Functional recovery in the surgical treatment of tennis elbow: side-to-side versus tendon-to-bone attachment using a knotless suture anchor, a randomized controlled trial
Lateral epicondylitis of the elbow sometimes does not respond to conservative treatment and requires surgical intervention. Many different surgical techniques have been described. The aim of this randomized study was to compare functional outcomes of open side-to-side suturing of the tendon with tendon-to-bone fixation with a knotless suture anchor.
A mallet finger, sometimes called “baseball finger” because it can be common in baseball players, is a deformity of the finger typically caused by injury. You may have a mallet finger if you’ve recently jammed, cut, or broken your fingertip. Most likely, a hard object like a ball struck the tip of your finger or your finger was bent forcefully when lifting a heavy object or performing a daily task.
Some conditions cause the finger or toe joint tissue to thicken, which makes movement difficult. This, in turn, may affect how the joint bends, leading to a locking sensation. The potential causes of this include injury and arthritis.

Arthritis in the arm can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness in the elbow, shoulder, or wrists. It may affect one or more joints, depending on the type of arthritis a person has.
