Orlando, FL-In its 103rd installment, the AUA annual meeting introduced urologists to interesting research about relationships between urologic conditions and other significant health issues. This held true across several disease states, including prostate cancer (low cholesterol may lead to lower PSA), stone disease (uric acid stones may indicate arteriosclerosis), lower urinary tract symptoms (men with LUTS are at increased risk for falls), and infertility (infertile men may be predisposed to certain cancers).

No single paper or presentation stood high above the 2,100-plus abstracts and videos showcased here. The meeting's annual take-home messages were proof, however, that the AUA meeting ranks at the top of scientific forums in the field of urology. Urology Times' editors bring you our coverage of these meeting highlights, grouped in 27 topic areas. Messages have been edited for space, and those of particular interest have been highlighted.
