Iliotibial band syndrome: can the lateral femoral epicondyle play a role? An anatomic study of individual variation in epicondyle prominence

Background. A prominent lateral epicondyle is a proposed contributor to iliotibial band friction syndrome, an overuse injury characterized by local soft tissue inflammation at the distal lateral knee. However, little is known about the variability in lateral epicondyle prominence. We sought to describe normal variation in prominence and determine a reliable measurement method on 3-dimensional … Continued
