Sclerosing polidocanol injections targeting the area with neovessels (vascularity) have been demonstrated to give promising clinical results in patients with chronic painful Achilles and patellar tendinosis. Recently, we demonstrated vascularity in the extensor origin in patients with chronic painful tennis elbow, but not in controls with pain-free elbows. In this pilot study, 11 patients (four men and seven women, mean age 46 years) with the diagnosis of tennis elbow in altogether 13 elbows… Expand
Less Promising Results with Sclerosing Ethoxysclerol Injections for Midportion Achilles Tendinopathy
TLDR
This study did not confirm the high beneficial value of sclerosing neovascularization in patients with midportion Achilles tendinopathy, and it is important to stress that injection of Ethoxysclerol may not be as promising as was thought. Expand
Pain relief after intratendinous injections in patients with tennis elbow: results of a randomised study
TLDR
US and CD guided intratendinous injections gave pain relief in patients with tennis elbow, and polidocanol and lidocaine plus epinephrine injections gave similar results. Expand
Ultrasound-Guided Sclerosis of Neovessels in Patellar Tendinopathy
TLDR
Sclerosing treatment with polidocanol resulted in a moderate improvement in knee function and reduced pain in a heterogeneous group of patients with patellar tendinopathy, but few of the patients were cured, and the majority still had reduced function and substantial pain after 24 months of follow-up. Expand
Comparison of corticosteroid, autologous blood or sclerosant injections for chronic tennis elbow.
TLDR
Injections of corticosteroid cannot be recommended over polidocanol or autologous blood, because despite beneficial short-term effect there were inferior long-term effects. Expand
Topical polidocanol application in combination with static stretching in tendinopathies: a prospective pilot study.
TLDR
The combination of static training and topical polidocanol application seems to be successful in the treatment of tendinopathies and SWE correlates better than B-Mode or PD with symptom improvement. Expand
The efficacy of sclerosing injections in the treatment of painful tendinopathy
TLDR
There is insufficient robust evidence to support the use of sclerosing injections in the treatment of painful tendinopathy with concomitant neovascularity, and further clinical, imaging and laboratory studies investigating the relationship between neov vascularity, tendon pain and its management are required. Expand
A two-year sonographic follow-up after intratendinous injection therapy in patients with tennis elbow
TLDR
Doppler findings, but not structure, might be related to the clinical result after intratendinous injection treatment of tennis elbow, which is a tendinopathy affecting the upper extremity. Expand
Sclerosing therapy and eccentric training in flexor carpi radialis tendinopathy in a tennis player
TLDR
Sclerosing therapy using polidocanol under power- and laser-Doppler guidance can decrease capillary blood flow by 25% with resolution of the neovascularisation at the point of pain. Expand
Ultrasound-guided injections of hyperosmolar dextrose for overuse patellar tendinopathy: a pilot study
TLDR
An improved hypoechoic appearance of the tendon was associated with decreased pain scores, suggesting that dextrose injections may modify patellar tendinopathy at the tissue level and that fibrillar changes may play a role in tendon nociception. Expand
Injection treatment for chronic midportion Achilles tendinopathy: do we need that many alternatives?

Sclerosing injections to areas of neo-vascularisation reduce pain in chronic Achilles tendinopathy: a double-blind randomised controlled trial
TLDR
In injections with the sclerosing substance Polidocanol have the potential to reduce tendon pain during activity in patients with chronic painful mid-portion Achilles tendinopathy. Expand
Sclerosing therapy in chronic Achilles tendon insertional pain-results of a pilot study
TLDR
Treatment only focusing on sclerosing the area with neovessels showed promising short-term clinical results in this small pilot study, and the findings support further studies, preferably in a randomised manner. Expand
Neovascularisation in chronic painful patellar tendinosis—promising results after sclerosing neovessels outside the tendon challenge the need for surgery
TLDR
Treatment with sclerosing injections, targeting the area with neovessels in patellar tendinosis, has the potential to cure the pain in the tendons and also allow the patients to go back to full patellAR-tendon loading activity. Expand
Ultrasound guided sclerosis of neovessels in painful chronic Achilles tendinosis: pilot study of a new treatment
TLDR
Sclerosing neovessels appears to be an effective treatment for painful chronic Achilles tendinosis, suggesting that neovessel play a key part in causing chronic tendon pain. Expand
Extensor origin vascularity related to pain in patients with Tennis elbow
TLDR
The area with vascularity found in the extensor origin seems to be related to pain, which correspond with the vasculo-neural in growth that has been demonstrated in the chronic painful Achilles tendon, and possibly have implications for treatment. Expand
Is vasculo-neural ingrowth the cause of pain in chronic Achilles tendinosis?
TLDR
Findings which support neovessels and accompanying nerves being the possible source of pain in chronic mid-portion Achilles tendinosis are demonstrated. Expand
Botulinum toxin injection in the treatment of tennis elbow. A double-blind, randomized, controlled, pilot study.
TLDR
A double-blind, randomized, controlled, pilot trial comparing injections of botulinum toxin type A with those of a placebo (normal saline solution) in the treatment of chronic tennis elbow found no significant difference between the two groups with regard to grip strength, pain, or quality of life. Expand
Corticosteroid injections for lateral epicondylitis: a systematic review
TLDR
Although the available evidence shows superior short‐term effects of corticosteroid injections for lateral epicondylitis, it is not possible to draw firm conclusions on the effectiveness of injections, due to the lack of high quality studies. Expand
Corticosteroid injections for lateral epicondylitis: a systematic overview.
TLDR
The existing evidence on corticosteroid injections for the treatment of tennis elbow is not conclusive, but the treatment seems to be suitable for application in general practice, further trials in this setting are needed. Expand
Where is the pain coming from in tendinopathy? It may be biochemical, not only structural, in origin
TLDR
Traditional dogma would have it that pain in tendinopathy arises through one of two mechanisms, but a number of studies provide data inconsistent with either theory. Expand
