A clinical risk score of myocardial fibrosis predicts adverse outcomes in aortic stenosis Calvin W.
Gersh Strain echocardiography is related to fibrosis and ventricular arrhythmias in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy Trine F. HALT did not produce any symptoms but was associated with restrictive cusp motion and slightly higher transaortic mean pressure gradient (14.9±5.3 vs. Full anticoagulation restored normal cusp morphology and motion in almost all patients.
The results show that only one of the 64 reported allegations resulted in conviction for the alleged crime (though four players pleaded guilty to lesser charges and five pleaded no contest), only seven players were punished by their league, and only two players were punished by their team. If this statistic is not shocking enough, it is likely that the actual odds of a professional athlete being punished, by the criminal justice system, leagues or teams, for domestic violence or sexual assault are even lower than is evidenced by calculations based on media reports of such incidents.
First, many victims of domestic violence and sexual assault do not report to the police.
The NFL’s treatment of domestic violence was selected as the sports story of 2014 in an annual vote conducted by the Associated Press. For the first time since the late 1990s, the media is publicly recognizing the silent story that has laid dormant, overshadowed by the story of fame, glory, athleticism and America’s favorite pastimes.
146 (2010).] In Spring 2010, I wrote an article reviewing the treatment by Major League Baseball (“MLB”), the National Football League (the “NFL”) and the National Basketball Association (the “NBA”) of professional athletes who are accused of domestic violence. At the time, there was very little written on the subject—a number of articles in the late 1990s focusing on the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman by famous former running back, O. Simpson (and the countless 911 domestic violence calls placed by Nicole Brown Simpson that preceded those deaths) and some pioneering works by author Jeff Benedict. Just five years later, the story is quite different.
Based on a Westlaw search of newspapers across the United States, there were 64 reported incidents of domestic violence or sexual assault allegedly committed by athletes in MLB, the NFL and the NBA during this five-year period.Detection and prognostic value of pulmonary congestion by lung ultrasound in ambulatory heart failure patients Elke Platz, Eldrin F.

Withers’ highly regarded 2010 article on the same subject, The Integrity of the Game: Professional Athletes and Domestic Violence, 1 Harv. As in the late 1990s, the recent media attention on professional athletes and acts of off-field violence was precipitated by a widely publicized act of violence.
Instead, the leagues have been inconsistently punishing players for certain off-field criminal behavior—arguably implicitly condoning the off-field criminal behavior that typically goes unpunished, such as violence against women.
