Statistical analyses Cohen Kappa`s statistics (κ) are used to refer to the concordance between clinicians. The chord was considered almost perfect if κ = 0.81-1.00, moderate κ = 0.41-0.60, substant κ = 0.61-0.80, fair κ = 0.21-0.40, slightly κ = 0-0.20 and bad if κ<0. In addition, the absolute correspondence, prevalence and bias index are calculated. Statistical analyses are performed with SPSS software. Not only do many major sporting events take place in Doha, but we also organized the first world conference on groin pain in athletes, which resulted in the Doha Agreement on terminology and definitions of groin pain in athletes1. In this article, we want to be your mascot and offer you a hawkish perspective on the clinically relevant anatomy of the groin region, which should allow you to better study your patient and detect common clinical entities. Results: The following terminology was adopted unanimously. The classification system has three main signatures of groin pain in athletes: 1. Clinical entities defined for groin pain: adductor, iliopsoas, groin pain related to the groin.
2. Groin pain related to the hip. 3. Other causes of groin pain in athletes. Definitions are contained in this document. AW contributor participated in the idea, he designed and developed the process, coordinated the process, wrote the plans and arranged all the changes. PH was involved in the idea as well as the design, development and coordination of the project. KT, PB and KMK participated in the design and development of the project.
All authors contributed to the evolution of the content of the Statement of Understanding by participating in the meeting or discussions that followed. All authors gave their opinion at each round of writing and approved the final version. 24.Wehr A, Holmich P, Schache AG, Delahunt E, de Vos R-J. Terminology and definitions of groin pain in athletes: consistency with a short Delphi method. Br J Sports Med [Internet]. 2015 Apr 23 [cited 2015 Apr 28]; Available at: bjsm.bmj.com/cgi/doi/10.1136/bjsports-2015-094807 groin pains are common in field and field athletes. It is particularly prevalent in football, Gaelic football and the Rugby Union. The wide variety of potential injuries in many anatomical structures and the high prevalence of “abnormal imaging results” in asymptomatic athletes contribute to the complexity. The heterogeneous taxonomy of groin injuries in athletes further contributes to the confusion.
Clinical practice is a challenge, as clinicians use different terminology than groin pain, even the same term can have multiple interpretations. A recent systematic overview of the treatment of groin pain in athletes included 72 studies using 33 different diagnostic terms. The “meeting of the Doha Agreement on Terminology and Definitions for Groin Pain in Athletes” was convened to try to resolve this issue. The Doha agreement on the terminology and definitions of groin pain in athletes reached consensus on a taxonomy clinically based on three main categories. These definitions and terminologies are based on background and physical examination to categorize athletes, making them simple and suitable for clinical practice and research. Figure 6 gives an overview of how the Doha Agreement is aimed at athletes suffering from groin pain. We hope our article has given you a hawk-like perspective on the diagnosis of groin pain in athletes. This overview will help you navigate this previously dark area with confidence. It is important to develop a routine in the examination of groin pain in athletes. . .
