Background The frequency and severity of kidney injuries and their impact on return to play in American football has not been described in the literature. Purpose Our objective is to identify the number of kidney injuries in the National Football League (NFL) and the effect of these injuries. Study Design Case series; Level of evidence, 4. Methods All kidney injuries in the NFL from 1986 to 2004 were reviewed, including the type and mechanism of injury, treatment, and time to return to play. In… Expand
Injuries in Professional Football: Current Concepts
TLDR
Proper management of both medical disease and on-field injuries can reduce morbidity and may lead to faster return to play and reduced risk of future injury. Expand
A systematic review of genitourinary injuries arising from rugby and football.
BACKGROUND Genitourinary injuries in athletes engaging in high-impact sports such as football and rugby may have catastrophic consequences, especially in individuals with pre-existing urologicExpand
Urologic Sports Injuries in Children
TLDR
Physicians who counsel patients and families about sports participation need to consider many factors: the type of sport, the level of play, the local sports culture, and the relative degree of risk. Expand
Renal Trauma: Evaluation, Management, and Return to Play
TLDR
The athlete with the solitary kidney appears to have low risk for kidney loss with participation in both contact and noncontact sports. Expand
[Sports and genitourinary traumas].
TLDR
Overall, studies show that urogenital injuries are uncommon in team and individual sports, and that most of them are low-grade injuries. Expand
Closed kidney injury.
TLDR
The prevalence of blunt renal trauma and the nature of the problem, including the risk of renal injury with sports participation and epidemiology, and patient history of mechanism of injury will risk-stratify patients to determine who needs immediate surgical intervention, who requires imaging, and what patients do not need further imaging.

Revisiting Sports Precautions in Children With Solitary Kidneys and Congenital Anomalies of the Kidney and Urinary Tract.
TLDR
This review article explores sports and recreational precautions in children with solitary kidneys and proposes an updated, data-driven classification of sports or recreation according to the risk of high-grade renal trauma or loss of renal unit. Expand
[Kidney and sports].
TLDR
Previous nephrectomy or chronic renal failure are conditions that complicate the sport exercise fitness assessment and every patient should be assessed individually by a multidisciplinary medical team. Expand
Sports participation for young athletes with medical conditions: Seizure disorder, infections and single organs.
TLDR
This review provides information on sports participation for athletes with specific health considerations, such as: febrile illnesses, solitary organs, seizures, and skin infections. Expand
Guidelines on Urological Trauma
