Dr. Dimitrios Deligiannis (GR), supported by Team Greece, emerged victorious in the third and final round of the cup EAU Guidelines Cup, a new competition to determine which EAU member knows the EAU Guidelines the best.
The contest was hosted by the Young Urologists Office (YUO) and European Society of Residents in Urology (ESRU) as part of YUORDay18. Prior to the annual congress, the first and second rounds took place online through multiple-choice questions. 450 contestants were whittled down to 125, and then the final three.
Introduced to the sounds of “We Are The Champions”, Deligiannis took on Dr. Giorgi Tsabutashvili (GE) and Team Georgia and Dr. Filippo Maria Turri (IT) and Team Italy. The audience also joined the competition using anonymous voting pads.
The questions posed covered several topics of the EAU Guidelines, varying from Peyronie’s disease, urolithiasis, renal, testicular and penile cancer and much more.
The results and prizes were announced to a soundtrack of “Eye Of The Tiger”. Turri, the third place winner, and Dr Mária Rodriguez-Monsalve Herrero (ES), the audience member with the highest score, received full access to UROsource, the EAU learning library for urologists which is the largest knowledge base in the field of urology with over 60,000 items of quality scientific content.
Tsabutashvili, the second place winner, won a four-volume set of Campbell-Walsh Urology (11th edition) featuring 22 new chapters including an increased focus on robotic surgery and image-guided diagnostics as well as online access to 130 video clips.
As champion, Deligiannis can choose free attendance at any masterclass from the huge selection offered by the European School of Urology.
Thomas Knoll (DE) and Maria Ribal (ES) acted as the members of the jury for the session. Juan Vásquez Mendoza (DK) who moderated the session told the contestants, “You are all winners; you beat a lot of competition to get here.” He told the audience to stay tuned for next year’s cup which he promised would be even more fun.
