Lateral epicondylitis. Dr Bahman Rasuli and Dr Bruno Di Muzio et al. Lateral epicondylitis, also known as tennis elbow , is an overuse syndrome of the common extensor tendon and predominantly affects the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) tendon. On this page It should be kept in mind that elbow epicondylitis is not limited to those persons playing tennis, golf, baseball or swimming and can result from any activity that puts the lateral or medial compartments of the elbow under similar repetitive stress and strain (e.g., hammering, turning a key, screw driver use, computer work, excessive hand shaking) lateral epicondylitis. Incompetence of the lateral collateral ligament has been attrib-uted to both iatrogenic injury during later-al epicondylitis surgery22,23 and repeated corticosteroid injections.24 Kalainov and Cohen24 suggested that a lateral pivot-shift test should be performed during every lat-eral epicondylitis surgery
Staging. Nirschl defined the following progressive stages of lateral epicondylitis: Stage 1 - Inflammatory changes that are reversible. Stage 2 - Nonreversible pathologic changes to the origin of the ECRB. Stage 3 - Rupture of the origin of the ECRB. Stage 4 - Secondary changes, such as fibrosis or calcification Lateral epicondylitis may set in all at once with no clear inciting incident. Alternatively, it can start out as mild or occasional pain but gradually get worse over a long period of time. Left untreated, the pain associated with tennis elbow can become a constant, intense agony
