Elbow tendinosis/tennis elbow

Clin Sports Med. 1992 Oct;11(4):851-70.


The histology of pathologic tennis elbow tissue reveals noninflammatory tissue, thus the term angio-fibroblastic tendinosis. The goal of nonsurgical treatment is a revascularization and collagen repair of this pathologic tissue by rehabilitative exercise. In the event of rehabilitation failure, surgical correction by removal of this pathologic tissue is the surgical technique of choice.
