The 1st World Congress of Paediatric Cardiology was held in London, United Kingdom, in 1980, organised by Dr Jane Somerville and Prof. Fergus Macartney. The idea was that of Jane Somerville, who worked with enormous energy and enthusiasm to bring together paediatric cardiologists and surgeons from around the world. The 2nd World Congress of Paediatric Cardiology took place in New York in 1985, organised by Bill Rashkind, Mary Ellen Engle, and Eugene Doyle. The 3rd World Congress of Paediatric Cardiology was held in Bangkok, Thailand, in 1989, organised by Chompol Vongraprateep...

OBJECTIVE: To create a novel "at-home" preresidency preparatory adjunct for medical students entering surgical residency. DESIGN: Preparatory resources were mailed to match medical students before residency matriculation in 2015. This included "how-to" videos, low-cost models, and surgical instruments for 5 "stations" (arterial blood gas analysis, anatomy and imaging knowledge, knot tying ability, and suturing dexterity) of our program's biannual general surgery intern objective assessment activity (Surgical Olympics: total 13 stations, 10 points each)...

BACKGROUND & PURPOSE: Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome (CECS) causes significant exercise related pain secondary to increased intra-compartmental pressure (ICP) in the lower extremities. CECS is most often treated with surgery with minimal information available on non-operative approaches to care. This case report presents a case of CECS successfully managed with physical therapy. STUDY DESIGN: Case report. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 34-year-old competitive triathlete experienced bilateral anterior and posterior lower leg pain measured with a numerical pain rating scale of 7/10 at two miles of running...

Rupture of the Achilles tendon is an increasingly common injury, particularly in physically active males, and current evidence favors minimally invasive surgical repair. We describe the case of a 36-year-old male elite bobsled athlete with complete rupture of the Achilles tendon. He was treated with surgical repair of the ruptured tendon using an innovative, minimally invasive procedure based on an internal bracing concept and was able to undergo early mobilization and aggressive physiotherapy rehabilitation...

BACKGROUND: Anterior tibial stress fractures are associated with high rates of delayed union and nonunion, which can be particularly devastating to a professional athlete who requires rapid return to competition. Current surgical treatment strategies include intramedullary nailing, which has satisfactory rates of fracture union but an associated risk of anterior knee pain. Anterior tension band plating is a biomechanically sound alternative treatment for these fractures. HYPOTHESIS: Tension band plating of chronic anterior tibial stress fractures leads to rapid healing and return to physical activity and avoids the anterior knee pain associated with intramedullary nailing...

BACKGROUND: Surgical training is changing and evolving as time, pressure, and legislative demands continue to mount on trainee surgeons. A paradigm change in the focus of training has resulted in experts examining the cognitive steps needed to perform complex and often highly pressurized surgical procedures. OBJECTIVE: To provide an overview of the collective evidence on cognitive task analysis (CTA) as a surgical training method, and determine if CTA improves a surgeon's performance as measured by technical and nontechnical skills assessment, including precision, accuracy, and operative errors...

BACKGROUND: From June 2001 to May 2013 four selected patients with an isolated and old Lisfranc's ligament rupture were treated at the Trauma Department of the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus in Dresden with an anatomical repair of the ligament using half of the extensor hallucis longus tendon. This kind of graft 7 cm in length was used in three cases and in the fourth case the whole extensor hallucis brevis tendon was used. Of the four patients three were female with an average age of 28...

BACKGROUND: Surgery interns' training has historically been weighted toward patient care, operative observation, and sleeping when possible. With more protected free time and less clinical time, real educational hours for trainees in 2013 are precious. METHODS: We created a 20-session (3 hours each) simulation curriculum (with pre- and post-tests) and a 24/7 online audiovisual (AV) curriculum for surgery interns. Friday morning simulation sessions emphasize operative skills and judgment...

BACKGROUND: Although lumbar discectomy for treatment of lumbar disc herniation in the general population generally improves patients' pain, function, and validated outcomes scores, results of treatment in elite athletes may differ because of the unique performance demands required of competitive athletes. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We performed a systematic review to answer the following questions: (1) What proportion of athletes return to play after lumbar discectomy, and what is the effect of sport? (2) What is the expected recovery time after lumbar discectomy in elite athletes? (3) What is the expected career length and performance of elite athletes after lumbar discectomy? METHODS: We performed a systematic literature review of articles of lumbar discectomy in the elite athlete population through the MEDLINE and EMBASE databases from 1947 to 2013...

We report the case of a 31-year-old Olympic fencer, affected by complex degenerative lesions of the knee due to subtotal meniscal loss and patellar overload. The patient underwent a biological knee reconstruction including the treatment of the articular surface combined with lateral meniscal allograft transplantation and patellar realignment. This complex surgical approach significantly improved the knee function and reduced the pain. The athlete was able to get back to official competition 17 months after surgery...

A 26-year-old Olympic wrestling athlete presented with a pectoralis major muscle injury, glenohumeral instability and acromioclavicular joint dislocation separately. The patient underwent surgical treatment to repair these injuries. The pectoralis major muscle was reconstructed with a semitendinosus tendon graft using the endobutton technique, as described by Pochini et al. Treatment of the traumatic anterior instability was performed using the technique described by Bristow-Latarjet, and the acromioclavicular joint dislocation was repaired using the modified technique of Weaver-Dunn with the aid of an anchor...

We report the case of an Olympic taekwondo athlete with an atypical bilateral intermittent claudication that represented a handicap in her performance during competition fight. Diagnosis of chronic compartment syndrome was established by confirmation of compartment hypertension and the patient was submitted to fasciectomy. Recurrence of symptoms like numbness or tingling after 6 months raised the suspicion of deep compartmental hypertension that, once confirmed, was treated by a repeat deep fasciectomy. New symptoms appeared 4 months after surgery but no hypertension in the compartment was detected...

This review will mainly focus the last 10 years of the society's history because several important changes occurred during this relatively short period. The most important was the creation of the first clinical sports medicine department in Luxembourg in 2004. This modern new infrastructure was made possible by the recruitment of 2 highly competent sports physicians, the excellent collaboration of the governing board of the Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg (CHL) and the support of the sports minister. In 2008 the new department received the label "Medical Olympic Centre of Luxembourg"...

Plasma volume expanders comprise a heterogeneous group of substances used in medicine that are intravenously administered in cases of great blood loss owing to surgery or medical emergency. These substances, however, can also be used to artificially enhance performance of healthy athletes in sport activities, and to mask the presence of others substances. These practices are considered doping, and are therefore prohibited by the International Olympic Committee and the World Antidoping Agency. Consequently, drug testing procedures are essential...

The incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury remains high in young athletes. Because female athletes have a much higher incidence of ACL injuries in sports such as basketball and team handball than male athletes, the IOC Medical Commission invited a multidisciplinary group of ACL expert clinicians and scientists to (1) review current evidence including data from the new Scandinavian ACL registries; (2) critically evaluate high-quality studies of injury mechanics; (3) consider the key elements of successful prevention programmes; (4) summarise clinical management including surgery and conservative management; and (5) identify areas for further research...

A case history of a 32-year-old female Olympic pole vaulter is reported. Two months after endoscopic surgery for chronic Achilles tendinopathy, she developed a keloid lesion on the hindfoot area. She was treated with corticosteroids, topical and intralesional injections. A satisfactory result was obtained, and the athlete was able to resume her competitive activity at 5 months after surgery. Keloid pathogenesis, treatment, and prevention are briefly discussed.
