9101. Recovery from mild head injury in sports: evidence from serial functional magnetic resonance imaging studies in male athletes. (Abstract)

Recovery from mild head injury in sports: evidence from serial functional magnetic resonance imaging studies in male athletes. To examine functional brain activation patterns before and after postconcussive symptoms (PCS) resolution.Prospective serial study with male athletes using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).Hospital laboratory and imaging facility.9 symptomatic concussed athletes who experienced persisting PCS at least 1 month postinjury and 6 healthy athletes.All athletes (...) filled out a PCS checklist and underwent an fMRI session during which they performed a working-memory task.Behavioral outcomes were response speed and accuracy on the working memory tasks performed during the fMRI session. Functional imaging outcomes were blood oxygen level-dependent fMRI activation patterns associated with a working memory task.: There was no difference in behavioral performance between the groups. Despite normal structural MRI findings, all symptomatic concussed athletes initially

and the more specific diagnoses of neck fractures, dislocations, contusions, sprains, strains, and lacerations occurring nationally from 1990 to 1999. These data were combined with yearly participation figures to generate rates of injury presenting to emergency departments for each sport.There were an estimated 5038 neck injuries from ice hockey, 19,341 from soccer, and 114 706 from American football. These could be broken down as follows: 4964 contusions, sprains, or strains from ice hockey, 17,927 from (...) soccer, and 104 483 from football; 105 neck fractures or dislocations from ice hockey, 214 from soccer, and 1588 from football; 199 neck lacerations for ice hockey, 0 for soccer, and 621 for football. The rates for total neck injuries and combined neck contusions, sprains, or strains were higher for football than for ice hockey or soccer in all years for which data were available.The rate of neck injury in the United States was higher in football than in ice hockey or soccer in the time period

research laboratory.High-school and collegiate athletes with a concussion.Preseason baseline headache, PTH, test-day.A Graded Symptom Checklist (GSC) was used to assess symptoms. The Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics (ANAM) and the Standardized Assessment of Concussion (SAC) were used to assess neuropsychological function and mental status. The Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) was used to assess postural stability.Both baseline headache groups displayed a higher symptom endorsement (...) on overall neuropsychological performance, reaction time, and working memory (P < 0.05). Deficits were observed for all ANAM measures except simple reaction time 1 (SRT 1) and match to sample subacutely and improved over time (P < 0.05). The SAC yielded an interaction (P < 0.05) for baseline headache. The BESS yielded no significant findings.Clinicians should consider headache when assessing concussion and during preseason baseline assessments because headache may affect symptom presence and other

The most prevalent diagnoses were head contusion and ankle sprain. On average, 78% of injuries were caused by contact with another player. However, a significantly higher percentage of noncontact (57%) versus contact injuries (37%) was expected to prevent the player from participating in his or her sport

respiratory infections and dermatologic disorders, or multiple visits for concussions. Football accounted for 22% of all physician encounters, more than any other sport (P < .05). Per capita, men and women sought care at an equal rate. In contrast, 10% of physician encounters with the general pool of undergraduates were for musculoskeletal diagnoses. Student athletes did not require a greater number of physician encounters than did the general undergraduate pool of students on a per capita (...) basis.Intercollegiate team physicians primarily treat musculoskeletal injuries that do not require surgery. General medical care is often single evaluations of common conditions and repeat evaluations for concussions.

The majority of injuries lasted less than 1 week (60.2%), contusions were the predominant injury type (30.6%, P < .05), and the upper leg was the site most often injured (24.5%, P < .05).Those players younger than 14 years incurred more injuries in training and sustained more growth-related overuse disorders

Treatment of muscle injuries by local administration of autologous conditioned serum: a pilot study on sportsmen with muscle strains. Muscle injuries represent a major part of sports injuries and are a challenging problem in traumatology. Strain injuries are the most common muscle injuries after contusions. These injuries can lead to significant pain and disability causing time to be lost to training and competition. Despite the frequency of strain injuries the treatment available is limited

documented injuries with an injury rate of 23.6 per 100 fight participations. Most common reported injuries were lacerations and upper limb injuries. Severe concussion rate was 15.4 per 1000 athlete exposures, or 3% of all matches. No deaths or critical sports-related injuries resulted from any of the regulated matches during the study period. Age, weight and fight experience did not statistically increase the likelihood of injuries after controlling for other covariates.Injury rates in regulated

for hip protectors for elderly.The results of the survey found that contusions and abrasions were observed most often for all players. Fractures and arthritis were only reported by amateur players, whereas bursitis was more frequently observed by professional players. Amateurs have a significantly higher risk of injury than professional players, and the higher injury risk during training is significantly higher compared with the injury risk during a match. No difference of the injury risk was found

9118. A prospective randomised trial of tourniquet in varicose vein surgery. Full Text available with Trip Pro

A prospective randomised trial of tourniquet in varicose vein surgery. A prospective randomised trial of 50 patients was carried out to assess the autoclavable Lofquist cuff (Boazal, Sweden) as a tourniquet in varicose vein surgery and determine the effect on bleeding, bruising, cosmesis and patient pain and activity. Patients undergoing unilateral long saphenous vein ligation, stripping and avulsions were randomised to tourniquet or no tourniquet. Lofquist cuffs were applied after inflation (...) to 120 mmHg to the upper thigh for the duration of the surgery. Varicose vein grade, duration of surgery, blood loss, extent of bruising at 7 days, pain and activity scores over the first week, and wound complications and cosmetic result at 6 weeks were recorded. Patients' age, sex, and varicose vein grade were similar in the two groups. Peroperative blood loss (median, range) was significantly reduced in the tourniquet group (0 ml, 0-20 ml) compared to the no tourniquet group (125 ml, 20-300; P

Topical diclofenac patch relieves minor sports injury pain: results of a multicenter controlled clinical trial. Sports-related soft tissue injuries, such as sprains, strains, and contusions, are a common painful condition. Current treatment includes oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which have a high incidence of intolerable gastrointestinal side effects. Topically applied drugs have the potential to act locally in the soft tissues without systemic effects. This study assessed
