Injection treatment to the glenohumeral joint is often needed to treat shoulder problems such as adhesive capsulitis. This can be done through blind palpation technique, fluoroscopic or musculoskeletal ultrasound guidance. In recent years, ultrasound has been proven to increase the accuracy of needle placement into the glenohumeral joint.
Glenohumeral joint injection can be done through the anterior rotator interval approach or the posterior approach techniques. The posterior injection technique offers an easier and a more effective approach to the glenohumeral joint with less extravasation rate as compared with the anterior approach. The video demonstrates how the posterior injection approach is done through ultrasound guidance.

Extensor Tendinopathy (Tennis Elbow) is a common term used to describe pathology of the forearm extensor tendons that converge to anchor the muscles to the lateral elbow. During traditional ultrasonography using the longitudinal scanning method, it is difficult to determine which component of the common extensor tendon (CET) is affected. This video presents the addition of a transverse scan to better visualize the tendons that join and form the CET. Two cases seen in our ultrasound clinic were demonstrated. The findings from the transverse scan helped to provide modifications of specific wrist and hand activities to facilitate recovery.

Ulnar nerve subluxation or snapping triceps syndrome is the condition of anterior sliding of the ulnar nerve or part of the triceps muscle over the medial epicondyle during elbow flexion. This video presents the real-time dynamic visualization of the entire process of ulnar nerve subluxation and snapping triceps during joint movement of the elbow using ultrasonography.

This video showed the real-time ankle movements and the ultrasound images. Dynamic scanning (transverse view) at the level of the lateral malleolus showed anterior subluxation of the peroneal longus tendon over the malleolus during dorsiflexion and eversion. The peroneus longus tendon returned to the normal anatomic position at rest.

The authors demonstrated ultrasound-guided technique in treating carpal tunnel syndrome to avoid damaging the median nerve and adjacent soft tissue. Since the median nerve goes deeper at distal hamate level, distal approach may provide larger space for initial needle insertion. Under long-axial view, the whole stretch of median nerve could be visualized when the needle progressed proximally in the access of in-plane.

Ulnar nerve compression commonly occurs during elbow flexion due to its location in the aponeurotic arch of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, also referred to as the humeroulnar arcade. Ultrasonography is an easily accessible tool for dynamic examination of the ulnar nerve in different elbow positions. This video gallery presents a rare case of ulnar nerve compression during elbow extension revealed in dynamic ultrasonography.

This video showed dynamic scanning (transverse view) of two painful neuromas at the level of stump tip of a below-elbow amputee. After ultrasound-guided perineural steroid injections, the sizes of both neuromas decreased during follow up one month later. The patient also reported a marked reduction in pain and numbness of the stump tip and well tolerated an electronic arm prosthesis.
