What are the risks to sportspeople’s hearts?

Chairperson: Alma Maria Grandin

Testimony from the world of sport to be understood

Both professional and amateur sportspeople are unfortunately subject to a series of unpleasant cardio-vascular events as the news in recent months, in particular, has shown. How is it possible that potentially lethal events hit young people in apparently exceptional health? Is the problem one of sport itself or is it a question of a pre-existing illness unknown to the sportsperson and undetected by doctors before sportspeople begin their sporting activities?

This round table will try to throw light on this subject and report on what is currently being done in Italy.
