Posted: April 8, 2020

Despite the cancellation of our annual meeting in New Orleans, we wanted to recognize the hard work of the residents and faculty members who were scheduled to present their abstracts at the meeting. The main goal of our Section continues to be resident and member education, and we have published these abstracts on our website.

In addition, those abstracts that were accepted for presentation have been published in the April issue of the Journal of Urology. The surgical videos are accessible online for AUA members at no charge. You can view the videos and learn more on the AUA Virtual Education site.
