Professor Knigavko Alexander took a part in Conference with 2 reports:

On January 23-25, 2020, the 22nd Congress of the European Society for Sexual Medicine was held in Prague, Czech Republic.
The Kharkiv Regional Medical Center of Urology and Nephrology was presented by a leading researcher, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Alexander Knigavko, with a report «The use of biothesiometry to detect increased sensitivity of the penis and its correction in the treatment of primary premature ejaculation.»
The report aroused great interest because it allows to objectively and reliably identify areas of increased sensitivity and determine patients for whom only surgical treatment of premature ejaculation (through selective neuroectomy) will lead to a solution to the problem of early ejaculation.
Also Dr. med. Sci., Professor A. Knigavko presented a report on the treatment of veno-occlusive erectile dysfunction by a combination of occlusive surgeries and the use of autologous stem cells. Also at the congress were presented new models of penile prostheses from the companies Rigicon and Coloplast, which allow the installation of implants up to 26 cm in length, which makes it possible not to lose the length of the penis during phalloprosthetics. The new MaxPol implants (collagen matrix) for increasing the thickness of the penis have received European registration and can be used for men with insufficient penis thickness.
On April 11-12, 2019, the 4th Emirates urological forum was held in Dubai (UAE), within the framework of which a Middle East master class on male health was held, during which the world’s leading urologists gave video lectures on the restoration of male health.
The Kharkiv Regional Nephro-Urological Center was represented by Associate Professor Alexander Knigavko with two reports on the treatment of veno-occlusive erectile dysfunction and the latest methods of Peyronie’s disease treatment.
For the treatment of veno-occlusive erectile dysfunction, which is more common in young people with unstable erection and bilateral varicocele, a unique method of ligation of pathological shunts with injection of autologous stem cells, which recreates the mechanism of erection retention, has been proposed. The report received an award for the best foreign work and a standing ovation from the audience. «Amazing work!» Said Steve Wilson, a leading penile prosthesis implantologist. «Your technique can avoid many penile replacements in young people.»
The second presentation dealt with the features of the surgical treatment of Peyronie’s disease in patients with large plaques. In America and European countries, such patients are usually fitted with penile prostheses of the penis on which plaque modeling is performed. Our technique for removing plaque with the selection of an optimal graft allows you to restore an independent erection and a smooth penis in such patients without resorting to penile prosthetics.
On September 17-21, 2019 in Tbilisi, Georgia, an international conference «Fundamental and Practical Andrology» was held. The conference brought together over 400 well-known andrologists from the CIS countries, the Middle East and Europe.
Kharkiv Regional Clinical Center of Urology and Nephrology named. V.I. Shapoval was represented by Associate Professor Knigavko with a reports «Bilateral varicocele and venous hyperemia of the prostate in the etiology of premature ejaculation.»
The report aroused interest, since it allows to solve the complex problem of secondary premature ejaculation and congestive chronic prostatitis by means of a special modification of the microsurgical operation varicocelectomy by Marmar which decreases venous hyperemia, swelling and pathological sensation of prostate
The second report on the surgical treatment of urethral stricture and the possibilities of replacement urethroplasty of long urethral strictures using buccal epithelium also caused a great discussion.
On August 19-26, 2018, fellowship of the leading researcher of the Laboratory of Andrology and Human Reproduction of the Kharkov National Medical University Alexander Vladimirovich Knigavko took place in one of the leading clinics in Finland, in the city hospital in Turku. Foreign partners familiarized the Ukrainian delegation with their methods of treating surgical patients, including urological ones. It is noteworthy that Finnish doctors operate on such an acute surgical pathology as appendicitis only in the case of opened purulent forms, which is quite rare. In common serous forms, antibiotics (ciprofloxacin) are simply prescribed and monitored. This method avoids surgery in more than 70% of cases. Only 28% of patients require surgical treatment with this method.
At the same time, in Finland, as well as throughout Scandinavia, there is a very high percentage of male infertility. It is believed that this is due to the high content of dioxin and other biologically persistent organochlorine substances in fish caught in the Baltic Sea and insufficient diagnosis of latent infections of the genital tract. The Finnish colleagues were very interested in the methods of the Kharkov Laboratory of Andrology and Human Reproduction to increase male fertility.
June 29 — July 10, 2017 in Spain, at the Barcelona International Business School, an internship was held by the leading researcher of our clinic, Alexander Knigavko.

The greatest interest was aroused by reports on the treatment of retrograde ejaculation by introducing autocollagen with autologous stem cells-neuroblasts to restore fertility in men with aspermia and retrograde ejaculation on the background of polyneuropathy and diabetes mellitus. The report on the treatment of delayed ejaculation by microinjection of autologous stem cells — neuroblasts into the head and trunk of the penis to restore sensitivity — also caused a great discussion.
