Differential diagnoses of lateral elbow pain. Diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms

Lateral elbow pain is often associated with tennis elbow. As a result patients receive a false treatment and there is a high rate of unsatisfactory postoperative results.
There are numerous pathologies which can be presented as a tennis elbow. That is why it is highly important to know these pathologies and the clinical examination for each one of them
Our diagnostic algorithm consists of the clinical examination and an MRI to evaluate the soft tissues, exophytes, the extend of a rupture of the extensors and cartilage. A diagnostic elbow arthroscopy is mandatory prior to any further surgical intervention of the elbow, especially as an inspection tool of instability by using a 4 mm trocar.
In conclusion, we have to consider all the lateral elbow pathologies and not automatically interpret a lateral elbow pain as tennis elbow.
