Abstract
PURPOSE
We report here on two cases of calcific tendinitis at the origin of the common extensor tendons of the forearm. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 42 year-old female complained of left elbow pain and flexion contracture. After obtaining the simple radiographs and MRI, surgical excision of the calcific deposits was done under the diagnosis of calcific tendinitis. A 25 year-old female complained of right elbow pain and a limited range of motion. Simple radiographs showed a calcific deposit just distal to the lateral epicondyle, and then she was managed with extracorporeal shock wave therapy.
RESULTS
The pain disappeared completely and both patients regained a full range of motion after treatments.
CONCLUSION
Calcific tendinitis at the origin of the common extensor tendons of the forearm should be included in the differential diagnosis of the lateral elbow diseases that cause pain and a limited range of motion.
Key Words: Elbow; Origin of common extensor tendons; Calcific tendinitis; Extracorporeal shock wave therapy
