AIM: Impairment of sexual functioning may have a significant impact on the person's quality of life. Despite the high prevalence of female sexual dysfunctions, it is still not clear what are the effective treatments for these disorders. The aim of this critical review is to provide an update on the efficacy of psychological treatments for female sexual dysfunctions. METHOD: A thorough literature search was performed, using electronic database (PubMed and PsychINFO) and manual searches, selecting articles in English and Italian language published in peer-reviewed journals.

The term "unconventional medicine" refers to a remarkably heterogeneous group of theories and practices (homeopathy, herbal medicine, acupuncture, etc.) different from those peculiar to the dominant health system of a particular society. An unifying characteristic of these practices is that they have not been scientifically tested and that unconventional practitioners largely deny the need for such testing.

Reumatismo

Use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for chronic conditions has increased in recent years. CAM is immensely popular for musculoskeletal conditions and patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) frequently try CAM. This review summarises the trial data for or against CAM as a symptomatic treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Collectively the evidence demonstrates that some CAM modalities show significant promise, e.g. acupuncture, diets, herbal medicine, homoeopathy, massage, supplements.

We report the natural history, the clinical, radiological, echocardiographic and hemodynamic pattern of a living sixty-three year old man with tetralogy of Fallot and cyanosis since birth. We discuss the possible circulatory adaptations which allowed exceptional survival up to the seventh decade: it is the sixth case reported in the literature.

Recenti Progressi in Medicina

The 20th century will be remembered for its technological and scientific discoveries and for the exceptional changes in the demographic structure brought about by these and the improved economic and social conditions; in fact, the reduction in the birth rate and a fall in the death rate have caused an increase in the population of the elderly.

Recenti Progressi in Medicina

Cigarette smoking has been clearly linked to the most common causes of death in the elderly and contributes to the higher death rate and disability rate associated with many chronic illnesses that are common in this age group. The combination of smoking along with other risk factors like hypertension and diabetes increase high frequency disease, and disability as well as adding to an increase in mortality rate.
