Steroid Peritendinous Injection

A technique of a performance of the peritendinous injection is the same as an aspiration. We use about 12 mg of Depo Medrol for one peritendinous injection. Maximal count of the peritendinous injections into the tendon is 2 3. At acute states mostly one is enough. But a problem are chronic tenovaginitides with an exudate of a type a ganglion. In the case of a recidivity of the problems after mentioned count of  peritendinous injections, our attempts to ask orthopaedic outpatient department for an operative solution, i.e. tenosynovectomy, are mostly in vain, so we continue in other steroid injections under the ultrasound examination.
