PURPOSE Joint-related pain conditions from the spine and extremities are common among top athletes. The frequency of back pain has, however, been studied in more detail, and the frequency of low-back pain in top athletes in different high-load sports has been reported to be as high as 85%. Sport-related pain from different joints in the extremities is,(More)
BACKGROUND Onychomycosis is a rare disorder in children. Few studies exist on the incidence or prevalence of onychomycosis in children. OBJECTIVE To examine the epidemiology of childhood onychomycosis in Iceland during the period 1982-2000. METHODS Results from all mycological samples taken from children in Iceland from 1982 to 2000 were examined.(More)
BACKGROUND Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a common cause of hip pain and dysfunction among athletes. Although arthroscopic surgery is an established treatment option for FAI, there are few studies reporting detailed outcomes using validated outcome measurements specifically designed for young and active athletes. PURPOSE To report outcomes 1 year(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip is a common cause of hip pain. The arthroscopic management of patients with femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI) has been reported to yield good outcomes. The purpose of this study was to report on outcome following the arthroscopic treatment of patients with FAI in the presence of mild to moderate OA. Seventy-five patients(More)
BACKGROUND The high loads on adolescent athletes' musculoskeletal system are known to cause morphological and degenerative changes in bone, intervertebral discs and joints. It has been suggested that the cam deformity of the proximal femoral head originates from a subclinical slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) as a result of non-physiological loading.(More)
BACKGROUND The repetitive load to which the adolescent athlete's body is exposed during training and competition affects bone growth. In previous studies, abnormalities of the spine and extremities of adolescent athletes have been described on radiographs and this also applies to the hip. The cam deformity of the hip is an extension of the physeal plate and(More)
