Int Orthop. 1995;19(2):69-71. doi: 10.1007/BF00179962.

Abstract

Ninety-five cases of medial epicondylitis are reported in 83 patients; 90% were related to work and only 10% to sport or leisure activities. Most recovered with conservative treatment. Operation was needed in 12%, which compared with under 4% of patients with lateral epicondylitis over the same period. The results of open release of the common flexor origin were good, with only one exception.
