BACKGROUND: A forearm band is frequently used for lateral epicondylitis worldwide. However, evidence regarding its efficacy has been insufficient. The objective of this prospective, randomized, controlled trial was to analyze the effects of a forearm band for treatment of lateral epicondylitis at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months. METHODS: Patients with lateral epicondylitis were randomly allocated into a band (n = 55) or non-band (n = 55) group. Patients in the band group were instructed to wear a forearm band for more than 6 h daily for at least 6 months...

The present study aimed to assess the musculoskeletal and peripheral nervous systems in Iraq-Iran war veterans with bilateral upper extremity amputation. METHODS: The study consisted of taking a history and clinical examinations including demographic data, presence and location of pain, level of amputation, passive and active ranges of movement of the joints across the upper and lower extremities and spine, manual palpation, neurological examination, blood circulation pulses and issues related to a prosthetic limb...

INTRODUCTION: Ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE) is a common peripheral compression neuropathy and in most cases occurs at 2 sites, the retroepicondylar groove or the cubital tunnel. With regard to a potential therapeutic approach with perineural corticosteroid injection the aim of this study was to evaluate the distribution of injection fluid applied at a standard site. METHODS: We performed ultrasound-guided (US-guided) perineural injections to the ulnar nerve halfway between the olecranon and the medial epicondyle in 21 upper limbs from 11 non-embalmed cadavers...

BACKGROUND: Medial epicondyle fractures are predominantly seen in adolescent, male patients. Historically, nonoperative intervention was the mainstay of treatment. With increasing upper extremity demands of young athletes and reports of valgus instability after nonoperative treatment, there has been an increased interest in operative indications. Controversy regarding proper imaging and measurement of displacement complicates decision-making algorithms. Review of recent literature is required for improved decision making...

INTRODUCTION: Recurrent complete ulnar nerve dislocation has been perceived as a risk factor for development of ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE). However, the role of dislocation in the pathogenesis of UNE remains uncertain. METHODS: We studied 133 patients with complete ulnar nerve dislocation to determine if this condition is a risk factor for UNE. In all, the nerve was palpated as it rolled over the medial epicondyle during elbow flexion. RESULTS: Of 56 elbows with unilateral dislocation UNE localized contralaterally in 17 (30...

BACKGROUND: When non-operative treatment of tennis elbow fails; a surgical procedure can be performed to improve the associated symptoms. Different surgical techniques for treatment of lateral epicondylitis are prescribed. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcomes of surgical treatment for tennis elbow based on small incision techniques. METHODS: This technique was performed on 24 consecutive patients between June 2011 and July 2013. Outcomes were assessed using the Patient-Rated Tennis Elbow Evaluation (PRTEE), Nirschl's staging system and visual analog scale (VAS) for pain and satisfaction criteria...

[Purpose] The aims of the present study were to investigate the most suitable location for vibroarthrography measurements of the knee joint to distinguish a healthy knee from knee osteoarthritis using Wavelet transform analysis. [Subjects and Methods] Participants were 16 healthy females and 17 females with severe knee osteoarthritis. Vibroarthrography signals were measured on the medial and lateral epicondyles, mid-patella, and tibia using stethoscopes with a microphone while subjects stood up from a seated position...

OBJECTIVE: To validate the findings of preoperative motor short-segment nerve conduction studies (SSNCSs) by intraoperative SSNCSs in patients with cubital tunnel syndrome. METHODS: We prospectively recruited patients with ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE) localized distal to the medial epicondyle (ME). Preoperatively, motor SSNCSs and ultrasonography (US) were performed. Immediately after surgical dissection of the humeroulnar aponeurotic arcade (HUA), intraoperative near-nerve motor SSNCSs were performed, and compared to preoperative findings...

BACKGROUND: We describe the preliminary clinical results of a patellar stabilization technique to treat bidirectional patellar subluxation (BPS). METHODS: Patients: six patients (one male, five females; mean age 30.2years) underwent this procedure with a minimum of 24months follow-up. Patients were assessed for clinical instability, patellar complications, and need for revision surgery. Patient functional outcomes were evaluated using the criteria of Crosby and Insall and the Kujala Anterior Knee Pain Scale at the time of final follow-up...

BACKGROUND: The Nirschl technique and arthroscopic debridement are common surgical procedures for chronic lateral elbow tendinopathy. The purpose of this study was to compare outcomes following the use of these techniques to treat chronic lateral elbow tendinopathy. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 59 elbows of 55 patients who did not improve after conservative treatment. Twenty-nine elbows of 26 patients were treated with the Nirschl procedure (Nirschl group), and 30 elbows of 29 patients were treated with arthroscopic debridement (arthroscopy group)...

[Purpose] The aim of this study was to investigate the usefulness of ultrasonography for the diagnosis of polyneuropathy in diabetic patients by examination of the median and ulnar nerves. [Subjects and Methods] Sixty-three diabetic patients and fourteen controls were enrolled in the study. Nerve conduction studies were performed on both upper and lower limbs. Median and ulnar nerve cross-sectional areas were measured at the wrist and forearm levels in 140 hands by ultrasound. [Results] The median nerve cross-sectional area was increased at the hook of hamatum, pisiform bone, and radioulnar joint levels in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome...

Markers put on the arm undergo large soft tissue artefact (STA). Using markers on the forearm, multibody kinematic optimization (MKO) helps improve the accuracy of the arm kinematics especially its longitudinal rotation. However deleterious effect of STA may persist and affect other segment estimate. The objective was to present an innovative multibody kinematic optimization algorithm with projection of markers onto a requested axis of the local system of coordinates, to cancel their deleterious effect on this degree-of-freedom...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate for ulnar nerve instability following incrementally widened in situ decompression. A standard release of the ulnar nerve was performed in 16 cadaveric elbows, extending from 7cm distal to the medial epicondyle, and then released proximally for a total of 10 cm in 2-cm increments. Eight of the 16 elbows (50%) displayed subluxation of the ulnar nerve following complete in situ decompression. The rate of subluxation was found to increase with increasing length of proximal decompression...

STUDY DESIGN: Translation and validation of algo-functional questionnaire. INTRODUCTION: The lateral elbow tendinopathy is a common injury in tennis players and physical workers. The Patient-Rated Tennis Elbow Evaluation (PRTEE) Questionnaire was specifically designed to measure pain and functional limitations in patients with lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow). First developed in English, this questionnaire has since been translated into several languages. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The aims of the study were to translate and cross-culturally adapt the PRTEE questionnaire into French and to evaluate the reliability and validity of this translated version of the questionnaire (PRTEE-F)...

BACKGROUND: Medial epicondyle fractures may occur in isolation or with associated elbow dislocation. In the absence of open fracture or fragment incarceration, nonoperative management with immobilization has been shown to result in generally successfully outcomes comparable with those reported after surgical fixation. However, no comparative investigation has assessed outcomes after nonoperative treatment based on the presence or absence of elbow dislocation. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted investigating all studies in the literature reporting nonoperative outcomes for isolated medial epicondyle fractures and fracture-dislocations...
