Lateral epicondylitis, or “tennis elbow,” is a symptomatic chronic degeneration of the wrist extensor tendons that involves their attachment to the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. Analgesic, percutaneous, and arthroscopic surgery techniques have been used with no significant difference in the outcome.

The patients had substantial and extended reduction of pain.
