OBJECTIVE: Multimodality elbow screening of adolescent baseball players shows apparent laterality in morphology and signal intensity of the medial epicondyle on dedicated magnetic resonance imaging. We aimed to elucidate actual imaging laterality in the medial epicondyle by comparing magnetic resonance images of the dominant and contradominant elbows and to clarify the clinical meaning and mechanism of this phenomenon. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We used a 0.2-T dedicated magnetic resonance imaging scanner...

BACKGROUND: In adults, a relative "safe zone" for lateral approaches to the elbow has been well described in efforts to reduce iatrogenic injury, typically a minimum of 6 cm proximal to the lateral epicondyle. To avoid iatrogenic injury to the radial nerve intraoperatively, we investigated the distance of the nerve from the distal humeral physis in children. METHODS: All patients who had axial and coronal T1-weighted magnetic resonance imagings of the humerus and elbow between 2005 and 2015 were eligible...

INTRODUCTION: Reorganised force control may be an important adaptation following painful traumas. In this study, force control adaptations were assessed in elbow pain patients. Increasing the contraction demand may overcome pain interference on the motor control and as such act as an internal control. It was hypothesized that elbow pain patients compared with control subjects would present greater change in the direction of force when increasing the demand of the motor task. METHODS: Elbow pain patients (n=19) and healthy subjects (n=21) performed isometric wrist extensions at 5-70% of maximum voluntary contraction...

BACKGROUND: A number of surgical techniques for managing tennis elbow have been described. One of the most frequently performed involves excising the affected portion of the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB). The results of this technique, as well as most other described surgical techniques for this condition, have been reported as excellent, yet none have been compared with placebo surgery. HYPOTHESIS: The surgical excision of the degenerative portion of the ECRB offers no additional benefit over and above placebo surgery for the management of chronic tennis elbow...

The medial condyle fracture of the humerus is-in comparison to the lateral condyle fracture-a very rare Salter-Harrison IV-fracture of the elbow. In this prospective study 14 children were included and reviewed. One child had minimal displacement fracture type I, one child had type II, and 12 children had type III-fractures. One patient was treated conservatively by an upper arm cast; thirteen were surgically treated using open reduction and osteosynthetical treatment. Postoperatively the elbow was immobilized in 90° flexion and neutral position in a long-arm cast for 4-6 weeks...

Background: The lateral arm flap is used for composite defects in need of vascularized soft tissue, skin, and bone. From its original description, the distal humeral metaphysis can be included with the flap, supplied by the periosteal extensions of the posterior branch of the radial collateral artery. We sought to reexplore the anatomy of the lateral arm to determine its utility as a donor site for vascularized bone. Methods: Twelve fresh, silicone-injected cadaver dissections were performed...

Background: Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is a chronic, painful condition and is often resistant to conventional therapy. We evaluated the benefits of a combined steroid and lignocaine injection in resistant cases of tennis elbow. Materials and Methods: In this prospective, interventional study, we included chronic lateral epicondylitis patients resistant to analgesics and physiotherapy. The pain was assessed by visual analog scale (VAS), and we included patients with a baseline VAS >4...

Objective: To evaluate the age in which the secondary ossification centers of the elbow appear and fuse in the Brazilian population. Methods: Nearly thirty radiographs were randomly selected for each age group from 0 to 18 years, with a total of 544 radiographs from 439 patients, between 2010 and 2015, without abnormalities secondary to trauma, metabolic or bone tumor diseases. Radiographs were retrospectively evaluated by two blind and independent observers, according to the presence or not of the ossification centers, and the fusion between them...

Conventional surgical methods for iliotibial band friction syndrome (ITBFS) may affect the iliotibial band (ITB), delaying return to sports activities or impeding performance. We have developed a minimally invasive method. This study retrospectively analyzed the outcomes of this procedure in individuals with ITBFS. This study included 34 knees of 31 individuals. Surgery involved lengthening the central part of the ITB by splitting it into a superficial and a deep layer, maintaining the anterior and posterior fibers immediately above the lateral epicondyle...

BACKGROUND: Following the publication of high level evidence demonstrating that corticosteroid inject is not an effective treatment for lateral epicondylitis, a reduction in the rate of corticosteroid injection would be expected. We aimed to clarify the current clinical practice pattern for lateral epicondylitis and to identify which factors hinder or encourage the introduction of evidence into clinical practice. METHODS: In this administrative claims analysis, we used the 2009 to 2015 Truven MarketScan databases...

BACKGROUND: Femoral rotational alignment is considered an essential factor for total knee arthroplasty because malrotation of femoral components results in poor outcomes. To obtain proper alignment, we developed a superimposable computed tomography (CT) scan-based template to intraoperatively determine the accurate surgical epicondylar axis (SEA), and evaluated the effectiveness of this CT template. METHODS: In the experimental group (n=55), three serial slices of CT images, including medial and lateral epicondyles, were merged into a single image, and SEA was overlaid...
