Triceps tendinopathy

Last revised by Yuranga Weerakkody on 19 Jun 2022

Triceps tendinopathy is the least common tendon injury of the elbow, and most commonly presents as rupture. 

There is a male predominance 1.

Triceps tendinopathy can range from tendinosis through to complete triceps tendon rupture 1,2.

Rupture most commonly occurs at the osteotendinous junction. Rupture also appears to be more common than partial tears/rupture (which are more common medially) and tendinosis 2.
