A Combined Revision Surgical Technique for Failed Operative Lateral Epicondylitis With Concomitant Radial Tunnel Syndrome.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2022 May 5. Epub 2022 May 5.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, WellStar Atlanta Medical Center, The Hand and Upper Extremity Center of Georgia, Atlanta, GA.

Lateral epicondylitis afflicts a large percentage of the population with most recovering through conservative treatment. The 5% to 10% of patients who undergo operative intervention are met with mixed results. Those that fail to improve often demonstrate a complex presentation of inadequate debridement of the "angiofibroblastic tissue," missed concomitant radial tunnel syndrome, and iatrogenic residual devascularized tissue resulting from the index procedure.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2022 May 20. Epub 2022 May 20.

Department of Clinical Anatomy, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: To improve the clinical results of lateral ulnar collateral ligament (LUCL) reconstruction of the elbow joint, better understanding of the anatomy of the aponeuroses and joint capsule could be relevant. This study considers the previously described anatomy of the LUCL in relation to the related aponeuroses and joint capsule rather than as a discrete ligament. We hypothesized that the deep aponeuroses of the superficial extensor muscles and supinator form a relevant portion of the joint capsule previously defined as the LUCL. Read More

Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, University Hospital Queen Giovanna-ISUL, Medical University of Sofia, Sofia 1527, Bulgaria.

Lateral epicondylitis (LE) is a chronic aseptic inflammatory condition caused by repetitive microtrauma and excessive overload of the extensor carpi radialis brevis muscle. This is the most common cause of musculoskeletal pain syndrome in the elbow, inducing significant pain and limitation of the function of the upper limb. It affects approximately 1-3% of the population and is frequently seen in racquet sports and sports associated with functional overload of the elbow, such as tennis, squash, gymnastics, acrobatics, fitness, and weight lifting.
