Regenerative Orthopedic Case of the week – April 26, 2022

49 year old male with 3 year history of elbow pain worsening over the past year. Pain at the back of the elbow with any pressing activities, bench press, triceps work. Exam showed significant tenderness over the triceps insertion and olecranon. Prior treatment before coming to me included a blind PRP (platelet rich plasma) injection to the triceps tendon performed without ultrasound guidance which provided no improvement. MRI showed a partial triceps tendon tear and notable swelling in the bone of the olecranon process.

After discussion, patient elected to proceed with imaging guided PRP injections to the triceps tendon and into the olecranon process. Yes, he was asleep for the bone injection! Today, 3 months out from treatment, his chronic pain is 75% better. He is back to upper body workouts with light weights with minimal pain and continuing to improve.
