Based on research on stereotype threat and multiple identities, this work explores the beneficial effects of activating a positive social identity when a negative identity is salient on women's performance in sports. Further, in line with research on the effects of anxiety in sports, we investigate whether the activation of a positive social identity buffers performance from cognitive anxiety associated with a negative stereotype. Two experiments tested these predictions in field settings. Experiment 1 (N = 83) shows that the simultaneous activation of a positive (i...

Women are 3 times more likely to injure their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) while playing soccer than men. ACL injury prevention programs (IPPs) involving stretching and strengthening drills can reduce the incidence of ACL injury when incorporated into routine training. The rate of implementation among coaches is largely unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine the rate of implementation of ACL IPP, to identify factors that influence implementation, and to acquire information to assist in design dissemination and implementation strategies...

A woman aged 31 years presented to the emergency department after a minor head injury. She reported mild headache and a metallic taste in her mouth. Full neurologic examination was remarkable only for left-sided Horner syndrome. Left internal carotid artery dissection was confirmed on magnetic resonance imaging. She was treated with aspirin. Symptoms and signs persisted 3 months later, but there was no additional neurologic deficit. We stress the importance of early detection of Horner syndrome to minimize the risk of disabling stroke...

A 19-year-old woman presented with repeated episodes of haemoptysis and shortness of breath. Blood tests revealed iron deficiency anaemia and chest imaging studies showed bilateral lung opacities. In further laboratory tests and technical examination including bronchoalveolar lavage and transbronchial lung biopsy, pulmonary embolism, cardiac disease, and pulmonary vasculitis due to autoimmune disease were ruled out. Finally, a diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary haemosiderosis (IPH) was made in January 2008. The patient was treated with prednisone, azathioprine, and oral iron supplementation...

Sport is a social institution that perpetuates gendered ideologies in the wider society through appealing to discourses of the naturalness of men's privilege and domination in society. Heteronormativity regulates the roles, behaviours, appearances and sexualities of, and relationships between and among, women and men. Moreover, heteronormative discourses normalise a particular relationship between sex, gender and sexuality that posits woman/feminine/heterosexual (and man/masculine/heterosexual) as a natural order from which variance is considered a punishable deviance...

Two young patients, a 23-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman, without any risk factors for coronary artery disease, apart from the woman being a smoker, were admitted to our hospital because of acute myocardial infarction (MI) due to spontaneous dissection of a coronary artery (SDCA). The first patient developed acute chest pain while playing soccer. The second patient had unspecific chest pain in the preceding four weeks and was admitted after successful resuscitation with ventricular fibrillation. Both patients were treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention...

An 18-year-old woman who ran four times weekly and played competitive soccer was approximately 1 mile into her standard running route when she collapsed. At the scene, a bystander summoned help and began cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Emergency medical service personnel arrived and found the patient unresponsive. She had no pulse or spontaneous respirations and was generally cyanotic. CPR was continued and a rhythm strip obtained (figure 1). The patient was resuscitated and brought to a hospital emergency department...

An epidemiological analysis was carried out of 1,126 sports injuries covered by German occupational accident insurance at a small regional hospital over a period of six years, of which 86.6% were allotted to the sport at schools. The types of sport most frequently involved were general fitness sports (n = 486), soccer (n = 137), volleyball (n = 126), gymnastics (n = 125) and basketball (n = 121). In the general fitness sports (n = 228 women/girls, n = 258 men/boys), bruising injuries dominated (47%), followed by sprains (29%), mostly involving the upper extremities (53%)...

PURPOSE: Contact lenses have assisted the refractive correction of keratoconus since the 19th century. In these case reports, the authors describe their experience with a new soft contact lens design. METHODS: The Soft K is a new soft lens comprising a thick fenestrated design to fit in patients with mild to moderate corneal distortion and fitting problems or physical intolerance to rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lenses. Three eyes with mild keratoconus from two 25-year-old patients (one man and one woman) were fitted with the Soft K contact lens...

Three patients presented with patellar instability. On physical examination, the first patient, a 20-year-old male soccer player, reported pain at the medial insertion ofthe medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) after a traumatic patella luxation. He was successfully treated by MPFL reconstruction. The second patient, an 18-year-old woman, presented with patellofemoral pain. On physical examination, the patella could be luxated laterally over approximately half of its width. Conventional X-rays showed a crossing sign, indicating trochlear dysplasia...

In general, tibial plateau fractures are rarely associated with noncontact, twisting, injuries to the knee in athletics. A 23-year-old woman sustained a noncontact valgus injury to her left knee while playing indoor soccer. Evaluation on-site and the following morning revealed no deformity and only mild pain over the anterolateral tibial plateau. All stress tests of the knee were negative. A 2+ effusion was noted the day after injury, causing us to suspect an internal derangement of the left knee. A nondisplaced tibial plateau fracture was confirmed by radiographs...

The purpose of the study was to determine if inspiratory muscle training (IMT) would result in increased inspiratory muscle strength, reduced perception of exertional dyspnea, and improved measures of maximal exercise effort in an athlete with exercise-induced paradoxical vocal fold motion (PVFM). The participant, an 18-year-old woman, had a 2-year history of acute dyspnea with exertion during soccer games. Spirometry, transnasal flexible laryngoscopy, and patient history supported a PVFM diagnosis. The ABAB within-subject withdrawal design study comprised IMT treatment and withdrawal phases, each lasting 5 weeks...

Although most patients suffering from a coronary artery fistula remain asymptomatic during childhood and adolescence, many of them develop complications in adulthood due to volume overload, endocarditis or ischemia. Here we present a young woman surviving a sudden cardiac death due to myocardial ischemia with subsequent ventricular fibrillation caused by thrombosis of a coronary artery fistula deriving from the left main coronary artery. Parts of the thrombus had been embolized into the circumflex artery causing posterior myocardial infarction...

The purpose of this study was to examine organizational treatment discrimination (i.e., when members of a group receive fewer rewards, opportunities, or resources than they legitimately deserve based on job-related criteria) in the context of women's athletics. Data were collected from 170 assistant coaches of women's teams (i.e., women's basketball, softball, track, volleyball, soccer, and tennis). Results indicate that women's perceived work experiences and outcomes were comparable, and sometimes better, than those of men...

A unique feature of soccer is the purposeful use of the head for controlling, passing, and shooting a soccer ball. Some concern has been expressed in the literature on the cumulative effects of heading on soccer players. Certain neurophysiologic and neuropsychologic changes have been reported in current or retired players, with heading being blamed. A major factor that could influence some of the findings is a player's history of concussive episodes, which are known to influence brain function. These episodes can occur during aspects of the game other than heading...

This case report describes the clinical reasoning used to manage chronic left hip pain in a 21-year-old woman who was recreationally active. The patient had a history of possible congenital hip dysplasia (CHD) and known recurrent lateral (external) patellar subluxations on the left side. She complained of experiencing hip pain when walking, sitting, playing soccer, and doing "step aerobics." Hip range of motion (ROM), muscle force, and joint stability problems were assessed. Abnormal movement patterns were observed during gait and step aerobics...
