Distal triceps injuries are uncommon, and are often managed non-operatively. Ultrasonic percutaneous tenotomy is a recently developed technique using a specialized device designed to microresect and debride tendinopathic tissue. The device is directed into the pathology tissue using ultrasound guidance. We describe the surgical technique for and present a series of patients with
refractory partial triceps tendon tears treated with ultrasonic percutaneous tenontomy.
