), according to a study published online Aug.
Though most SCDs
in "competitive athletes" occur in younger populations, SCD
during sports is far more common in older athletes, with an estimated incidence of around 21 per 1 million participants per year (Finocchiaro et al 2016).
Stromal corneal dystrophies (SCDs

The prevalence of diagnosed schizophrenia among patients with SCD
was 2.5%, significantly greater than the 0.5% figure in controls.
Although some European and international experts recommend that all athletes undergo preparticipation electrocardiogram (EKG) screening, it's unclear whether screening reduces the risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD

. The autopsies revealed definite evidence of SCD
in 224 cases and negative findings strongly suggestive of sudden arrhythmic death syndrome in another 136.
These other diseases receive much more public and physician attention and research funding than does sudden cardiac death (SCD
Sickle cell disease (SCD
) is the most prevalent genetic hematological disorder worldwide (Baskin et al., 2000), predominantly affecting populations of West African and African Caribbean descent, as well as populations of Asian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean origins (Ahmad & Atkin, 1996).
