About the ESGURS21 Virtual Meeting

ESGURS21 will be a hybrid meeting, meaning that faculty and surgeons will be in Madrid and delegates will join virtually. This allows for easier interaction during panel discussions and a more engaging and educational experience for delegates.
Delegates can expect demonstrations in all the latest techniques in moderated live and pre-recorded surgery sessions, and join in the discussion between world-renowned reconstructive surgeons actively via chat.

ESGURS21 will be held in conjunction with the ESU-ESAU-ESGURS Masterclass on Erectile Restoration and Peyronie’s disease, more information can be found here.


Abstracts

Abstract submission is closed.
The abstract submission outcome will be communicated before the end of September to all abstract presenters.
