International symposium on urinary calculi




On August 13, 2022, Shanghai General Hospital (SGH) hosted an international symposium on urinary stones.

Urinary stones are solid particles in the urinary system that can cause pain, vomiting or nausea, hematuria, and chills and fever due to possible secondary infection.

The speakers* discussed topics related to endoscopically guided PCNL and mini-PCNL. PCNL, which means Percutaneous Nephrolitholapaxy in German, is a minimally invasive procedure to remove stones from the kidney via a small puncture wound through the skin.

We had the honor to support the conference organizationally and invited a German expert to the event: Prof. Florian Wagenlehner, MD. He is head of the Department of Adult and Pediatric Urology, Andrology at the University Hospital Giessen UKGM. On August 13 Prof. Dr. med. Wagenlehner informed his colleagues about aspects of "Urosepsis and Stone (Disease)".

We are grateful for the valuable input from all speakers on this day and look forward to organizing more conferences for clients like Shanghai General Hospital (SGH).

SGH was founded in 1864 by French consuls as one of the largest hospitals for Western medicine in China. If you are interested in the work and history of Shanghai General Hospital, you can find its homepage here:
