The left epicondyle is already fused, but on the right the physis is still a little bit open. Plane selection is important when evaluating the common flexor and extensor tendons and requires proper training of MR imaging technologists. (e-mail. Robert Nirschl, in Morrey's the Elbow and its Disorders (Fifth Edition), 2018. Then when you follow it proximally, you will notice that this was a subcutaneous transposition. Author information: (1)Department of Radiology, University of Wisconsin Hospital, Clinical Science Center E3/311, 600 Highland Avenue, Madison, WI 53792-3252, USA. Longitudinal US image of the common extensor tendon origin in a 64-year-old man reveals a large hypoechoic region at the tendon origin, a finding indicative of a near-full-thickness tear. Notice the subchondral sclerosis seen on the T1W-image (red arrow). Select optimal MR imaging and US techniques for detecting medial and lateral epicondylitis and common coexistent conditions. In our experience, use of a high-field-strength extremity magnet maximizes patient comfort and eliminates motion without any loss in image quality from that provided by a 1.5- or 3.0-T whole-body MR imaging system. It is less common than lateral epicondylitis. The pain is caused by damage to the tendons that bend the wrist toward the palm. 1, 20 September 2017 | Journal of Orthopaedic Research, Vol. The UCL (in yellow) originates on the undersurface of the medial epicondyle just beneath the origin of the common flexor tendon. Figure 28 Photograph shows appropriate positioning of the arm and transducer for US evaluation of medial epicondylitis. Obviously someone told him to keep throwing, because he came back three years later at age 17 and you can see what can happen when they push too hard in getting these kids to become a professional. Just like in the shoulder you need to be sure to get the imaging planes correctly in a standardized way. On the next two images there is some soft tissue edema and more abnormal signal posteriorly (red arrow). The lateral collateral ligament complex consists of the RCL, annular ligament, accessory lateral collateral ligament, and LUCL (Fig 2). Axial T2-weighted fast SE MR image obtained in a 44-year-old man demonstrates a focal region of intermediate signal intensity within the common extensor tendon origin (arrow).Figure 6Download as PowerPointOpen in Image Now you remember that the axial images can be helpful. However, patient comfort and satisfaction are limiting factors, especially when the Superman position is used. Again this was diagnosed as indeterminate. This image is of a 68 year old woman who injured her arm approximately 10 years previously and now presents with increasing pain in that arm. Tendon morphology is best assessed on coronal and axial images. 28, No. The other joint is the proximal radioulnar joint with rotation allowing pronation and supination. First, the ECRB is accessed by splitting the extensor carpi radialis longus and the extensor digitorum brevis (Fig 16). In the lateral epicondylar region, this process affects the common extensor tendon; in the medial epicondylar region, the common flexor tendon is affected. There is no recognized gender predilection. Scroll through these images. Now here is the MR. It causes pain from the elbow to the wrist on the inside (medial side) of the elbow. Since that early description, the designation of little league elbow has expanded to include a host of abnormalities that affect the throwing e… Viewer. Figure 27b Severe medial epicondylitis and ulnar neuritis. Large effusion and capsular disruption posteriorly. Golfer's elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is caused by damage to the muscles and tendons that control your wrist and fingers. Reduced strength with resisted gripping and with supination and extension of the wrist also are commonly seen. Radial head is a little bit subluxed posteriorly (yellow arrow). Radial tunnel syndrome involves entrapment of the posterior interosseous nerve (a deep branch of the radial nerve) within the radial tunnel. Animals: Client-owned cats (n = 17) with MHE. US images should be obtained to depict the entirety of the common flexor tendon, from the musculotendinous junction to the tendon origin at the medial epicondyle. The osteochondral lesion of the capitellum is typically seen in throwers and gymnasts (11-15 yrs), who get a lot of wrist and elbow problems due to weight bearing. Notice that the biceps is intact. Figure 14 Moderate epicondylitis. 1, 31 December 2015 | Australasian Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine, Vol. However, given its high false-positive rate, real-time US may be most useful for determining the extent of tendon damage in patients who are symptomatic (17). Symptoms of weakness in grip strength are also common. ANT = anterior, ECRL = extensor carpi radialis longus, ECU = extensor carpi ulnaris. However this can be quite painful. Figure 32 Severe medial epicondylitis. Viewer Just like in an ACL-graft we can see the low signal of the graft going all the way down. Coronal GRE MR image shows complete disruption of the MCL (black arrow) and a partial-thickness tear of the common flexor tendon at its undersurface (white arrow). 12, 11 August 2014 | BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, Vol. For professional athletes, earlier surgery may be indicated if there is evidence of tendon disruption at physical examination and imaging evaluation. We use the same system at US as at MR imaging to grade lateral epicondylitis as mild, moderate, or severe (Figs 13–15). The MR-arthrogram shows some bone marrow edema on the coronal view. marrow edema of the coronoid process due to the fracture (red arrow). Medial Plantar Proper Digital Neuropathy ... Stoller DW, ed. This is the counterpart of the lateral epicondylitis and also known as the golfer's elbow. The pathologic features of medial epicondylitis are similar to those of lateral epicondylitis and include degeneration, angiofibroblastic change, and an inadequate reparative response, leading to tendinosis and tearing (1–3,9). In a study by Miller et al (19), the sensitivity of US for the detection of both lateral and medial epicondylitis ranged from 64% to 82%, whereas that of MR imaging ranged from 90% to 100%. Again the characteristic pattern of marrow edema that is seen in posterior elbow dislocation with contusion in the anterior side of the radial head (red arrow) and on the posterior side of the capitellum. 56, No. In severe cases, muscle strain is commonly seen in the palmaris longus and flexor digitorum superficialis (Fig 25). Here some more views of a different patient. This radiograph is of a 26 year old professional baseball player who had a UCL reconstruction. Clinical history: 40 year old male carpenter with lateral elbow pain. Although the literature about surgical treatment of medial epicondylitis is limited, good to excellent results are reported, with 85% of patients returning to preinjury activity levels and reporting overall satisfaction (9). 3, Contemporary Diagnostic Radiology, Vol. The medial supporting structures are the most commonly injured ligaments in the knee. (a) Proton density–weighted fat-saturated MR image obtained in a 60-year-old man depicts a region of slightly increased signal intensity due to fluid accumulation within the superficial fibers of the common extensor tendon, a finding suggestive of a small partial-thickness tear (arrow). Improper lifting, throwing or hitting, as well as too little warmup or poor conditioning, also can contribute to golfer's elbow. The accessory lateral collateral ligament helps stabilize the annular ligament but is inconsistently present (11). Next to the radiobicipital bursa (yellow arrow), also an interosseous bursa (red arrow) was described by Abdalla Skaf in Radiology in the article entitled: Bicipitoradial Bursitis: MR Imaging Findings. Knowledge of the clinical and imaging diagnosis of this entity is essential for the appropriate management of patients. Figure 11 Photograph shows appropriate positioning of the elbow and transducer for US evaluation of lateral epicondylitis. The anterior bundle is the strongest component and is the primary restraint against valgus forces. Figure 8a Severe lateral epicondylitis. The diagnosis of epicondylitis hinges on a careful history and physical examination. The T2W-fatsat image shows marrow edema and maybe there is a subchondral fracture. 3, Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Vol. Lateral epicondylitis is most often the result of repetitive stress injury but may result from direct trauma. Address correspondence to D.M.W. At its origin, the normal common flexor tendon appears as a continuous band of longitudinally oriented fibers with uniform echogenicity (Fig 29). The control group consisted of 26 patients of similar age with no clinical evidence of medial epicondylitis. However the posterior bundle is not o.k. Scroll through the images. The lesion was located at the insertion of a latissimus dorsi tendon to the humerus (yellow arrow). Figure 13 Mild epicondylitis. There is partial tearing, but it is very extensive. 6, 30 September 2014 | Archives of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery, Vol. Elbow synovial fold syndrome is an uncommon entity that is often confused with lateral epicondylitis. Medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow) is a type of tendinitis that affects the inside of the elbow. Viewer ANT = anterior, ECRL = extensor carpi radialis longus, ECU = extensor carpi ulnaris.Figure 7bDownload as PowerPointOpen in Image Pirogova, No. 23, No. In 1960, Brogdon and Crow1described two cases of separation and fragmentation of the medial epicondylar apophysis in the elbows of little league pitchers, and coined the term “little leaguer’s elbow.” Both pitchers presented with pain and tenderness over the medial epicondyle in their pitching arms. Clinically, the accurate identification of injuries to the medial supporting struct… The mass is very heterogeneous as is the enhancement. 33, No. Crossref . Figure 19 Anteroposterior radiographic view of the right elbow in a 48-year-old man with chronic medial elbow pain shows a region of calcium deposition (arrow) adjacent to the medial epicondyle. There can be tendinosis, partial tear and complete tear with or without retraction. If there are signs of ulnar neuritis and medial instability, MR imaging is preferred.

Fracture of the anteromedial facet of the coronoid process with injuries to the anterior and posterior bundles of the ulnar collateral ligament and to the lateral ligaments, consistent with varus posteromedial rotatory instability of the elbow (PMRI). If you scroll through the MR-images you can see the tunnel in the medial epicondyle. 41, No. Throwing athletes who have repetitive valgus stress on the elbow and repetitive flexor forearm musculature pull develop an overuse syndrome that affects the medial common flexor origin. Medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow) is a type of tendinitis that affects the inside of the elbow. The result may be medial epicondylitis, a condition that is primarily due to repetitive stress or overuse of the flexor-pronator musculature, just as cumulative stress or overuse of the common extensor mechanism results in lateral epicondylitis. Figure 5b Normal LUCL and RCL. The radiocapitellar and ulnohumeral joints should be examined for focal chondral defects and signs of secondary osteoarthrosis.Figure 9 Severe lateral epicondylitis. The prescribed coronal plane is oriented parallel to a line drawn along the anterior surface of the condyles in the axial plane, and the sagittal plane is perpendicular to that coronal plane. Medial epicondylitis, also called golfer's elbow, was first described in 1882 by Henry J Morris. If you cannot make a specific diagnosis, just call the mass indeterminate an do a biopsy, because in many cases you cannot tell the diagnosis. Flexion contractures may develop in professional athletes because of muscular hypertrophy (9). Coronal proton density–weighted fat-saturated MR image obtained in a 30-year-old woman shows a normal appearance of the common extensor tendon at the site of its attachment to the lateral epicondyle (arrow).Figure 4Download as PowerPointOpen in Image First study the images. Figure 27b Severe medial epicondylitis and ulnar neuritis. It is due of chronic stress to the common extensor tendon, which results in partial tearing and tendinosis. Plain radiograph of the elbow was unremarkable. Longitudinal US image of the common flexor origin in a 72-year-old man shows a tendon tear that is near full thickness, with distal linear foci of calcium deposition (black arrows) and marked heterogeneity at the musculotendinous junction (white arrow).Figure 32Download as PowerPointOpen in Image 1, 1 December 2015 | The Korean Journal of Medicine, Vol. The use of MR imaging is therefore more commonly indicated in medial epicondylitis than in lateral epicondylitis. The biceps tendon is indicated by the red arrow and demonstrates tendinosis and partial tearing. 6, 4 March 2017 | Archives of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery, Vol. (b) Coronal GRE MR image at the level of the lateral epicondyle shows a fluid-filled gap (arrow) at the site of the expected ECRB tendon origin. If the condition fails to respond to a disciplined nonsurgical treatment regimen of 3 to 6 months’ duration, surgery is recommended. In these cases we usually ask for a comparison view, because it can be very subtle. It turned out to be rice bodies. Here images of a 26 year old female who also came with a mass in the peritrochlear region. 10, Magnetic Resonance Imaging Clinics of North America, Vol. It was clinically diagnosed as medial epicondylitis and ultrasound shows changes of medial epicondylitis. For instance, both medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow) and lateral. (b) Coronal GRE MR image at the level of the lateral epicondyle shows a fluid-filled gap (arrow) at the site of the expected ECRB tendon origin.Figure 8aDownload as PowerPointOpen in Image Molecular composition and pathology of entheses on the medial and lateral epicondyles of the humerus: a structural basis for epicondylitis. Thereby tendon degeneration appears instead of repair. Viewer (b) Sagittal STIR MR image shows a central region with the signal intensity of fluid in the proximal common extensor fibers, with a surrounding rim of intermediate signal intensity (arrow), findings consistent with a partial-thickness tear and tendinosis. Muscle anomaly (eg, an accessory anconeus muscle) as is present in this case. Another high-signal-intensity focus is seen at the site of the ECRB origin on the lateral epicondyle (arrowhead). The posterior and transverse ligaments form the floor of the cubital tunnel just deep to the ulnar nerve. It is important to evaluate the LUCL, RCL, extensor muscles, synovium, cartilage, and sub-chondral bone for coexistent abnormalities that may require a modification of surgical management. Viewer UCL repair is done by placing tunnels in the medial epicondyle. It is one of the medial patellar stabilizers together with the medial retinaculum and the vastus medialis oblique muscle 5. Lateral epicondylitis, initially described by Morris as “lawn tennis elbow” in 1882 and now most commonly termed tennis elbow, may occur in patients performing any activity that involves repeated supination and pronation of the forearm with the elbow in extension (1–8). Maneuvers such as the “chair test” (in which the patient is asked to lift a chair with a pronated hand) and the “coffee cup test” (in which the patient picks up a full cup of coffee) evoke focal pain at the lateral epicondyle (7). Initial clinical management of medial epicondylitis involves cessation of the provocative activity, application of cold packs to the elbow, and oral NSAID therapy. Study design: Prospective cohort study. 1, Orthopaedics & Traumatology: Surgery & Research, Vol. Notice that there is also some edema where the ulnar collateral ligament attaches, so there is also some tearing of the UCL. Figure 7b Moderate lateral epicondylitis. Low-grade tears are those affecting less than 20% of the tendon thickness; intermediate tears, 20% to 80%; and high-grade tears, more than 80% (Figs 6–8).Figure 6 Mild lateral epicondylitis. Remember that the biceps tendon does not have a tendon sheaht, so tenosynovitis is not a possibility. A tear can also occur in a fall on the outstretched hand. This can be explained if we look at the articular surface of the olecranon. The cubital tunnel is bounded by the medial epicondyle anteriorly, the MCL laterally, and the flexor carpi ulnaris posteromedially. 54, No. 11, 1 June 2014 | Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine, Vol. 5, 27 January 2016 | Radiology, Vol. 23, No. 55, No. Although symptoms may resolve after a few months of conservative therapy, surgery in severe, recalcitrant, or complicated cases typically brings excellent results with relatively minimal recovery time. 8, European Journal of Integrative Medicine, Vol. Severe epicondylitis consists of a near-complete or complete tear, characterized as a fluid-filled gap separating the tendon from its origin at the lateral epicondyle. A tendon is a tough cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones. Both MR imaging and US may be used in the evaluation of medial epicondylitis. [] This condition is an overuse syndrome that is characterized by pain at the flexor-pronator tendinous origin and is seen in sports activities with repetitive valgus stress, flexion, and pronation, such as occurs in golf, baseball, tennis, fencing, and swimming. The literature reports a high success rate for surgical procedures, with overall patient satisfaction and full return to preinjury activities (1,8–10). Scroll through the axial images of the biceps tendon from the musculotendinous junction to the attachment on the radial tuberositas. Here another case. Epicondylitis occurs due to damage to the tendons in the forearm. Medial epicondylitis is also known as golfer elbow, baseball elbow, suitcase elbow, or forehand tennis elbow. Figure 1 Drawing shows the musculotendinous anatomy of the lateral aspect of the elbow, near the site of the tendon origin on the lateral epicondyle. However, as noted in the earlier discussion of lateral epicondylitis, an MR imaging– or US-based grading system with clinical, surgical, and outcome relevance has yet to be developed. Notice that the UCL is abnormal with some areas of very high signal indicating a partial tear. The control group consisted of 26 patients of similar age with no clinical evidence of medial epicondylitis. (b) Coronal GRE MR image at the level of the lateral epicondyle shows a fluid-filled gap (arrow) at the site of the expected ECRB tendon origin.Figure 8bDownload as PowerPointOpen in Image Objective: To describe the clinical signs and histologic changes in cats clinically affected with medial humeral epicondylitis (MHE) and evaluate long-term outcome after either conservative or surgical treatment. Immediately after surgery, with the elbow in flexion at 90° and the forearm in neutral position, a posterior plaster splint is applied. When surgery is contemplated, magnetic resonance imaging or ultrasonography is useful for evaluating the extent of disease, detecting associated pathologic processes, excluding other primary sources of elbow pain, and planning the surgical approach. Notice that there is some marrow edema in the sublime tubercle. The anterior forearm contains several muscles that are involved with flexing the digits of the hand, and flexing and pronating the wrist. Figure 16 Intraoperative photograph, obtained during a modified Nirschl procedure for treatment of lateral epicondylitis, shows a portion of the torn ECRB tendon origin (arrow) within the forceps. On the sagittal image it is clear that it is only partial tearing. The same feature, if located under the MCL in the medial epicondylar region, is considered abnormal (21,22). On MR this is the most important structure. We prefer a mini-open approach that allows a shorter recovery time, and we encourage early postoperative mobilization therapy. Figure 27a Severe medial epicondylitis and ulnar neuritis. Due to the valgus overload there are shear forces on the posteromedial part of the humeroulnar joint. Here another example. The article reviews the anatomy, pathophysiology, and clinical and imaging manifestations of epicondylitis in the lateral and medial epicondylar regions of the elbow separately. (b) Axial T2-weighted fast SE MR image demonstrates increased signal intensity in the ulnar nerve with associated loss of normal signal in the surrounding fat (arrow), findings indicative of ulnar neuritis.Figure 27aDownload as PowerPointOpen in Image Pain following a gym workout that has persisted for over a month and doesn't seem to resolve with rest. First study the bones and then continue with the ligaments and the tendons and then the surrounding structures. 11, 7 July 2011 | Zeitschrift für Rheumatologie, Vol. Notice on the T1W-image that there is no atrophy. Medial epicondylitis, or "golfer's elbow," is similar to the more common lateral epicondylitis ("tennis elbow") in many respects. Appearance of normal anatomic structures. 35, No. The final diagnosis at biopsy was Lymphoma. It has been reported that 5% of those with an initial diagnosis of lateral epicondylitis have radial tunnel syndrome (18). In this patient the cartilage is taken from the non-weight bearing part of the knee. However when we look at the insertion of the brachialis tendon on the coronoid process, there is tearing of the tendon with a lot of bone marrow edema as seen on the fat suppressed T2W-image. Axial images are obtained perpendicular to the long axis of the humerus at the elbow. Osteochondral lesion is the new name for osteochondritis dissecans or OCD. Typically the radiocapitellar joint is punctured from lateral with the patient prone and the arm flexed 90 degrees overhead (red arrow). Viewer The posterior band of the ulnar collateral band forms the floor of the tunnel, while the retinaculum forms the roof. Viewer. Figure 2 Drawing shows the ligamentous anatomy of the lateral aspect of the elbow. . Objective: To describe the clinical signs and histologic changes in cats clinically affected with medial humeral epicondylitis (MHE) and evaluate long-term outcome after either conservative or surgical treatment.
