Purpose: The lateral epicondylitis is very common around elbow joint. We investigated the effectiveness of arthroscopic treatment. Materials and Methods: From Oct. 2002 to Feb. 2006, a total of 14 patients who were diagnosed with lateral epicondylitis and treated with arthroscopy were used in this study. The average symptom durations before receiving treatment was 27.3 months (9 to 47 months) and the average follow-up periods was 13.6 months (8 to 22 months). Results: The mean preoperative VAS scores was 8.3 (7 to 10 points) and the mean postoperative scores was 1.6 (0 to 4 points). The lesions of extensor carpi radialis brevis were classified using Baker's classification system. Type 1 lesion was found in 7 cases, type 2 in 4 cases, type 3 in 1 case Patients were able to return to their normal life style by 12.3 days (6 to 27 day). Conclusion: The Clinical outcomes of patients who received arthroscopic treatment were found to be good. Patients experienced lesser pain, and shorter recovery time. Therefore, when conservative treatment is ineffective in treating the lateral epicondylitis, arthroscopic treatment is considered af another option available for patients.
