Gerard D. Henry, MD, presented “Next-Generation Sequencing of DNA in Prosthetic Urology: Promising Early Results” for the Grand Rounds in Urology audience in May, 2020.

In part one of this presentation, Gerard D. Henry, MD, a urologist with Ark-La-Tex Urology in Bossier City, Louisiana, discusses pathogen identification using next-generation sequencing (NGS) in a urology-based setting. He goes on to describe the utility of PCR+NGS, and details several case-studies demonstrating its superior performance compared to traditional culture.

In part two of this presentation, Dr. Henry summarizes his upcoming AUA paper on a study he led looking at the performance of next-generation sequencing in 101 patients following an inflatable penile prosthesis procedure.
