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...

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...

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...

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...

BACKGROUND: Lateral epicondylitis (LE) occurs in almost half of all tennis players. Racket-string tension is considered to be an important factor influencing the development of LE. No literature yet exists that substantiates how string-tension affects force transmission to the elbow, as implicated in LE development. We establish a quantitative relationship between string-tension and elbow loading, analyzing tennis strokes using rackets with varying string-tensions. METHODS: Twenty recreational tennis players simulated backhand tennis strokes using three rackets strung at tensions of 200 N, 222 N and 245 N...

INTRODUCTION: Two types of ganglion cysts at the elbow have been described depending on their anatomic location. Type A ganglion cyst is located proximal to the arcade of Frohse, and type B distal to it. Compressive neuropathies of the radial nerve at the level of the radial tunnel may lead to two different clinical entities with different clinical manifestations. These different conditions depend on which branch is involved. Although compression of the deep motor branch due to a ganglion cyst has been previously described, affection of the superficial sensory branch is considered much rarer...

BACKGROUND: lateral epicondylalgia (LE) is a musculoskeletal diagnosis that causes pain and dysfunction in the lateral aspect of the elbow. Mechanical diagnosis and therapy (MDT) is an orthopaedic classification and treatment system based on mechanical and symptomatic response to repeated and sustained end-range movement. There has been no investigation of the association between MDT and patients diagnosed with LE. CASE DESCRIPTION: this report presents three patients matching the currently accepted diagnostic criteria for LE, two with a diagnosis of lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) from a medical doctor...
