Update in hospital internal medicine (2007): a selection

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2008, vol. 4, no. 142, p. 279-282, 284-288
Abstract This paper summarizes several important studies published during the previous year that have an impact on the practice of inpatient internal medicine, because they either modify or reinforce current practices. The selected domains include the treatment of thrombo-embolic disease, the role of implantable defibrillators in left cardiac failure, the management of cerebro-vascular disease, of community-acquired pneumonia, and of type 2 diabetes, as well as the prevention of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhosis and of osteoporosis fractures. Some data stimulating our reflection on the integration of medical education in health care centres and on the validity of some scientific publications are also presented.
