UW Urology Awarded "Posters of Exceptional Merit" and "Best Overall Scientific Exhibit" at 2011 ACS
Only eight out of 600 abstracts submitted to the October 2011 ACS meeting in San Francisco were chosen as Posters of Exceptional Merit. Two of those eight top abstracts were submitted by the UW Department of Urology:
- “Length of Operative Time is an Independent Predictor of Increased Risk for Venous Thromboembolic Events (VTE) in Patients Undergoing Robot-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy,” E. Jason Abel, Kelvin Wong, Martins Sado, Tracy Downs, David Jarrard.
- “Neutrophil-Lymphocyte Ratio (NLR) is Associated with Increased Risk of Pathological Upstaging after Radical Cystectomy (RC) for Clinical T2 Urothelial Carcinoma,” Aaron Potretzke, Luke Hillman, E. Jason Abel, Tracy M. Downs.
The second abstract was voted the Best Overall Scientific Exhibit (out of 600 abstracts)!
Congratulations to Drs. Abel, Downs, Jarrard, Potretzke and Wong, as well as Martins Sado and Luke Hillman, for their outstanding work!
