The case is reported of a competitive canoeist with intermittent axillary vein obstruction secondary to shoulder girdle muscle hypertrophy. The anatomy of the axilla, pathology of the axillary vein, and reported cases of sports injuries involving the axillary vein are discussed. This would appear to be the first report of such an occurrence in a canoeist.

MacFarlane IA, Wilkinson R, Harrington JM : Severe postural hypotension following home canoe construction from polyester resins. Postgrad Med J 1984 Jul;60(705):497-498

On two occasions a 36-year-old man developed severe postural hypotension andneurological signs after working with a polyester resin canoe building kit inan unventilated shed. It is likely that his recurrent illness was caused bystyrene intoxication. Postural hypotension secondary to styrene exposure hasnot previously been reported.

OBJECTIVES. Research has described benefits of physical, athletic, andavocational activity on improving self-esteem, quality of life, and locus ofcontrol in persons with disabilities. The objective of this study was toidentify meaningful components of the experience of sea kayaking as describedby persons with spinal cord injury (SCI). METHOD. Three subjects with SCI whohad participated in recreational kayaking were interviewed. Qualitativeresearch methods included strategies from Guba's model for rigor in qualitativeresearch, Spradley's interviewing guidelines, and Good's method of semanticnetwork analysis. Three interviews of approximately 45 min in length wereconducted with each subject. Initial interviews began with a single question:"Tell me about sea kayaking." Subsequent questions contained only concepts andterms used in the subjects' responses. RESULTS. The subjects valued thenovelty, challenge, safety, sociability, and natural environment aspects of seakayaking. Perceptions of the self as able in the eyes of others and the needfor support in pursuit of outdoor leisure activities were themes that figuredprominently in the subjects' discourse. CONCLUSION. Subjects' comments indicatethat meaningful time use and the construction of an identity after injury arelinked. This link has also been suggested in the rehabilitation literature.This information suggests the use of therapeutic intervention that supports aperson's adjustment to an irreversible SCI.

Tipton M, Eglin C, Gennser M, Golden F : Immersion deaths and deterioration in swimming performance in cold water.Lancet. Vol 354 . August 21, 1999: 626-629

Background General hypothermia (deep body temperature <35°C) has been implicated in immersion-related deaths, but many deaths occur too quickly for it to be involved. We investigated changes in swimming capability in cold water to find out whether such changes could lead to swim failure and drowning.

Venerando A, Pelliccia A : [Physiopathology of superficial venous circulation in athlets]. [Article in French] Phlebologie 1981 Apr;34(2):289-298

The venous circulation in athletes doing sports involving medium or heavy cardiac strain means that considerable physiological modifications may occur, notably vascular expansion. This phenomenon may be observed in the superficial venous circulation of both the upper and lower members, as well as in pulmonary circulation. Varices of the lower members are common in about 5% of practising athletes, notably in weight-lifters and wrestlers who are particularly prone to this risk, and precisely because venous return is impeded by the predominantly static effort which characterizes these sports. Karate, judo, canoeing, football, high jump and long jump are similar: mechanical blocks or sudden increases of venous pressure following the rapid changes in body-position or particular posture. Nevertheless, these phenomena can only be explained by the supposition that the valvular mechanism of certain subjects is particularly vulnerable. There are other sports, on the other hand, which have a beneficial effect on venous return, especially swimming and long-distance running.
