Just a few things I learned at #AUA17

Great meeting in Boston at the AUA. Here are just a few things, at the top of my head, that I learned.

  • Neonatal circumcision protects against penile cancer but not penile warts
  • HPV strain 16 is the most common type associated with penile cancer
  • The HPV vaccine in close to 100% effective vs strain 16
And from another course:
  • Using a tunica vaginalis patch can result in more testis saves during treatment for acute testis torsion
  • It is ok to place a testis prosthesis at the time of an orchiectomy for non-salvageable testes
and more...
