Coital death.


Generally speaking one can state that there exists insufficient information to be alarmed about coital death; indeed, there are almost no studies known about coital death of heart patients. All the same an epidemiologic research is absolutely necessary for profylaxis of heart attacks caused by sexual activity, even more whilst the present population shows an increased rate of arteriosclerosis and disposes over more spare time. It is remarkable that apart from medico-legal practicians, cardiologists and revalidation doctors, other disciplines as psychiatry and sexuology, still haven't paid any attention to the problem of coital death. It certainly is high time to draw this phenomenon out of its taboo-sphere.
