Many important articles on a variety of women's health topics were published in 1998. We chose the articles for this Update because of their implications for clinical practice in four areas: gynecology, risk factors for coronary artery disease, risk factors for and prevention of breast cancer, and osteoporosis. Some of the articles—such as Burgio and colleagues' study of incontinence—offer observations and practical advice, whereas others—such as Jick and colleagues' study of the association between use of obesity drugs and occurrence of heart disease—send a warning signal. Each article presents interesting and useful information for the internist. Although some of the articles have already been described in other Updates in this year's series, this Update concentrates on aspects of each published study that are of particular importance in the care of women.
