Platelet-rich plasma versus lidocaine as tenotomy adjuvants in people with elbow epicondylopathy: a randomized controlled trial.

J Orthop Surg Res 2019 Apr 23;14(1):109. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Regenerative Medicine, BioCruces Health Research Institute, Cruces University Hospital, 48903, Barakaldo, Spain.

Objectives: To determine the efficacy of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) compared to lidocaine as a tenotomy adjuvant for people with elbow tendinopathy.

Methods: Our study was a parallel-group, double-blind, randomized trial involving 71 patients with recalcitrant elbow tendinopathy who received two sessions of ultrasound-guided tenotomy with either PRP or lidocaine in a tertiary public hospital. The primary end point was the percentage of patients with an improvement exceeding 25% reduction in disability (Spanish version of the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand questionnaires-DASH-E) at 6 and 12 months; the secondary outcome was the percentage of patients exceeding 25% reduction in pain (VAS-P).

Isolated complete ulnar collateral ligament tear of the elbow in a gymnast: does it need surgery?

Phys Sportsmed 2019 Mar 4:1-5. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

a The Division of Shoulder Surgery, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery , The Johns Hopkins University , Baltimore , MD , USA.

Ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) tears can occur from trauma or chronic overuse, and the treatment depends on the type of sport the patient plays and the severity of symptoms. Overuse UCL injuries are most commonly due to micro-trauma in overhead athletes such as baseball players, softball players, and tennis players. Acute complete UCL tears in athletes due to trauma are less common but generally operative treatment is recommended. Read More

Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine Unit (PRM), University Hospital, 33076 Bordeaux, France; EA4136 Handicap, Activité, Cognition, Santé, Bordeaux University, 33076 Bordeaux, France.

Background: Epicondylar tendinopathy ("tennis elbow") is a serious issue in manual labourers. Symptoms can persist over months or even more than 1 year, even when treated with trinitrine patches, acupuncture, sclerosis of neovessels, shock-wave therapy, autologous blood injections, platelet-rich plasma or hyaluronic acid. Botulinum toxin (BoNT-A) injections showed promising short-term results, but the long-term beneficial effects are not yet known. Read More

The Effectiveness of Kinesiotaping, Sham Taping or Exercises Only in Lateral Epicondylitis Treatment: A Randomized Controlled Study.

PM R 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Division of Pain Medicine, Marmara University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Lateral epicondylitis is a common musculoskeletal condition presenting with pain and tenderness over the lateral epicondyle and dorsal forearm, pain and weakness in gripping and limitations in daily activities. It is proposed that kinesiotaping, a new application of adhesive taping, reduces pain and improves muscle function.

Objective: To compare efficacy of kinesiotaping, sham taping, or exercises only in the treatment of lateral epicondylitis. Read More

Platelet-rich plasma versus Tenex in the treatment of medial and lateral epicondylitis.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2019 Jan;28(1):112-119

Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Medial epicondylitis and lateral epicondylitis are among the most common elbow pathologies affecting people aged between 40 and 50 years. Although epicondylitis is often a self-limiting condition that improves with conservative treatment, the condition can be difficult to eradicate. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and ultrasound-guided percutaneous tenotomy (Tenex) for the treatment of medial or lateral epicondylitis.

Editorial Commentary: Dealer's Choice for Arthroscopic Versus Open Lateral Epicondylitis Release? It's Not That Simple.

Authors:
Larry D Field

Arthroscopy 2018 Dec;34(12):3185-3186

Jackson, Mississippi.

The most efficacious treatment for patients with persistent lateral epicondylitis who have not adequately improved despite undergoing extended nonoperative measures may be arthroscopic. One advantage is the capability of the surgeon to fully assess the elbow intra-articularly. Second, the incision is often considered less appealing to both patients and surgeons than portal-site incisions. Read More

Arthroscopic Versus Open Lateral Release for the Treatment of Lateral Epicondylitis: A Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial.

Arthroscopy 2018 Dec;34(12):3177-3184

Pan Am Clinic, Winnipeg, Canada.

Purpose: The purpose of this randomized clinical trial was to determine whether quality of life and function, as measured using subjective questionnaires and clinical assessment, are different after open versus arthroscopic debridement of the pathologic extensor carpi radialis brevis origin in the treatment of lateral epicondylitis at 1 year postoperatively.

Methods: Patients older than 16 years with a minimum of 6 months of nonoperative management for lateral epicondylitis were recruited into this prospective, single-blinded randomized clinical trial. Patients were randomized intraoperatively to undergo open or arthroscopic release. Read More

Tendinosis-like changes in denervated rat Achilles tendon.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2018 Nov 30;19(1):426. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Department of Integrative Medical Biology, Section for Anatomy, Umeå University, Johan Bures väg 12, 901 87, Umeå, Sweden.

Background: Tendon disorders are common and lead to significant disability and pain. Our knowledge of the 'tennis elbow', the 'jumpers knee', and Achilles tendinosis has increased over the years, but changes in denervated tendons is yet to be described in detail. The aim of the present study was to investigate the morphological and biochemical changes in tendon tissue following two weeks of denervation using a unilateral sciatic nerve transection model in rat Achilles tendons.

Chronic lateral epicondylitis: challenges and solutions.

Open Access J Sports Med 2018 30;9:243-251. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, UC Irvine Health, Orange, CA, USA,

Lateral epicondylitis (LE) is a significant source of pain and dysfunction resulting from repetitive gripping or wrist extension, radial deviation, and/or forearm supination. Although most cases are self-limiting over several years, controversy exists regarding the best treatment strategy for chronic LE. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), physical therapy (PT), shockwave therapy, and injections with corticosteroids or biologics are all conservative treatment options for LE. Read More

Arthroscopic Treatment of Lateral Elbow Pain Mimicking Lateral Epicondylitis: Long-term Follow-up of a Unique Surgical Protocol.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2019 Mar;23(1):27-30

Leni & Peter W. May Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY.

Hypothesis And/or Background: The failure rate of extensor carpi radialis brevis debridement for refractory lateral epicondylitis is reported around 15%. Our novel arthroscopic treatment is predicated on the hypothesis that lateral epicondylitis is an intra-articular problem related to a variation of the capsule-meniscal anatomy that impinges on the radiocapitellar joint. We report long-term outcomes of 35 patients treated with a novel arthroscopic resection of their capsulosynovial fringe. Read More
