Abstract


Purpose: This study was performed to evaluate surgical outcomes in calcific tendinitis around the elbow due to persistent pain despite conservative treatment.

Methods: The study retrospectively reviewed seven consecutive patients who visited Jeju National University Hospital due to pain around the elbow and underwent operative treatment due to persisting calcific lesion evidenced by radiographs and ultrasonography. The patients’ mean age was 40 years, and the average follow-up was 5 years and 10 months. Surgical procedures were performed under brachial plexus block anesthesia to remove calcific deposits at the common extensor tendon with incision around the lesion along with repair of partially ruptured tendons during the removal using nonabsorbable sutures. The patients were immobilized with a long-arm splint in a neutral position for 2 weeks after operation, followed by rehabilitation involving continuous passive motion and physical therapy for elbow joint range of motion and muscle strengthening, respectively. Intraoperative biopsy revealed inflammatory cells and microcalcification indicative of calcific tendinitis in all patients. Surgical outcome was evaluated based on patient’s subjective satisfaction under five-point grading scale, Mayo Elbow Performance Index (MEPI) score, and the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) score.

Results: The patient’s subjective satisfaction scale revealed “very satisfactory” in three cases and “satisfactory” in four cases. The median MEPI and DASH score were preoperatively 45 and 88.8, which improved to 85 and 36.2 at final follow-up, respectively.

Conclusion: In patients with persistent pain despite aggressive conservative treatment in calcific tendinitis, direct surgical removal of calcific deposit is an effective way to resolve symptom and prevent recurrence.
