A single treatment with repository steroid in non articular injuries in sportsmen (Afrikaans)
The original publication is available at http://www.samj.org.za
A single treatment with repository steroid (methylprednisolone acetate) was given to 300 sportsmen with minor non-articular soft-tissue injuries. The response to treatment was determined after 5 days. Fitness to participate in sport was used as a guide. The results were excellent in 133 (44%) patients, good in 103 (34%) and poor in 64 (21%). Owing to the generally satisfactory response and lack of serious side-effects, there appears to be justification for this type of treatment in properly selected cases.
