Recovery sector of the Ironman triathlon race: Pain profile of triathletes and sector organization

ConclusionApproximately one-third of the triathletes starting a long-distance Ironman race sought treatment at the recovery sector with high prevalence of pain in the thighs and posterior region of legs.RésuméIntroductionLors de courses de longues distances, les triathletes présentent de nombreux symptômes cliniques. La connaissance de la prévalence de la douleur et des régions du corps affectées par celle-ci après une couse, telle un Ironman, peut permettre de mettre en place un programme préventif et ainsi éviter ces douleurs. L’objectif de cette étude a été de décrire le profil de douleurs des triathlètes ayant achevé une course de longue distance, telle un Ironman. Ce profil a été identifié en se basant sur la prévalence des douleurs ressenties par les triathlètes qui ont cherché un traitement de récupération.Synthèse des faits et résultats5292 triathlètes ont été traités au cours de neuf éditions de courses. Avant le traitement, ces triathlètes ont répondu au questionnaire suivant : « Quelles parties de votre corps ressentez-vous le plus de douleur ? » et « Avez-vous eu des crampes pendant la course ? si oui, ou se situaient-elles ? ».

Abstract Every age group experiences back pain, a common reason for activity limitation. Management of back pain in a woman is challenging because of physiologic and hormonal changes through the woman's life cycle. The treatment is dictated by etiology and a woman's stage of life or reproductive events, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, and menopause. Most episodes of low back pain are temporary with minimal long-term sequelae, but recurrent and long-lasting episodes require more thorough clinical evaluation. This monograph describes the anatomy of the spine; illustrates a focused, thorough evaluation, including o...

Abstract Ischemic colitis primarily affects the elderly with underlying disease, but it rarely occurs in young adults with risk factors, such as coagulopathy or vascular disorder. Moreover, it is extremely rare in the very young without risk factors. This paper presents a patient with ischemic colitis associated with heat stroke and rhabdomyolysis after intense exercise under high-temperature conditions. A 20-year-old man presented with mental deterioration after a vigorous soccer game for more than 30 minutes in sweltering weather. He also presented with hematochezia with abdominal pain.

Abstract Pancreatic cancer is a dismal disease with a poor prognosis and is one of the most painful malignancies. Therefore, adequate pain control is essential to improving the patient's quality of life. Pain in pancreatic cancer has complex pathophysiologic mechanisms and different characteristics. The choice of pain management modalities should be individualized depending on the pain characteristics using a multidisciplinary approach. The treatment options available include medical treatment, chemotherapy, celiac plexus/ganglion neurolysis, radiotherapy, and endoscopic technique. This review discusses the medica...

Abstract Introduction: The outcome of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is significantly influenced by the total tissue ischemic time. In spite of efforts for reducing the in-hospital delay by full-time provision of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (P-PCI) in the 24/7 program, pre-hospital delay still persists. As a first report in Iran, we aimed to assess the duration of pre-hospital delay and its contributing factors in STEMI patients in the P-PCI era. Methods: The present cross-sectional study evaluated 2103 STEMI patients who underwent primary PCI from 2016 to 2018. Demographic, persona...
