Alcoholism is a common condition and frequently clinicians are forced to confront its complications in general hospital settings. Within each country, there is an excellent correlation between the level of alcohol consumption and the prevalence of alcohol-related harm. In fact, the consumption in Europe is 10.9 liters of pure alcohol per person per year[1].

Nowadays, doctors face a challenging medico-legal environment. This is also the case of urologists with many legal claims against them. The fact that urology is a surgical specialty is not encouraging, surgical specialties being situated on top of the chain.

Pathological modifications of the large joints (knee, hip, shoulder, ankle) due to trauma and/or inflammation are a common occurrence, which increases as the general population gets simultaneously older and more active[1]. Progress in this therapeutic area has not kept up with the increased need for more effi cient treatments, an overall consideration which includes efficacy in reducing discomfort, cost of treatments, presence of adverse reactions and the long term effects on the function and structure of the joints, which may prompt the need for repeated or different treatments.

Rheumatoid arthritis affects women more frequently, aged 40 to 70, three times more frequently than men. Bone changes occurring in people with rheumatoid arthritis increase the incidence of fractures in these patients [1]. In the complex fractures of the proximal 3 of the humerus, the treatment of choice is represented by open reduction and osteosynthesis. This method can also be applied minivasively, known as minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO)[2,3]. [...]
