REVIEW ARTICLES

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
Practical Steps for Preventing Sudden Death
Keeping up-to-date on the most recent information on hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is important because current reports can offer new ways of identifying patients at risk and distinguishing HCM from athlete's heart. A case report provides a compelling example. One aspect that hasn't changed is the activity recommendation: Competitive sports are contraindicated with the possible exception of low-intensity options.
Barry J. Maron, MD

Infectious Mononucleosis
Ensuring a Safe Return to Sport
Though mononucleosis-related spleen rupture is rare, 80% of cases have occurred in young men who play contact sports. A 3-week disqualification, clinical evidence of improvement, and a graded return to activity can prevent this emergency and a relapse of symptoms.
John M. MacKnight, MD


ORIGINAL RESEARCH

Treatment of Exercise Incontinence With a Urethral Insert
A Pilot Study in Women
Researchers evaluated the effectiveness of an intraurethral device for treating exercise incontinence, a condition that's an exercise obstacle in nearly a third of adult women. In a trial of the device during unsupervised home-based exercise, average urine loss decreased from 20 g without the device to 2.6 g with the device. Patient monitoring and feedback indicate that the device is an effective, safe, and comfortable treatment for exercise incontinence.
