Willy Gregoir Medal

Mr. Harold Hopkins (GB) received the first Willy Gregoir Medal. The medal’s design was based on a profile sketch made by Prof. John Blandy.

A great deal of the discussion focused on vesicoureteral reflux in pediatric urology. For the first time a debate was held on the treatment of benign hypertrophia of the prostate, hyperthermia, the use of lasers and urethal prostheses.
