Atlanta-Among the more than 1,700 scientific papers presented at the 2006 AUA annual meeting, the focus was less on new medical or procedural innovations than on the benefits and risks of current tests and therapies. Attendees learned, for example, about the potential role of combination drug therapy in treating both BPH and erectile dysfunction, the benefit of lemonade as an alternative for stone formers, good news concerning the safety of testosterone replacement therapy, and not such good news about complications from sling procedures.

These topics were just a few highlighted during the meeting's popular closing session: the take-home messages. In the article that follows, Urology Times brings you our coverage of the take-home messages, many of which you can apply to your practice today. Messages have been edited for space, and those of particular interest have been highlighted by the editors.
