KARACHI-The first phase of the International Pediatric Urology Conference, which held a series of surgical demonstrations concluded here. The session was a part of the four-day conference jointly organized by the Asian Pacific Association of Pediatrics (APAPU) and SIUT (Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation). Some three hundred delegates including some internationally renowned surgeons took part in the deliberations beside surgeons from various parts of the country.
