The registered delegates will have the opportunity to present their own work at the virtual poster’s corner.

The first virtual edition of the 11th Meeting “Endourology and Minimally Invasive Surgery” is expected to become once again a meeting point for urologists and young doctors working in the field of minimally invasive urology and interested in mastering the art of endourology and minimally invasive surgery.

We’re looking forward to meeting you online,
