REVIEW ARTICLES

Cardiovascular Risks of Exercise
Avoiding Sudden Death and Myocardial Infarction
The unspoken fear of dying during exercise might be one reason sedentary patients hesitate to work out. Although exercise-related complications are rare, physical activity is indeed a coronary plaque disrupter, and vigorous exercise is more likely than moderate activity to provoke a cardiac event. Physicians can recommend several steps to help lower the risk.
Paul D. Thompson, MD


CLINICAL QUIZ

Persistent Ankle Pain After a 'Simple Sprain'
A 19-year-old female equestrian, treated for an ankle sprain 6 months prior, came to a sports medicine clinic with chronic pain when walking, swelling with extended weight bearing, and intermittent popping. Repeat radiographs led to the correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
Wayne Stokes, MD; G. Brett Western, MD
