Hémorragie intra-vitréenne et "whole-body vibration training"--une association?

Bertschinger, D. R.

Abstract Whole-body vibration training, i.e., standing in different static positions or exercising on a vibrating platform, has been promoted as an attractive and efficient complement, or even alternative, to resistance training. No ocular side effects have been described until now. We describe the case of a 43-year-old man who presented 2 weeks after starting whole-body vibration training with a spontaneous vitreous hemorrhage. We briefly discuss the ocular effects of habitual exposure to vibration described in the literature. This case suggests that whole body vibration training can cause spontaneous vitreous hemorrhage. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a possible ocular side effect of whole-body vibration training.
