                  All visitors are invited to learn more about Cook Medical’s Urology products by                   participating in augmented reality experiences. The experiences demonstrate                     the capabilities of innovative products, including:

  • NGage® Nitinol Stone Extractor: Highlights the ability to reposition and release stones or remove a stone
  • Rhapsody H-30™ Holmium Laser System: Showcases the difference between the long and short pulse width, and shows how pulse width affects stone movement and how the stone breaks
  • BIGopsy® Backloading Biopsy Forceps: Highlights the sample size that can be obtained when BIGopsy is used
  • Resonance® Metallic Ureteral Stent: Demonstrates the pressure that the stent can withhold when compressed by a tumor

Skills Challenge 
Participants will have one minute to use the PERC NGage®, PERC NCompass®, or PERC NCircle® to remove as much stone burden as possible. Participants will then choose from the nitinol ureteroscopy baskets and be given two minutes to attempt to remove the burden ureteroscopically. The winner will be chosen on the basis of the total combined weight removed and will be announced by AUA officials at 12 p.m. on May 20 in the Residents Bowl area.
