Take Home Message: Cardiac screening can identify some high-risk athletes, but no screening strategy is likely to be perfect. Post by Jane McDevitt.

The debate lingers about the use of cardiac screening to reduce the risk of sudden death among athletes. This debate is impaired by the lack of systematic registries, which could help estimate the incidence of sudden death and impact of screening. Malhotra and colleagues sought to determine the incidence and causes of sudden cardiac death among adolescent players in the English Football Association (soccer), which started a cardiac screening program in 1996. http://ow.ly/og8P30lQyYN

Take Home Message: A professional athlete with 6 or 7 days rest between soccer matches may be less likely to have a muscular injury during a match than a player with 3 or fewer days between matches. Post by Kris Fayock.
Numerous investigators have studied the possible relationship of the time between matches and injury rates in professional football (soccer). For example, prior researchers showed that if a team plays 2 matches within 4 days compared to 6 or more days they are more likely to have greater muscular injury rates. However, prior studies have small sample sizes or study teams instead of individuals, which can make interpreting the findings challenging. Hence, the authors analyzed the associations between match congestion and match injury rates at an individual player level in a large population of professional soccer players. http://ow.ly/4Zi430lMP2x
