Commotio Cordis: A sudden CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA (e.g., VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION) caused by a blunt, non-penetrating impact to the precordial region of chest wall. Commotio cordis often results in sudden death without prompt cardiopulmonary defibrillation.Ectopia Cordis: A rare developmental defect in which the heart is abnormally located partially or totally outside the THORAX. It is the result of defective fusion of the anterior chest wall. Depending on the location of the heart, ectopia cordis can be thoracic, thoracoabdominal, abdominal, and cervical.Baseball: A competitive nine-member team sport including softball.Thoracic Injuries: General or unspecified injuries to the chest area.Racquet Sports: Games in which players use a racquet to hit a ball or similar type object.Sports Equipment: Equipment required for engaging in a sport (such as balls, bats, rackets, skis, skates, ropes, weights) and devices for the protection of athletes during their performance (such as masks, gloves, mouth pieces).Wounds, Nonpenetrating: Injuries caused by impact with a blunt object where there is no penetration of the skin.Ventricular Fibrillation: A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.Athletic Injuries: Injuries incurred during participation in competitive or non-competitive sports.Death, Sudden, Cardiac: Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death. (from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., 2005)Swine: Any of various animals that constitute the family Suidae and comprise stout-bodied, short-legged omnivorous mammals with thick skin, usually covered with coarse bristles, a rather long mobile snout, and small tail. Included are the genera Babyrousa, Phacochoerus (wart hogs), and Sus, the latter containing the domestic pig (see SUS SCROFA).Pentalogy of Cantrell: Rare congenital deformity syndrome characterized by a combination of five anomalies as a result of neural tube defect. The five anomalies are a midline supraumbilical abdominal wall defect (e.g., OMPHALOCELE), a lower STERNUM defect, a congenital intracardiac defect, an anterior DIAPHRAGM defect, and a diaphragmatic PERICARDIUM defect (e.g., PERICARDIAL EFFUSION). Variants with incomplete and variable combinations of the defects are known. ECTOPIA CORDIS; CLEFT LIP; and CLEFT PALATE are often associated with the syndrome.Hospital Bed Capacity, 300 to 499Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia: A congenital cardiomyopathy that is characterized by infiltration of adipose and fibrous tissue into the RIGHT VENTRICLE wall and loss of myocardial cells. Primary injuries usually are at the free wall of right ventricular and right atria resulting in ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias.Cardiomyopathy, Hypertrophic: A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).Death, Sudden: The abrupt cessation of all vital bodily functions, manifested by the permanent loss of total cerebral, respiratory, and cardiovascular functions.Thoracic Wall: The outer margins of the thorax containing SKIN, deep FASCIA; THORACIC VERTEBRAE; RIBS; STERNUM; and MUSCLES.Heart Murmurs: Heart sounds caused by vibrations resulting from the flow of blood through the heart. Heart murmurs can be examined by HEART AUSCULTATION, and analyzed by their intensity (6 grades), duration, timing (systolic, diastolic, or continuous), location, transmission, and quality (musical, vibratory, blowing, etc).Emergency Medical Technicians: Paramedical personnel trained to provide basic emergency care and life support under the supervision of physicians and/or nurses. These services may be carried out at the site of the emergency, in the ambulance, or in a health care institution.Heart Injuries: General or unspecified injuries to the heart.Hypothermia, Induced: Abnormally low BODY TEMPERATURE that is intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means. In humans, mild or moderate hypothermia has been used to reduce tissue damages, particularly after cardiac or spinal cord injuries and during subsequent surgeries.Hypoxia-Ischemia, Brain: A disorder characterized by a reduction of oxygen in the blood combined with reduced blood flow (ISCHEMIA) to the brain from a localized obstruction of a cerebral artery or from systemic hypoperfusion. Prolonged hypoxia-ischemia is associated with ISCHEMIC ATTACK, TRANSIENT; BRAIN INFARCTION; BRAIN EDEMA; COMA; and other conditions.Hypothermia: Lower than normal body temperature, especially in warm-blooded animals.Cost Savings: Reductions in all or any portion of the costs of providing goods or services. Savings may be incurred by the provider or the consumer.Heart Arrest: Cessation of heart beat or MYOCARDIAL CONTRACTION. If it is treated within a few minutes, heart arrest can be reversed in most cases to normal cardiac rhythm and effective circulation.Rewarming: Application of heat to correct hypothermia, accidental or induced.Body Temperature: The measure of the level of heat of a human or animal.Arrhythmias, Cardiac: Any disturbances of the normal rhythmic beating of the heart or MYOCARDIAL CONTRACTION. Cardiac arrhythmias can be classified by the abnormalities in HEART RATE, disorders of electrical impulse generation, or impulse conduction.Cause of Death: Factors which produce cessation of all vital bodily functions. They can be analyzed from an epidemiologic viewpoint.Defibrillators, Implantable: Implantable devices which continuously monitor the electrical activity of the heart and automatically detect and terminate ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) and VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION. They consist of an impulse generator, batteries, and electrodes.Electrocardiography: Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY.Athletes: Individuals who have developed skills, physical stamina and strength or participants in SPORTS or other physical activities.Follow-Up Studies: Studies in which individuals or populations are followed to assess the outcome of exposures, procedures, or effects of a characteristic, e.g., occurrence of disease.Sports: Activities or games, usually involving physical effort or skill. Reasons for engagement in sports include pleasure, competition, and/or financial reward.Population Surveillance: Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Athletic Performance: Carrying out of specific physical routines or procedures by one who is trained or skilled in physical activity. Performance is influenced by a combination of physiological, psychological, and socio-cultural factors.Textbooks as Topic: Books used in the study of a subject that contain a systematic presentation of the principles and vocabulary of a subject.Shock, Cardiogenic: Shock resulting from diminution of cardiac output in heart disease.Aortic Valve Stenosis: A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.Angioplasty, Balloon, Coronary: Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.Coronary Stenosis: Narrowing or constriction of a coronary artery.Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.Coronary Angiography: Radiography of the vascular system of the heart muscle after injection of a contrast medium.Wounds and Injuries: Damage inflicted on the body as the direct or indirect result of an external force, with or without disruption of structural continuity.Trauma Centers: Specialized hospital facilities which provide diagnostic and therapeutic services for trauma patients.Trauma Severity Indices: Systems for assessing, classifying, and coding injuries. These systems are used in medical records, surveillance systems, and state and national registries to aid in the collection and reporting of trauma.Injury Severity Score: An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.Public Opinion: The attitude of a significant portion of a population toward any given proposition, based upon a measurable amount of factual evidence, and involving some degree of reflection, analysis, and reasoning.Craniocerebral Trauma: Traumatic injuries involving the cranium and intracranial structures (i.e., BRAIN; CRANIAL NERVES; MENINGES; and other structures).

A case of commotio cordis caused by steering wheel injury. (2/5)

We report a rare case of commotio cordis caused by traffic injury. The patient was a 60-year-old female driver who suffered severe steering wheel impact to the chest during a head-on collision in which her car overturned. She had no history of cardiac disease. Emergency medical services arrived at the scene within 12 minutes of the accident. Evidence of ventricular fibrillation led the paramedics to carry out immediate defibrillation with an automated external defibrillator. Restoration of spontaneous circulation was confirmed within 2 minutes, along with establishment of sinus rhythm and normal wave form on electrocardiography. The patient was transported to our hospital in an emergency helicopter. General examination revealed chest bruising, and computed tomography of the chest showed pulmonary contusions; there was no other evidence of critical injury. We performed endotracheal intubation, as the patient had consciousness disturbance, and then initiated hypothermic therapy in the intensive care unit. Meanwhile, the hemodynamics remained stable, and there was no recurrence of arrhythmia. On day 15, the patient's consciousness improved, and she was able to communicate. Two months later, she was transported to another hospital for rehabilitation.  (+info)

A patient with commotio cordis successfully resuscitated by bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillator. (4/5)

Sudden deaths of children and adolescents during competitive sports are usually due to congenital heart diseases. Ventricular fibrillation, however, may also occur in individuals with no underlying cardiac disease who have sustained a low-impact chest wall blow. This phenomenon is described as commotio cordis, and the overall survival rate is poor. Successful resuscitation can be achieved by prompt cardiopulmonary resuscitation and early defibrillation. We report a teenager who sustained a chest wall blow that resulted in a cardiac arrest during a rugby competition. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was given by bystanders. The ambulance crew arrived with an automated external defibrillator. Ventricular fibrillation was detected and responded to defibrillation. Subsequent investigations including imaging and electrophysiological studies did not reveal any cardiac or brain abnormality, and the patient recovered well neurologically. Accessible cardiopulmonary resuscitation-trained personnel and automated external defibrillators should be present at all organised sporting events.  (+info)

 (+info)

What is known regarding the epidemiology and clinical features of commotio cordis predominantly emanate from the National Registry assembled in Minneapolis under the supervision of Dr. Barry J. Maron at Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation. The Commotio Cordis Registry began with the first 25 cases reported in 1995 in the New England Journal of Medicine (Maron BJ, et al. 1995; 333:337-342) and for much of the time since has been generously supported by NOCSAE. furthermore, the series of animal experiments conducted at Tufts-New England Medical Center by Dr. Mark Link have relied in their design substantially on the clinical profile of commotio cordis developed from the Registry. It is important to continue the assembly of commotio cordis cases and to maintain the Registry, as the clinical spectrum of this unusual but heterogeneous clinical entity is not yet completely understood or described. This is particularly important as we focus on strategies for prevention over the next 3-4 years. Much ...
Sudden death due to low energy chest wall trauma, commotio cordis, is seen in young athletes aged 5 to 18. Although not common, it is the most frequent cause of death in the young baseball player. Commotio cordis is also reported in hockey, lacrosse, and with bodily contacts in other sports. Death is swift and unusually recalcitrant to even immediate resuscitation efforts. We have developed a swine model with low energy chest wall impact gated to the cardiac cycle. With this model we have found that if an impact occurs during a 20-ms window during repolarization (regeneration of the heart beat) a fatal ventricular arrhythmia can result. Additional insights gained from this model include the importance of location of impact, energy of impact, hardness of impact object, and shape of impact object. Furthermore, this model has been utilized to evaluate safety baseballs and chest wall protectors. And finally this model has provided basic data to the Wayne State Group (Cindy Bir - NOCSAE Funded 2007) ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Commotio cordis as a rare cause of traumatic cardiac arrest in motorbike crashes. T2 - Report of a case. AU - Yeh, Chun Chieh. AU - Hsieh, Chi Hsun. AU - Wang, Yu Chun. AU - Chung, Ping Kuei. AU - Chen, Ray Jade. PY - 2010/4. Y1 - 2010/4. N2 - It is futile to attempt resuscitation in a blunt injury patient with no vital signs upon arriving at the emergency department. Therefore, it is recommended that resuscitation be withheld in any blunt trauma patient without vital signs while emergency medical technicians arrive at the scene of the accident. This report presents a case of a blunt torso trauma patient who lost vital signs at the scene and still received cardiopulmonary resuscitation until recovery of spontaneous circulation at the emergency department. The patient was later diagnosed with commotio cordis, and survived to be discharged without any neurological sequelae. Therefore, aggressive resuscitation should be continued until a diagnosis and differential diagnosis of blunt ...
A little over a year ago, Steven Domalewski, a 13-year old Little League pitcher from Wayne, NJ was hit in the chest by a line drive. The blow to the chest resulted in a condition called commotio cordis that left...
Previous experimental models of chest wall impact used high energy impacts that almost universally caused severe thoracic and cardiac damage.10 11 These models, therefore, were more reflective of motor vehicular accidents and bomb blasts than commotio cordis. In an effort to delineate the mechanism of sudden death in low energy chest wall impacts, we recently developed an experimental model of low energy chest wall impact.12 In this model, a 30 mph baseball impact was given to the chest wall of anaesthetised juvenile pigs. The impact was gated to the cardiac cycle. With the use of an electrophysiological stimulator to control the release of the impact object and a known 130 ms flight time, the impact could be delivered at any chosen time during the cardiac cycle. In this model, ventricular fibrillation was reproducibly initiated by impacts during a 15 ms time window on the upslope of the T wave (30 to 15 ms before the peak of the T wave). The initiation of ventricular fibrillation was ...
Sudden unexpected cardiac death that occurs in young people during sports participation is usually associated with previously diagnosed or undiagnosed structural or primary electrical cardiac abnormalities. Examples of such abnormalities include hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, anomalous origin of a coronary artery, arrhythmogenic right ventricul...
There is a deadly phenomenon named commotio cordis. It can occur when a person receives a hard blow to the chest at a certain time during the normal cardiac rhythm. This can happen in ice hockey, lacrosse, baseball, football, karate, or any sport where a hard blow to the chest can happen. It is so significant a problem that US Lacrosse adopted a position statement (www.uslacrosse.org/SportsScienceandSafety/PositionStatementonCommotioCor...) on it in 2008.. Barry J Maron, PhD, has been investigating the incidence of cardiac arrest via commotio cordis and has established a national registry to collect the data necessary to better understand the phenomenon. The registry data show an average frequency of occurrence of 17 instances per year with only about 12 percent of the victims surviving. Intuitively, it is highly unlikely that the registry has captured all instances. The problem is probably worse than reported.. ...
BACKGROUND: The syndrome of sudden death due to low-energy trauma to the chest wall (commotio cordis) has been described in young sports participants, but the mechanism is unknown. METHODS: We developed a swine model of commotio cordis in which a low-energy impact to the chest wall was produced by a wooden object the size and weight of a regulation baseball. This projectile was thrust at a velocity of 30 miles per hour and was timed to the cardiac cycle. RESULTS: We first studied 18 young pigs, 6 subjected to multiple chest impacts and 12 to single impacts. Of the 10 impacts occurring within the window from 30 to 15 msec before the peak of the T wave on the electrocardiogram, 9 produced ventricular fibrillation. Ventricular fibrillation was not produced by impacts at any other time during the cardiac cycle. Of the 10 impacts sustained during the QRS complex, 4 resulted in transient complete heart block. We also studied whether the use of safety baseballs, which are softer than standard ones, ...
Commotio cordis or cardiac concussion can cause sudden death in young baseball players. It is the result of a low velocity impact to the chest from a thrown or batted ball, usually traveling at a speed of between 20 and 50 mph. The impact must occur directly over the heart; the closer to the center, the greater the risk. The cause of death is the development of an abnormal rhythm, ventricular fibrillation, though there may be some affect on the blood circulation to the heart as well. For such a catastrophic event to occur, the impact has to be precisely timed to strike the heart during a 15 to 30-millisecond phase of the electrical cycle.. There is a 90 percent death rate among those suffering commotio cordis. The lack of response to CPR efforts by healthy young baseball players is unexpected and remains unexplained. However, it is clear that a rapid response time - three to five minutes - is critical. Batters should learn ball avoidance and turn away from an inside pitch and not open the chest ...

Cordis Corp., the stent-making arm of healthcare colossus Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), said its acquired Flexible Stenting Solutions as part of turning its back on the coronary stents market in favor of the endovascular arena.. Bridgewater, N.J.-based Cordis didnt reveal the purchase price or any details for its buyout of FSS, which makes the FlexStent self-expanding stent. Cordis said the deal is a chance to expand its reach into the peripheral artery disease and, potentially, into the below-the-knee and venous intervention markets.. FSS first won CE Mark approval in the European Union in January 2009 for its FlexStent self-expanding stent to treat vascular disease, which was later expanded to include additional sizes. Later in 2009 the FlexStent device won 510(k) clearance from the FDA later that year for treating malignant bile duct tumors.. Cordis continues to identify opportunities to enhance its expanding portfolio of less invasive treatment options to address the needs of patients ...
On the other hand, these usually are because of shedding oxygen or traumatic brain damage, not a simple touch to the pressure point. Some scarce scenarios of trauma to the carotid artery, or even occasions called commotio cordis - often called cardiac concussion, which involves a weighty blow into the chest that messes up the hearts electrical current and brings about sudden heart failure - have brought up the issue concerning whether or not Japanese samurai fighters ended up Probably on to some thing whenever they created promises with regard to the "Death Touch ...
http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2509/is-the-ninja-death-touch-real. Known in Cantonese as dim mak and in Japanese as kyusho jitsu, the touch of death is said to be something like acupunctures evil twin. The idea is that chi, or energy, flows through the body along lines called meridians. A blow or squeeze applied to certain pressure points on these lines will supposedly put the whammy on the victims chi, leading to incapacitation or death. Though none of the techniques of dim mak seems likely to work consistently as advertised, medical journals describe many incidents in which a seemingly mild trauma results in disproportionately serious injury, and the sites of some such traumas correlate with dim mak pressure points. Cases like these include: Commotio cordis, also known as cardiac concussion. This is a syndrome in which a nonpenetrating impact to the chest causes heart failure but little or no structural damage. The classic victim is a kid or young adult who takes a baseball, hockey ...
Every time a child steps on the baseball field, they risk getting hurt. And every year, several children in the United States die from a ball hitting them in the chest.

Coming off a 14-8 loss at Albany Saturday, the Harvard mens lacrosse team was looking to rebound with a home win Tuesday afternoon. Hosting Quinnipiac (1-2) in a non-conference contest, the Crimson (2-2) struggled in the first two periods, but turned it around in the second half to escape with a 10-8 win at Soldiers Field Lacrosse Stadium.. For much of the first half, Harvard failed to execute on either side of the field. The Crimson scored the first three goals of the game in a span of three minutes, but then completely stalled, giving up five straight goals.. "I was disappointed in the way that we started," Harvard coach Chris Wojcik 96 said. "I thought we came out looking pretty lackluster, turning the ball over and [were] not fully focused.". The game started with neither team able to launch a successful offense. The Bobcats dominated the possession battle early, but were unable to capitalize on any opportunities, largely due to several key saves by Crimson junior goaltender Jake ...
The No. 19 USC womens lacrosse team defeated No. 5 Duke 11-5 Saturday night in the U.S. Lacrosse Orange County Winter Invitational in Costa Mesa.. The Women of Troy (2-0) claimed a spot in the Top 25 national rankings heading into the contest, but they were still underdogs against one of the ACCs finest.. It is safe to say that this USC squad turned some heads with such a convincing win over a top-10 team.. Though the Trojans have only played two games, it is obvious that this defense is elite.. When they did not have the ball, USCs defensive personnel made life difficult for the Blue Devils (2-2). Senior Courtney Tarleton scooped up three ground balls and caused a turnover, while Nina Kelty also came up with a strong performance at the back.. Head coach Lindsey Munday knew Duke would ask questions of this defense, so she ensured that the unit would be organized against the Blue Devils.. After the 21-2 win over Stetson in the season opener, Munday said, "Obviously momentum is great, but we ...

We present a case of a previously healthy 17 year-old white male boy scout who collapsed after a lightning strike, and was found to be in ventricular fibrillation when emergency medical services arrived. The ventricular fibrillation was defibrillated into sinus rhythm after a single direct current (DC) countershock. However, the patient has remained in coma. Commotio cordis, sudden cardiac death from low-energy chest wall impact, is a phenomenon in which an exactly timed and located blow on the chest during the cardiac cycle results in ventricular fibrillation. Commotio cordis and electrical shock can both result in ventricular arrhythmias. We speculate that in this patient, ventricular fibrillation began immediately after the lightning, which probably struck at the peak of the T wave. (Cardiol J 2007; 14: 91-94 ...

Worthwhile works of Gothic horror-core are quite hard to come by, thus Alberto Cavallones phantasmagoric porn flick Blow Job - Soffio erotico (1980) - although intrinsically inferior to the Italian filmmakers previous films - comes as notable exception. Directed by the nearly forgotten arthouse smut auteur who brought us such mostly unsung cult classics as Zelda (1974) and Blue Movie (1978), Blow Job signified the steady artistic and monetary decline of Cavallones - at best - marginally successful film career. The production of the film was cursed from the beginning as one of the films producers committed suicide (as if he was an anti-hero in one of Cavallones films) during the filming of Blow Job, which is indubitably a shinning, albeit tragic (at least as far as the films budget was concerned) example of life imitating art, at least for those individuals that have seen the film. Essentially divided into two halves, Blow Job begins as what initially seems to be a generic Italian smut ...

Figure 2: Phases (bottom) and Discrete Events (top) of the lacrosse shot.. Discussion. The intent of creating a model of the phases and discrete events for the lacrosse shot is to create a framework for research as well as constructing coaching tips for the enhancement of shot speed and accuracy. For example, recently we investigated muscle activity of the top and bottom arms during shooting (1). In that study, we examined the muscle activity ½ second before and after ball release. Although it was insightful to identify the different roles of muscles when considering the top and bottom arms and that the wrist flexors/extensors were more active than suspected, the meaningfulness of that work would be more significant if muscle activity were described for each phase. This type of research would provide insight into the importance of timing of muscle contractions that led to a faster shot velocity. Likewise, that research would lead to developing training programs and drills to develop a faster ...
US Lacrosse is attempting to send a consistent message regarding checking to youth players. It is the hope of the Rules Committee that mandating no full checking will allow the beginning player to work on the basic fundamentals of the game - passing, catching, footwork, proper positioning, and marking - before they are introduced to the more advanced skill of stick checking.. Once players have mastered the basic fundamentals, programs will want to introduce modified stick checking. Players on 5th through 8th grade teams will be allowed to use modified checking as an intermediate step towards full checking. Modified checking is defined as checking the stick if it is below shoulder level, using a downward motion away from the other players body. Use of modified checking will allow the older youth player to learn proper checking skills, while at the same time encouraging good cradling and stick handling skills for the attack player. Umpires and coaches should strictly enforce this rule, never ...
To close out the fall season, Michigan Lacrosse took a different approach to its final scheduled practice. Instead of running laps in Oosterbaan Fieldhouse, the team got their cardio in while participating in a scavenger hunt that required groups to complete tasks while running to various locations around campus.. Highlights from the assignment list included campus classics such as spinning the 2,400 lb cube between the Michigan Union and Student Activities Building and doing backwards lunges across the Diag. Point values were assigned to each task based on its difficulty. Teams earned five points for taking a picture inside a restaurant kitchen, in a bathtub, inside the library, or posing with a mens lacrosse player. More difficult (read: embarrassing) tasks netted twenty points and included performing the Little Sally Walker dance inside of a fraternity and sword-fighting with day-old bread at Jimmy Johns. (See complete list). In a contest that was decided on a technicality, the group of ...

Mik has also been with me for four years," Rowell continued. "Mik is always early to practice and last to leave. She has a calm demeanor even when she is fired up. She brings out the best in her teammates with her support and leadership.". Defense. Returning between the pipes is junior goaltender Kasey Molito, who started her lacrosse career as a defender her freshman campaign.. "Kasey did not have any experience coming in to last season as a goalie," Rowell said. "She has a great attitude and is willing to play any position that the team needs her to. Kasey has good reflexes, a very competitive spirit, and good communication with the defense.". A few areas on which Rowell said he is aiming to improve on is on transition and just implementing the offense. He said the scoring woes came from the implementation of a brand new scheme at the outset of last season.. "There were some growing pains with players learning their cuts and spacing," Rowell said. "We also had a couple of players last year who ...

Roy D. Simmons Jr. (born August 6, 1935) is a former American lacrosse coach who was the head coach of the Syracuse Orange mens lacrosse team from 1971 to 1998. Simmons teams won the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Mens Lacrosse Championship six times (one was later vacated), and appeared in the national semifinals 16 consecutive seasons. He won the F. Morris Touchstone Award for the coach of the year in NCAA mens lacrosse in 1980, and was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1991. Simmonss father, Roy Simmons Sr., was the coach of Syracuses mens lacrosse team for 39 seasons; he was a 1964 National Lacrosse Hall of Fame inductee. According to Simmons Jr., during his early years he was a mascot for his fathers teams, and was a regular in the teams locker room. He was also interested in boxing, and Simmons Sr. referred to him as "Slugger". Simmons Jr. attended Kimball Union Academy, playing on the schools lacrosse team for three seasons.

Ectopia cordis is an extremely rare anterior thoraco-abdominal wall defect. Embryologically it should be thought of as sternal cleft defect resulting from a failure of fusion of the mesenchymal primordia that will form the cartilaginous sternum and the ventral abdominal wall at five to six weeks. Abnormalities may present as a spectrum varying from simple defects of the sternum to Pentalogy of Cantrell, as in this case. These abnormalities have been classified in two different ways. In 1977 Ravitch classified sternal cleft syndromes into three groups. In the first group there was simple failure of complete sternal fusion with no abnormalites of the intrathoracic structures. The second group was comprised of the patients with ectopia cordis with a normal heart protruding out of the thorax. The third group were those fetuses with Pentalogy of Cantrell, described in the 1950s as a mesodermal defect consisting of a deficiency of the anterior diaphragm, a midline supraumbilical anterior abdominal ...
Publisher: University of Delaware. Date Issued: 2014. Abstract: Context: To clinicians, researchers, and athletes alike, the recent evidence suggesting the detrimental effects of subconcussive head impacts (SCHI) in collision sport athletes is alarming. The sport of lacrosse like football, ice hockey, and soccer, has a high-risk for sport-related concussions (SRC). However, there is paucity in research examining male lacrosse players despite the high risk for SRC and the opportunity for repeated SCHI to the helmet during competition. Unlike American football, unique to the sport of lacrosse is the fact that they are often asked to play games with minimal rest periods in between which provides for a chance to study SCHI in this population during a truncated week of competition. Objective: The primary goal of this study was to examine if SCHI had an effect on concussion-related symptoms, clinical reaction time, and oculomotor function in mens lacrosse players (MLAX) in a shortened time frame ...
