Injury classification systems are generally used in sports medicine (1) to accurately classify diagnoses for summary studies, permitting easy grouping into parent categories for tabulation and (2) to create a database from which cases can be extracted for research on specific injuries. Clarity is most important for the first purpose, whereas diagnostic detail is particularly important for the second. An ideal classification system is versatile and appropriate for all sports and all data… Expand
Coding sports injury surveillance data: has version 10 of the Orchard Sports Injury Classification System improved the classification of sports medicine diagnoses?
OSICS-10 is a more encompassing system than OSICS-8 to use in classifying sports medicine diagnoses, and has a moderate level of inter-rater reliability. Expand
Revision, uptake and coding issues related to the open access Orchard Sports Injury Classification System (OSICS) versions 8, 9 and 10.1
The Orchard Sports Injury Classification System (OSICS), one of the world’s most commonly used systems for coding injury diagnoses in sports injury surveillance systems, has wide usage, has codes specific to sports medicine and that it is free to use. Expand
Coding OSICS sports injury diagnoses in epidemiological studies: does the background of the coder matter?
This study found an overall high level of agreement in coding according to OSICS-10, which highlights the fact that increasing complexity and diagnostic specificity in injury coding can result in a loss of reliability and demands a highlevel of anatomical knowledge. Expand
Sport Medicine Diagnostic Coding System (SMDCS) and the Orchard Sports Injury and Illness Classification System (OSIICS): revised 2020 consensus versions
The process for determining the new categories for coding and updating both the Sport Medicine Diagnostic Coding System (SMDCS) and the Orchard Sports Injury and Illness Classification System (OSIICS) with new versions that operationalise the new consensus categories is explained. Expand
Comparison of subsequent injury categorisation (SIC) models and their application in a sporting population
Subsequent injury categorisation of sport injury data can be undertaken using either the original (SIC-1.0) or the revised (SIA) model to obtain similar results, but the SIC-2.0 model offers the ability to identify a larger number of mutually exclusive categories, while not relying on clinical adjudication for category allocation.

The UIAA Medical Commission injury classification for mountaineering and climbing sports.
The medical commission of the UIAA recommends the use of the described criteria and scores for future research in mountaineering and climbing sports in order to enable robust and comprehensive interstudy comparisons and epidemiological analysis. Expand
Injuries in Spanish female soccer players
Most female soccer injuries were located at the knee and ankle; the injury mechanism determined the playing time lost; and the player's age did not affect injury characteristics. Expand
High Incidence of Hand Injuries From Blocking in Elite Taekwondo Despite the Use of Protective Gear: A 5-Year Descriptive Epidemiology Study
There was a significantly higher IIR for acute hand and wrist injuries in elite taekwondo athletes during competition, which resulted in considerable time loss, especially when fractures or dislocations occurred. Expand
Soccer Injuries in Players Aged 7 to 12 Years
The observed injury incidences were lower compared with studies in youth players, and children showed a relatively high proportion of fractures and bone stress and of injuries to the upper limbs. Expand
Nine year longitudinal retrospective study of Taekwondo injuries.
The most common locations of injury are head, foot, and thigh respectively, and are areas for concern when considering preventative measures, and the authors believe is due to more aggressive tactics and lack of control. Expand


Classifying sports medicine diagnoses: a comparison of the International classification of diseases 10-Australian modification (ICD-10-AM) and the Orchard sports injury classification system (OSICS-8)
OSICS-8 appears to be the preferred system for use by inexperienced coders in sports medicine research and it is recommended that changes be made to both OSICS- 8 and ICD-10-AM to improve their reliability for use in sports Medicine research. Expand
Methods for epidemiological study of injuries to professional football players: developing the UEFA model
An injury reporting system developed for the UEFA Football Safety Project for studies on professional footballers is used as a starting point for a general discussion on injury registration and compared with other existing reporting systems. Expand
Consensus statement on injury definitions and data collection procedures in studies of football (soccer) injuries
Recommendations are made on how the incidence of match and training injuries should be reported and a checklist of issues and information that should be included in published reports of studies of football injuries is presented. Expand

OBJECTIVE To analyze archival physiotherapy records at a major military base in North Queensland, Australia, to investigate the epidemiology of injuries associated with sports and training, examiningExpand
Epidemiology of injuries in the Australian Football League, seasons 1997–2000
The injury definition of this study does not produce incidence rates that are complete for all minor injuries, but the determination of an injury is made by a single entity in exactly the same manner for all teams, which overcomes a significant methodological flaw present in other multiteam injury surveillance systems.

A prospective study of injuries and training amongst the England 2003 Rugby World Cup squad
The incidence of match injuries at international level was found to be higher than previously reported and players’ average body mass increased and skinfold measurement decreased significantly over the study period. Expand
Methods for injury surveillance in international cricket.
The consensus statement presented provides a standard which, if followed, allows meaningful comparison of injury surveillance data from different countries and time periods, which will assist in the possible identification of risk factors for injury in cricket. Expand
The Influence of Methodological Issues on the Results and Conclusions from Epidemiological Studies of Sports Injuries
Examples are presented to show that the relationships identified between sports injuries and risk factors may be dependent on whether case-control or cohort study designs are used and the importance of reaching consensus agreements on acceptable study designs and methods of data analysis in sports epidemiology.

Injuries to elite male cricketers in Australia over a 10-year period.
Cricket is a much safer sport to play at the elite level for batsmen, fieldsmen, wicketkeepers, and spin bowlers than the football codes, which are the other most popular professional sports in Australia. Expand
