[Articles] Opioid versus opioid-free analgesia after surgical discharge: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised trials. thelancet.com Findings from this meta-analysis support that opioid prescribing at surgical discharge does not reduce pain intensity but does increase adverse events.

Menopause is a natural part of ageing that affects 50% of the population. Yet, this fact is not reflected in many societies, and their health systems.
