Rehabilitation for the Postsurgical Orthopedic Patient Excerpt :

With detailed descriptions of orthopedic surgeries, Rehabilitation for the Postsurgical Orthopedic Patient, 3rd Edition provides current, evidence-based guidelines to designing effective rehabilitation strategies. Coverage of each condition includes an overview of the orthopedic patient's entire course of treatment from pre- to post-surgery. For each phase of rehabilitation, this book describes the postoperative timeline, the goals, potential complications and precautions, and appropriate therapeutic procedures. New to this edition are a full-color design and new chapters on disc replacement, cartilage replacement, hallux valgus, and transitioning the running athlete. Edited by Lisa Maxey and Jim Magnusson, and with chapters written by both surgeons and physical therapists, Rehabilitation for the Postsurgical Orthopedic Patient provides valuable insights into the use of physical therapy in the rehabilitation process. Comprehensive, evidence-based coverage provides an overview of the orthopedic patient's entire course of treatment from pre- to post-surgery, including a detailed look at the surgical procedures and therapy guidelines that can be used to design the appropriate rehabilitation programs. Case study vignettes with critical thinking questions help you develop critical reasoning skills. Indications and considerations for surgery describe the mechanics of the injury and the repair process so you can plan an effective rehabilitation program. Therapy guidelines cover each phase of rehabilitation with specifics as to the expected time span and goals for each phase. Evidence-based coverage includes the latest clinical research to support treatment decisions. Overview of soft tissue and bone healing considerations after surgery helps you understand the rationale behind the timelines for the various physical therapy guidelines. A Troubleshooting section in each chapter details potential pitfalls in the recovery from each procedure. Over 300 photos and line drawings

Epidemiology of Injury in Olympic Sports Excerpt :

This new volume in the Encyclopaedia of Sports Medicine series, published under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee, provides a state-of-the- art account of the epidemiology of injury across a broad spectrum of Olympic sports. The book uses the public health model in describing the scope of the injury problem, the associated risk factors, and in evaluating the current research on injury prevention strategies described in the literature. Epidemiology of Injury in Olympic Sports comprehensively covers what is known about the distribution and determinants of injury and injury rates in each sport. The editors and contributors have taken an evidence-based approach and adopted a uniform methodology to assess the data available. Each chapter is illustrated with tables which make it easy to examine injury factors between studies within a sport and between sports. With contributions from internationally renowned experts, this is an invaluable reference book for medical doctors, physical therapists and athletic trainers who serve athletes and sports teams, and for sports medicine scientists and healthcare professionals who are interested in the epidemiological study of injury in sports.

Operative Technique in Neonates and Infants Excerpt :

In conventional partial resection of parenchymatous organs significant bleeding is one of the main problems, especially in neonates and infants. The patients rapidly lose considerable amounts of their small blood volume. Laser light leads to photo thermal effects in tissue and causes coagulation, drying up, carbonization and evaporization, depending on the temperature. The neodymium Y AG laser emits nonvisible light in the near infrared with a wavelength of l. 0611m. This wavelength implies a relatively deep penetration into the tissue. This laser system, properly a coagulation laser, achieves its cutting effect by its high power density [9]. Because of thermal radiation in all directions, both sides of the section plane are coagulated as a positive side effect. Thus, in parenchymatous organs a combination of resection and sealing of the cut vessels and ducts, up to a limited diameter, is obtained. Laser Instruments We use a neodymium-YAG laser mediLas 2 (MBB-Medizintechnik, D-8012 Ottobrunn, Federal Republic of Germany), wavelength l. 0611m, maximal power output around 110 W (Fig. 1). Normally we prefer to work without tissue contact, Fig. l.

Sports Law in Switzerland Excerpt :

Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this practical analysis of sports law in Switzerland deals with the regulation of sports activity by both public authorities and private sports organizations. The growing internationalization of sports inevitably increases the weight of global regulation, yet each country maintains its own distinct regime of sports law and its own national and local sports organizations. Sports law at a national or organizational level thus gains a growing relevance in comparative law. The book describes and discusses both state-created rules and autonomous self-regulation regarding the variety of economic, social, commercial, cultural, and political aspects of sports activities. Self- regulation manifests itself in the form of by-laws, and encompasses organizational provisions, disciplinary rules, and rules of play. However, the trend towards more professionalism in sports and the growing economic, social and cultural relevance of sports have prompted an increasing reliance on legal rules adopted by public authorities. This form of regulation appears in a variety of legal areas, including criminal law, labour law, commercial law, tax law, competition law, and tort law, and may vary following a particular type or sector of sport. It is in this dual and overlapping context that such much-publicized aspects as doping, sponsoring and media, and responsibility for injuries are legally measured. This monograph fills a gap in the legal literature by giving academics, practitioners, sports organizations, and policymakers access to sports law at this specific level. Lawyers representing parties with interests in Switzerland will welcome this very useful guide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its value in the study of comparative sports law.

Schmerz und Sport Excerpt :

Sportliche Höchstleistungen werden heute oft nur noch unter Schmerzen erbracht und viele Sporttreibende leiden unter schmerzhaften Bewegungs- und Leistungseinschränkungen. Der mit großen Schmerzen verbundene Tod einer begabten Hochleistungssportlerin ging in jüngster Vergangenheit durch alle Medien. In diesem Buch wird erstmals der aktuelle Themenbereich Schmerz und Sport aus interdisziplinärer Sicht umfassend abgehandelt. Sportmediziner, Orthopäden, Physiologen, Schmerz- und Physiotherapeuten, Psychologen, Trainer und Sportler vermitteln in ihren Beiträgen wichtige Hinweise für eine richtige und schmerzfreie Sportausübung und eine interdisziplinäre schmerztherapeutische Versorgung der sporttreibenden Bevölkerung. Außerdem wird die Frage angesprochen, inwieweit es vertretbar ist, das physiologische Warnsignal Schmerz durch ärztliche und andere Maßnahmen auszuschalten. Ein aktuelles Buch zu einem aktuellen Thema.
