The usual treatment of venous ulcers may be associated with statins intake. Antibiotics have only marginal utility in acute bronchitis. The prescription of paracetamol seems to have no benefit in the treatment of acute lower back pain. The absence of antithrombotic prophylaxis for distal fractures of the lower limbs seems to be safe for patients' health. The treatment of atraumatic lesions of the rotator cuff in patients >55 years should remain conservative. Arthroscopic surgery of non-traumatic tear of the medial meniscus seems to have no benefit. The family environment seems to be a protective factor to the mental health of adolescents. Screening for colorectal cancer in patients >75 years would save lives.
