Triceps Tendon Injuries: An Uncommon Clinical Entity
Image 1. Olecranon bursitis with small enthesophyte
Image 2. Avulsion fracture of the olecranon. Also noted is elbow joint O and history of ORIF of proximal radius.
In summary, triceps tendon injuries are not well studied or described in the literature. Tendinopathies can usually be managed conservatively. Partial tears should be seen by an orthopedic surgeon although surgical indications are not well defined. Complete tears are surgical and require intervention.
