses through the tissue interstices. The condensation of water vapor releases stored thermal energy. Cell membranes are denatured, thereby causing immediate cell death, the vasculature is closed, and there is denervation of the al pha-adrenergic nerves within the treatment zone providing you with a uniform, predictable treatment.
Over time, this ablated tissue is reabsorbed by the body’s natural healing response, reducing the volume of tissue allowing the urethra to open relieving LUTS.
|Aims & Objectives:|
|The delegates will be taken through a sequential program using the Rezum simulator, where they will be able to perform the 8 procedure steps on different cases scenarios with different prostate volume anatomy.
The delegates will be able to know the recommended guidelines for Rezūm vapor treatment based on prostate volume, urethral length, and the natural slope of the urethra.
