Epicondylitis humeri radialis

The pain associated with refractory epicondylitis humeri radialis can be eliminated not only by denervation, i.e. palliatively, but also by decompression of the radial nerve in certain cases. Wilhelm assume that the latter procedure eliminates an important cause of irritation, particularily by resection of the tendineous origin of the proximal caput of triceps muscle. In this respect Wilhelm consider the inferior cervical syndrome, present in all cases, to be the primary pathogenetic factor in accordance with REISCHAUER 1).
