REVIEW ARTICLES

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Redefining Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and Causalgia
A better understanding of the sympathetic nervous system's role in pain conditions such as reflex sympathetic dystrophy and causalgia has led to a terminology change as well as new insights on diagnostic criteria, testing methods, and treatment.
Salim M. Hayek, MD, PhD; Nagy A. Mekhail, MD, PhD

The Ottawa Knee Rule
Avoiding Unnecessary Radiographs in Sports
Though the Ottawa knee rule was validated in emergency departments, its applicability to many sports settings is often appropriate and can cut costs, improve communication with patients, and return patients to play sooner.
Paul J. Nugent, DO

Sports Dermatology Series
Athletic Skin Injuries
Combating Pressure and Friction
Scrapes, chafing, and blisters are causes of athletic friction—from the active patient's sweaty skin or from sports surfaces or equipment. Prompt treatment can give patients a comfort edge during activities.
Rodney S. W. Basler, MD; Christopher M. Hunzeker, MD; Michael A. Garcia

CASE REPORT

Patellar Tendinosis
Acute Patellar Tendon Rupture and Jumper's Knee
Repetitive stress, particularly among athletes in jumping sports, previous patellar tendon injury, and the effects of aging are risk factors for patellar tendinosis. Early intervention with stretching and plyometric training may prevent ruptures.
