DISCLOSURES: The American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, and American Urological Association make every effort to avoid any actual or potential conflicts of interest that may arise as a result of an outside relationship or a personal, professional, or business interest of a member of the writing panel. Specifically, all members of the writing group are required to complete and submit a Disclosure Questionnaire showing all such relationships that may be perceived as real or potential conflicts of interest.

The reviewers had no conflicts of interest to disclose.
These disclosures represent the relationships of writing group members that may be perceived as actual or reasonably perceived conflicts of interest as reported on the Disclosure Questionnaire, which all members of the writing group are required to complete and submit. A relationship is considered to be “significant” when 1) the person receives $10,000 or more during any 12-month period or 5% or more of the person's gross income, or 2) the person owns 5% or more of the voting stock or share of the entity or owns $10,000 or more of the fair market value of the entity. A relationship is considered to be “modest” when it is less than “significant” under the preceding definition. *Modest. †Significant.
