OBJECTIVE To compare open and arthroscopic methods for treatment of recalcitrant lateral epicondylitis. METHODS A prospective trial of 26 patients (28 elbows) with recalcitrant lateral epicondylitis were treated between May 2006 and September 2008. The mean duration of conservative care was 23. 0 months (4 - 60 months). The mean follow-up was 17.4 months (4 - 32 months). The patients were randomized divided into two groups, 13 elbows with an open Nirschl procedure and 15 with an arthroscopic… Expand
Midterm Results of Arthroscopic Treatment for Recalcitrant Lateral Epicondylitis of the Elbow.
Arthroscopic surgery seems to be an effective method with few complications in patients suffering from an elbow recalcitrant lateral epicondylitis in the midterm follow-up, and the mean grip strength of the operated and nonoperated sides was not significantly different after the surgery. Expand
Open Versus Arthroscopic Treatment of Chronic Lateral Epicondylitis and Worker’s Compensation
The arthroscopic technique offers advantages of earlier return to work and shorter recovery period along with additional advantages of joint inspection and ability to treat coexisting pathologies. Expand
utcomes of arthroscopic lateral epicondylitis release : Should we reat earlier ?
Background: When managed conservatively, lateral epicondylitis often subsides only after considerable time, during which social and occupational activities are severely disrupted. If conservativeExpand
Comparative Study: Arthroscopic Versus Open Tennis Elbow Release
Both arthroscopic and open release are similar and effective in the treatment of resistant tennis elbow as noticed by improvement in MEPS, DASH score, and VAS at the end of follow up. Expand
Outcomes of arthroscopic lateral epicondylitis release: Should we treat earlier?
Good clinical outcomes support treatment with arthroscopic release after only 6 months of conservative management, andSymptom duration showed no correlations with any of the clinical outcome measures. Expand
Clinical Outcomes of Open versus Arthroscopic Surgery for Lateral Epicondylitis, Evidence from a Systematic Review.
It is suggested that despite no superiority for each techniques regarding the pain relief, subjective function, and better rehabilitation, arthroscopic method have been associated with less complications. Expand
Functional outcomes of arthroscopic treatment of lateral epicondylitis.
LE treated with the arthroscopic method, with its low complication rate, successful degenerated tendon debridement, and decortication of the lateral epicondyle, is a useful method for intervention in pathologies such as annular plica, loose body, synovial hypertrophy, and radiocapitellar chondropathy.

Extracapsular subcutaneous endoscopic treatment for refractory lateral epicondylalgia: technique, retrospective results, and prognostic factors.
Extracapsular subcutaneous method of refractory lateral epicondylalgia has satisfactory and stable clinical results with high safety and young age, no microfracture, and postoperative plaster fixation were associated with good long-term prognosis. Expand
Arthroscopic lateral epicondylitis release using the "bayonet" technique.
The arthroscopic surgical technique described in this article has been consistently used by the senior author for the treatment of recalcitrant lateral epicondylitis for more than 5 years without the occurrence of any major complications and appears to be a safe, reliable, and efficacious surgical intervention.

Utility of Percutaneous Ultrasonic Tenotomy for Tendinopathies: A Systematic Review
PUT resulted in decreased pain/disability scores and improved functional outcome scores for chronic elbow tendinopathy and plantar fasciitis and is a minimally invasive treatment technique that can be considered in patients with tendinopathic refractory to conservative treatment measures. Expand
