KeyMed Ltd and their head of Surgical Business, Peter Hawkins, have been kind enough to allow us to place the latest KeyMed instruction course on endoscope maintenance on the Urolink website. We are extremely grateful to KeyMed, with whom Urolink has a very long and strong relationship, for their help in making this information available to the international community.

A comprehensive manual about the different types of endoscopes, their design and constraints. An essential primer about urological endoscopy.
