Analyzing Annals: Clinical Guideline: Urinary Incontinence
This guideline on the nonsurgical management of urinary incontinence (UI) recommends pelvic floor muscle training in women with stress UI, bladder training in women with urgency UI, and both in women with mixed UI.

Subspecialty Careers: Interventional Cardiology
From the Latin word intervenire, “to come between,” Interventional Cardiology is the branch of Cardiology responsible for catheter-based interventions in the management of ischemic heart disease, congenital heart disease, and acquired valvular disease.More
In the Clinic: Stable Ischemic Heart Disease
Stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD) affects many millions of Americans, with associated annual costs measured in tens of billions of dollars. It is a leading cause of death in the United States.
In the Clinic is a monthly feature in Annals of Internal Medicine that focuses on practical management of patients with common clinical conditions. It offers evidence-based answers to frequently asked questions about screening, prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and patient education and provides physicians with tools to improve the quality of care. Many internal medicine clerkship directors recommend this series of articles for students on the internal medicine ambulatory rotation.
