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

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

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 2018 Nov 19. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

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

a "Movement, Sport and Health Sciences" Laboratory (M2S) , Univ Rennes , Bruz , France.

Waiter's serve (WS) is a specific tennis serve posture frequently observed in young players, and commonly considered as a technical error by tennis coaches. However, biomechanical impact of WS is unknown. The aims of this study were to identify the potential consequences of WS in young elite players relating to performance and injury risk, and to explain the kinematic causes of WS. Read More

Relationship between ultrasound detected tendon abnormalities, and sensory and clinical characteristics in people with chronic lateral epicondylalgia.

PLoS One 2018 24;13(10):e0205171. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Griffith University, Gold Coast, QLD, Australia.

Objective: To investigate the relationship between tendon structural changes determined by static ultrasound images (US) and sensory changes using quantitative sensory testing (QST), and clinical measures in lateral epicondylalgia.

Materials And Methods: Both elbows of 66 adult participants with a clinical diagnosis of lateral epicondylalgia were investigated. Using a standardised ultrasound image rating scale, common extensor hypoechogenicity, heterogenicity, neovascularity, and bony abnormalities at the enthesis were scored, and tendon thickness (longitudinal and transverse plane) was measured by a trained assessor.

Current Clinical Recommendations for Use of Platelet-Rich Plasma.

Curr Rev Musculoskelet Med 2018 Dec;11(4):624-634

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Stanford University, 450 Broadway St, Redwood City, CA, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This review evaluates current clinical literature on the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), including leukocyte-rich PRP (LR-PRP) and leukocyte-poor PRP (LP-PRP), in order to develop evidence-based recommendations for various musculoskeletal indications.

Recent Findings: Abundant high-quality evidence supports the use of LR-PRP injection for lateral epicondylitis and LP-PRP for osteoarthritis of the knee. Moderate high-quality evidence supports the use of LR-PRP injection for patellar tendinopathy and of PRP injection for plantar fasciitis and donor site pain in patellar tendon graft BTB ACL reconstruction.

Lateral epicondylitis is a condition whose pathophysiology is poorly understood and whose optimal treatment divides physicians. Arthroscopy has proven its worth, with results similar to or better than open surgery. The purpose of this study was to look for prognostic factors for the outcomes of arthroscopic treatment of lateral epicondylitis. Read More

Platelet-rich plasma: myth or reality?

Radiologia 2018 Nov - Dec;60(6):465-475. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Sección de Radiología Musculoesquelética, Servicio de Radiodiagnóstico, Hospital Universitario Virgen de las Nieves, Granada, España.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a preparation for therapeutic purposes that is increasingly accepted for various musculoskeletal disorders, due to its theoretical potential to repair tissues with poor healing capacity. Several randomised clinical trials have investigated the capacity of PRP to repair tendons, ligaments, muscles and cartilage, and to date there is level 1a evidence to support its use for lateral epicondylitis, osteoarthritis of the knee, plantar fasciitis and rotator cuff tendinopathy; and level 1b for patellar tendinopathy and osteoarthritis of the hip. Retrospective cohort studies and case series describe promising results with PRP for treating other musculoskeletal disorders. Read More

Pacific Geographic Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Vladivostok, Russia; Far Eastern Federal University, Vladivostok, Russia.

Bee venom acupuncture is a form of acupuncture in which bee venom is applied to the tips of acupuncture needles, stingers are extracted from bees, or bees are held with an instrument exposing the stinger, and applied to acupoints on the skin. Bee venom is a complex substance consisting of multiple anti-inflammatory compounds such as melittin, adolapin, apamin. Other substances such as phospholipase A2 can be anti-inflammatory in low concentrations and pro-inflammatory in others. Read More
