from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
They are young, strong, competitive athletes, in top physical condition. Yet about 90 of them drop dead every year, often in the heat of competition, victims of sudden cardiac death. Now a new study suggests that there is a cost-effective way to lower the death rate significantly: screening athletes with an electrocardiogram. But starting such a screening program in the United States is controversial.  More

When Beth Pouk is on the sidelines at a Hononegah High School basketball game, she not necessarily watching for ball-handling technique or who is sinking the most 3-pointers. "We're watching, not the ball, but the ankles, the knees and the elbows," she said. Pouk is one of three Beloit Health System athletic trainers who show up at high school sport events at six area high schools. Their job is to keep an eye out for student athlete injuries and, hopefully, preventing those injuries from happening.  More

Battling a Biceps Injury
from Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
People who suffer from injuries to the distal biceps tendon may benefit from earlier surgical intervention and new surgical techniques, according to a review article published in the March 2010 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Located in the front of the elbow, the distal biceps tendon attaches to the lower end of the biceps muscle, and is responsible for two primary motions: allowing the elbow to bend and allowing the arm to turn the palm upward. The study reported individuals who undergo surgery soon after their injuries experience faster and more complete recoveries than patients who are treated nonsurgically, as well as those whose surgeries are delayed.

Obese Kids More Likely to Injure Legs, Ankles, Feet
from Reuters Health via Medline Plus    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Obese kids' injury patterns look different from those of their slimmer peers, a new study out in Pediatrics shows. Dr. Wendy J. Pomerantz of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Ohio, and her colleagues found obese children had more leg, ankle and foot injuries, but fewer injuries to the head and face, than normal-weight children. While the researchers had no information on how the children in their study were injured, they speculate that heavier kids may be more vulnerable to getting hurt while walking or running, while thinner kids may be more prone to engage in activities and sports that carry a risk of head injury.  More
