Washington- Public health issues-obesity, diet, smoking, and sleep disorders, among others-and their links to a range of benign and malignant urologic diseases made headlines at the 2011 AUA annual meeting in Washington. In particular, research focused on the impact of lifestyle factors on stone disease and prostate cancer.

Also sharing the spotlight were two new drugs for advanced prostate cancer: one for men with castration-resistant disease progressing after chemotherapy and one for preventing skeletal-related events. Researchers unveiled impressive study data on both agents.

These topics were among those that emerged from more than 2,300 abstracts and videos presented over the course of the 6-day meeting, culminating with the take-home messages on the final day. This article highlights the "Best of AUA," the meeting's essential take-home points.
