Many important articles on a variety of women's health topics were published in 1999. We chose articles that addressed issues common or unique to women and those whose results could potentially change clinical practice. The main areas of focus for this year's Update are coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, breast cancer prevention, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and oral contraceptives, weight loss, cancer screening, domestic violence, and sexual dysfunction. Many of the articles focus on prevention of disease: What is the role of raloxifene in prevention of osteoporosis? What are the best choices for breast cancer prevention? Should we screen for ovarian cancer? Is lifestyle activity modification useful in obese women? Other articles that focus on domestic violence and the prevalence of sexual dysfunction emphasize the importance of physician education and awareness in discussing these topics with our patients. Each article has important implications for the practicing internist.
