CLINICAL JOURNAL OF SPORT MEDICINE


Time to rethink the Zurich Guidelines?
Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine
The consensus statement on concussion in sport, commonly referred to as the Zurich Guidelines, has become one of the cornerstone references regarding the diagnosis and management of this syndrome. The guidelines process has increased medical and public awareness of this significant condition. However, the current construct of concussion as delineated in these guidelines is increasingly untenable. The problems with the guidelines include a lack of diagnostic specificity, management strategies that are not evidence based, and rehabilitation goals that are not attainable. Given these problems, the Zurich Guidelines cannot be endorsed.

Patellofemoral osteoarthritis is prevalent and associated with worse symptoms and function after hamstring tendon autograft ACL reconstruction
British Journal of Sports Medicine
Knee osteoarthritis frequently develops after anterior cruciate ligament injury, with personal, societal and financial impacts in young adults. Restoration of knee stability with an ACL reconstruction does not reduce the rate of radiographic OA development or improve short-term or long-term symptom outcomes. Indeed, an ACLR may even propagate the development of knee OA.

Before students start sports, some St. Louis schools do baseline concussion test
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
It was go time. The Clayton Greyhounds and the Ladue Rams were in the regional soccer playoffs, and the neighboring high school rivals were competing hard for bragging rights. Clayton sophomore Sam Schneider was playing striker, a key scoring position constantly under attack by defenders. The game was intensely physical, and Sam took four hard falls and pushes to the ground. But he kept playing. Not once did anyone think Sam had suffered a concussion, because nobody on the sidelines saw him take a hit to the head.

Curlers more likely to hurt themselves than lugers, speed skaters
The Washington Post
Curlers may be sporting the wildest pants of any event at the Olympic Games. But they are at risk for more than being flagged by the fashion police. Four percent of the sport’s competitors saw injuries, according to a survey of injuries at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Based solely on injury rates, that made curling more dangerous than six other winter sports, including speed skating, freestyle moguls, luge, and biathlon.
