REVIEW ARTICLES

Hip and Pelvis Injuries in Runners
Careful Evaluation and Tailored Management

Kara H. Browning, MD

Exercise Rehabilitation for Cardiac Patients
A Beneficial but Underused Therapy
Cardiac rehabilitation has great physical and mental benefits for heart patients, but, unfortunately, the intervention is greatly underused. Here's how patients can maintain a long-term maintenance program at home.
Paul D. Thompson, MD


CASE REPORT

Fractures in Active Patients With Transplanted Organs

Javier Maquirriain, MD


ORIGINAL RESEARCH
