New screening strategy to prevent cardiovascular complications in sports
Date:12/13/2013

Istanbul, Turkey 13 December 2013: Echocardiography with conventional M-mode and 2D modalities is a simple and cost effective way to increases the accuracy of pre-participation sports screening, according to research presented at EuroEcho-Imaging 2013 by Dr Alexander Kisko from Presov, Slovakia.

EuroEcho-Imaging 2013 is the official annual meeting of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI), a registered branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). It takes place during 11-14 December in Istanbul, Turkey, at the Istanbul Lutfi Kırdar Convention & Exhibition Centre (ICEC).

Dr Kisko said: "Trained athletes are generally considered the healthiest people in society, seemingly invulnerable and often capable of extraordinary physical achievement. Their unexpected death during training or competition is a tragic event that assumes a high public profile and continues to have a considerable impact on the general public and the medical community."

He added: "The first historically recorded sports-related death was in courier-runner Pheidippides (530 BC490 BC). Recent publicised deaths have occurred in 30-year-old Claire Squires, who was competing in the London Marathon on 22 April 2012, Piermario Morosini, an Italian football striker who died aged 25 due to cardiac arrest during the match almost a week earlier, and Michael Michalevitch, 29, who died suddenly while participating in the Tel-Aviv marathon on 15 March 2013.

Dr Kisko continued: "Sudden cardiac death (SCD) in young and apparently healthy athletes has long been considered rare but there is evidence that deaths occur as often as once every three days.A These deaths are usually caused by undiagnosed cardiovascular abnormalities but diagnostic screening is considered too expensive and is delivered sporadically. The medical community must become more involved in reducing the incidence and prevalence of SCD through an improved pre-participation
