Abstract

Purpose Controversy exists with regards to the etiology and treatment of lateral epicondylitis and the role of the lateral capsule in this pathology. The aim of this study was to compare arthroscopic lateral capsule resection with or without extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) tendon debridement for treatment of lateral epicondylitis.
