Welcome to the May edition of Current Sports Medicine Reports!
May 30 is rapidly approaching, are you registered for ACSM's Annual Meeting? I just returned from Denver, and I highly recommend you get TSA precheck as getting through security at that airport was crazy! ACSM's Annual Meeting is truly one of the highlights of the academic conferences that I attend, and I am looking forward to another great year.
Thanks to Pierre A. d'Hemecourt, MD, FACSM, for assembling a practical set of five case reports for this Sideline and Event Management issue. The case reports cover several interesting topics including reversible cognitive decline in a former American-style football player, fitness training associated vertebral artery dissection, professional soccer player with shortness of breath, profound healing of a quadriceps tendon tear following intratendinous minimally invasive PRP Injection, and a novel approach to Haglund deformity resection using a percutaneous ultrasound guided osteotomy device.
The curriculum series has been a point of emphasis and interest here at CSMR. This month we have an excellent special communication that continues the series, titled, “Sports Medicine Curricular Recommendations for Undergraduate Medical Education," written by Megan Ferderber, MD, MPH; Kristina Wilson, MD, MPH; Benjamin Buchanan, MD; Shelley Callender, MD; Jason Deck, MD; Hamish Kerr, MD, MSc; Brooke Lemmen, DO; Cleo Stafford II, MD, MS; David Wang, MD; and Anna Waterbrook, MD. Check it out.
Be sure to also check out the columns in this issue: Pearls and Pitfalls and Web Alerts.
While at ACSM's Annual Meeting if you attend any lectures that make you think – that needs to be in CSMR, please let us know and let the presenter know, and we will work on publishing it.
See you in Denver; got to love the big blue bear peaking in the convention center window!
