REVIEW ARTICLES

Overtraining
Making a Difficult Diagnosis and Implementing Targeted Treatment
Certain cardiac and hormonal indicators may help monitor overtraining. Treatment includes activity modification and targeting underlying depression.
Arja L.T. Uusitalo, MD, PhD

Articular Cartilage Injuries of the Knee

Dietary Androgen Supplements

Conrad P. Earnest, PhD

Sports and Marfan Syndrome
Awareness and Early Diagnosis Can Prevent Sudden Death

Flagging those who have the physical stigmata and listening for certain cardiac auscultation sounds are early diagnostic keys that help prevent deaths.
