    Title Medical Coverage of Tennis Events.
    Date June 2006
    Journal Current Sports Medicine Reports

    Numerous considerations are involved in the coverage of a tennis event, much like other sporting competitions. Appropriate equipment within a tournament format is examined. The simultaneous play of multiple tennis matches requires rapid access to injured players and is facilitated by good communication. Medical time-outs present a unique challenge, and awareness of these rules is essential in providing care. Common musculoskeletal injuries specific to tennis are reviewed. With the potential for high temperatures and dehydration during tennis matches, heat illness is also considered.

    Title Ergogenic Drugs in Sports.
    Date August 1997
    Journal Clinics in Sports Medicine

    This article provides the practicing physician with an account of the commonly used ergogenic substances. Specific agents discussed include the following: stimulants, narcotic analgesics, anabolic-androgenic steroids, beta-blockers, diuretics, growth hormone, other peptide hormones, blood doping, and erythropoietin.

    Title Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Knee.
    Journal The Physician and Sportsmedicine

    Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) should be considered in young, active patients who have generalized or anterior knee pain. A careful physical exam includes a Wilson test, thigh girth measurements, diagnostic tunnel view radiographs, and other imaging studies as needed for grading and prognosis. Two case reports demonstrate the signs and symptoms of OCD. Treatment by primary care physicians with sports medicine training may be conservative if lesions are medial and in situ and if patients are not skeletally mature; otherwise, referral is advised. Prompt surgical treatment is generally successful.

    Title Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Knee.
    Journal The Physician and Sportsmedicine

    Osteochondritis dissecans is a disorder in which a fragment of cartilage and subchondral bone separates from an articular surface. The etiology is uncertain, although trauma and ischemia have been implicated. The knee is most commonly affected, but the elbow and ankle may also be involved. Patients typically present during their adolescent or early adult years with nonspecific knee pain and swelling that worsens with activity. The diagnosis is confirmed by radiographic findings. Management decisions are based on the patient's age and the stability, location, and size of the lesion.
