Lateral epicondylalgia (LE) is the most common chronic painful condition affecting the elbow in the general population. Although major advances have been accomplished in recent years in the understanding of LE, the underlying physiopathology is still a reason for debate. Differences in clinical presentation and evolution of the symptoms among patients, suggest the need for revisiting the current knowledge about subjacent mechanisms that attempt to explain pain and functional loss.

Psychologic Factors Do Not Affect Placebo Responses After Upper Extremity Injections: A Randomized Trial.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2018 Nov;476(11):2219-2228

Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care, Dell Medical School, The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, USA.

Background: Studies on how psychologic factors influence the placebo effect have shown conflicting results in an experimental setting. Pessimists are more likely to experience a nocebo effect (feel worse after an inert intervention), whereas other studies suggest that patients with more symptoms of depression or anxiety or greater neuroticism have a greater response to a placebo. This is important because treatment benefits are potentiated by placebo effects, and optimal utilization of this phenomenon may improve clinical outcomes. Read More

Ultrasound-guided tendon fenestration versus open-release surgery for the treatment of chronic lateral epicondylosis of the elbow: protocol for a prospective, randomised, single blinded study.

BMJ Open 2018 Jun 9;8(6):e021373. Epub 2018 Jun 9.

Department of Radiology, Centre Hospitalier de L'Universite de Montreal (CHUM), Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Introduction: Chronic lateral epicondylosis (CLE) of the elbow is a prevalent condition among middle-aged people with no consensus on optimal care management but for which surgery is generally accepted as a second intention treatment. Among conservative treatment options, ultrasound (US)-guided fenestration has shown encouraging results that should be explored before surgery is considered. The primary objective of this study is to compare the efficacy of US-guided fenestration with open-release surgery in patients with failure to improve following a minimum 6 months of conservative treatment.

Editorial Commentary: Hype, Hope and Everything in Between. What Produces the Real Effect for Blood-derived Products Including Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Arthroscopy 2018 Jun;34(6):1976-1978

Vail, Colorado (R.F.L.).

Biological approaches have a promising future in the orthopaedic field because of their potential benefits that include their minimal invasiveness, potential for accelerated healing, and promise for rapid recovery. However, as the initial hype for these therapies starts to fade, it should be replaced by solid basic and clinical science research to tailor each compound to a determined patient/pathology. Blood contains several products that can be both beneficial and detrimental for every specific tissue, and therefore a one-fits-all approach should be avoided. Read More

Usefulness of polydeoxyribonucleotide as an alternative to corticosteroids in patients with lateral epicondyitis: A case series.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 May;97(20):e10809

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Daegu Fatima Hospital, Daegu, South Korea.

Rationale: Local corticosteroid injections are commonly used as an easy, cost-effective treatment for patients with lateral epicondylitis (LE). Despite their strong anti-inflammatory effect, repeated injections of corticosteroids are not recommended in LE because they can aggravate tearing of the tendons.

Patient Concerns: A 65-year-old (Case1) man and a 59-year-old (Case2) man had a 2-month history of right lateral elbow pain exacerbation. Read More

Current advances in the treatment of medial and lateral epicondylitis.

J Orthop 2018 Mar 2;15(1):107-110. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, United States.

Despite advances elucidating the causes of lateral and medial epicondylitis, the standard of care remains conservative management with NSAIDs, physical therapy, bracing, and rest. Scar tissue formation provoked by conservative management creates a tendon lacking the biomechanical properties and mechanical strength of normal tendon. The following review analyzes novel therapies to regenerate tendon and regain function in patients with epicondylitis. Read More
