Injuries in French and Chinese regular badminton players

Publication date: June 2018Source: Science &Sports, Volume 33, Issue 3Author(s): A. Herbaut, J. Delannoy, M. FoissacSummaryObjectiveEpidemiological studies examined injuries in European and Asian badminton players but no study directly compared these 2 populations. Therefore, the objective of this study was to examine whether differences existed between French and Chinese regular badminton players (RBP) in terms of injury.MethodsAn online questionnaire was completed by 113 French and 117 Chinese RBP. The two populations were matched for distribution of genders, ages, skill levels and badminton exposure. Chi-square tests (χ2) were conducted to determine differences in injuries distribution between the two populations.ResultsA higher percentage of French RBP reported to have experienced at least one injury over the 5 past years compared with Chinese RBP (66% vs. 45%, respectively, χ2 = 10.3, P = 0.001). For the upper limb, French players experienced more shoulder/arm injuries (59% vs. 32%, respectively, P

Between 1935 and 1965, the Italian-American inhabitants of Roseto (Pennsylvania, USA) observed a traditional Italian diet and maintained half the mortality rates from myocardial infarction compared with neighboring cities. In the Seven Countries Study, during 40years (1960-2000) Crete maintained the lowest overall mortality rates and coronar...

CONCLUSIONS: The addition of DZSM capsules to standard secondary preventive agents provides additional benefits after the initial onset of ischemic stroke, reducing recurrent stroke without increasing severe adverse events. However, further study is needed to elucidate the role of DZSM on the updated practice of conventional secondary prevention for ischemic stroke. PMID: 31519277 [PubMed - in process]

The objective of this study was to compare the risk of stroke in atrial fibrillation (AF) with adherent use of oral anticoagulation (OAC), non-adherent use, and non-use of OAC.MethodsUsing 2013 –2016 Medicare claims data, we identified patients newly diagnosed with AF in 2014–2015 and collected prescriptions filled for OAC in the 12 months after AF diagnosis (n = 39,272). We categorized participants each day into three time-dependent exposures: adherent use (≥ 80% of the previous 30 days covered with OAC), non-adherent use (0–80% covered with OAC), and non-use (0%). We co...
