Abstract Physicians participate in the screening, routine medical supervision, and disqualification process of collegiate student athletes today. Physicians and universities evaluating collegiate student athletes for athletic participation should understand the meticulous medical process necessary to make eligibility/disqualification decisions and the associated liability issues. It is the responsibility of a team physician to take the lead role in the college sports medical evaluation process. ...

Left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) is a cardiomyopathy associated with sporadic or familial disease, the latter having an autosomal dominant mode of transmission. The clinical features associated with LVNC vary from asymptomatic to symptomatic patients, with the potential for heart failure, supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias, thromboembolic events, and sudden cardiac death. Echocardiography is the diagnostic modality of choice, revealing the pathognomonic features of a thick, bilaye...

Abstract The American Heart Association has developed 12 recommendations for preparticipation screening of high school and college athletes, but the application of these recommendations across the US is inconsistent. A recent clinical study suggests that the incidence and prevalence of sudden athletic death (SAD) is greater than previously believed. Currently, diagnostic screening is considered too expensive and is delivered sporadically. Logic dictates that the medical community must become mor...

Introduction Late atrial fibrillation (AF) remains a frequent occurrence after CABG and increases the risk of stroke and mortality. LV diastolic dysfunction, which reflects abnormalities in LV relaxation, has been reported to be a strong risk factor for early postoperative AF (POAF). We hypothesized that the severity of LV diastolic dysfunction would also predict the development of late AF following CABG. The objective was to examine the association of LV diastolic dysfunction severity on the ri...

Objectives Our goal was to investigate whether left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction was an important pathophysiological mechanism underlying the initiation of new-onset post-operative atrial fibrillation (POAF). Background Atrial fibrillation is a common complication after cardiac surgery. However, the precise mechanism underlying its development remains poorly understood. Pre-existing alterations of myocardial diastolic function may predispose patients to the development of POAF. Methods...

The interest in the left atrium (LA) has resurged over the recent years. In the early 1980s, multiple studies were conducted to determine the normal values of LA size. Over the past decade, LA size as an imaging biomarker has been consistently shown to be a powerful predictor of outcomes, including major public health problems such as atrial fibrillation, heart failure, stroke, and death. More recently, functional assessment of the LA has been shown to be, at least as, if not more robust, a mark...
