2004 MRI characteristics of olecranon bursitis

Olecranon bursitis in chronic haemodialysis patients

Location: http://ndt.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/16/9/1956

Osteoarticular diseases are frequent complications observed in chronic haemodialysis patients. Aetiologies of articular manifestations are numerous, including secondary hyperparathyroidism, crystal arthropathy such as gout and hydroxyapatite deposition, amyloidosis, aluminum overload and infectious processes. We report here swelling of olecranon bursa observed over a 9-month period (during years 1999 and 2000)...

Septic and non-septic olecranon bursitis in the accident and emergency department

Location: http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?tool=pubmed&pubmedid=8894865

Olecranon bursitis is relatively common. One third of episodes are septic. Most of the remainder are non-septic, with occasional rheumatological causes. Trauma can cause both septic and non-septic olecranon bursitis. Clinical features are helpful in separating septic from non-septic olecranon bursitis, but there may be local erythema in both. Aspiration...
