Tendon stimulation the key to repair in 'tennis elbow'
Date:6/11/2014

New data presented today at the European League Against Rheumatism Annual Congress (EULAR 2014) show that ultrasound-guided injections of growth factors-containing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) are no more effective in treating recently developed epicondylitis than injections of saline.1

Lead researcher, Patrick Le Goux of the Hpitaux Universitaires Paris Ile-de-France Ouest, France, commented, "while PRP injections were shown to have no inherent benefit in the treatment of epicondylitis, what is exciting is that pain scores in both treatment groups decreased significantly over the course of the trial. The healing process is stimulated by the echo-guided injection of a substance and/or by the own effect of the needle (needling); the injections stimulate the process of tendon repair through an irritation effect, a technique known as prolotherapy."

Epicondylitis is a painful condition that occurs when the tendons in the elbow are overworked, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm. In lateral epicondylitis (also referred to as tennis elbow), the pain occurs primarily where the tendons of the forearm muscles attach to the bone on the outside of the elbow2 and medial epicondylitis (also referred to as golfer's elbow) where the tendons attach to the bone on the inside of the elbow. The pain of both conditions may also spread to the forearm and wrist.3

Although a large number of treatments including physiotherapy, corticosteroid injections, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are used to treat epicondylitis, there is no consensus on which is the most effective.4 Recently, local injections of growth factors containing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) were proposed as a new therapeutic technique for boosting tendon repair,5 with ultrasound guidance of the intra-tendinous injections used to optimise the procedure.6

In this latest study, patients with recent onset epicondylitis (pain ≤3 months), confirmed by MRI and/or
