In summarizing current insights and controversies over concussions in athletics, this book makes the vital point that symptom resolution does not necessarily mean injury resolution. Research shows that dysfunctional pathways continue for extended periods even after a minor concussion. Until the consequences of short-term perturbations and long-term residual brain dysfunctions are better understood, concussions must be treated with respect and given a higher priority for continued research activity....
Congenital Anomalies of the Lumbar Spine
Spondylolysis is a bony defect in the pars interarticularis (a segment near the junction of the pedicle with the lamina) of the vertebra; the etiology may be a stress fracture in a congenitally abnormal segment. The defect (usually bilateral) is best visualized on oblique projections in plain x-rays, CT scan, or single photon emission CT (SPECT) bone scan and occurs in the setting of a single injury, repeated minor injuries, or growth.

It is my fondest hope that this Second Edition
of The Portable Pediatrician winds up
tattered and torn, splattered with coffee
stains, down on the floor beside (or under;
I’m not fussy) your bed. That’s where the
First Edition often wound up—as many

if you’re a pediatrician who’s portable, that’s
where you belong: where the action is, and
when the action is, which is often at night.
