Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to compare local corticosteroid hand and elbow injections to placebo or ketorolac to determine if there is an equal or better reduction of symptoms for common orthopaedic upper extremity disorders including: De Quervain's tenosynovitis, trigger fingers, and tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis). The investigators will enroll 780 subjects, divided equally into three arms for each disease process, and compare the efficacy of Ketorolac injections to Dexamethasone injections by measuring patient's functional status scores and pain scores at 0 weeks, 4 weeks, 8 weeks, 12 weeks, and 6 month followup periods, prospectively over time.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Arm Receiving Dexamethasone Injection

Dexamethasone will be administered as a peritendinous soft tissue injection of 1 mL of dexamethasone sodium phosphate (4mg/mL) and 0.5 mL (5mg) of 1% lidocaine.

Dexamethasone will be administered as a peritendinous soft tissue injection of 1 mL of dexamethasone sodium phosphate (4mg/mL) and 0.5 mL (5mg) of 1% lidocaine

Patients will be followed at the initial office visit, 4-weeks, 8-weeks, 12-weeks, and 6 months post injection to determine clinical response. A second injection can be given only once if the patient desires due to no clinical response at the 4 or 8-week follow-up.

Drug: Dexamethasone

Dexamethasone is a synthetic corticosteroid and possesses glucocorticoid activity, and will be used within its labeled indication for this study: intra-articular or soft tissue injection for: synovitis of osteoarthritis, epicondylitis, acute nonspecific tenosynovitis. It is the active comparator in this study.

In its approved indication there use limitations for immunocompromised individuals, pregnant females, persons with allergy to steroids, individuals with systemic fungal infections, and individuals with cerebral malaria. It is contra-indicated in systemic fungal infections, and hypersensitivity to any component of this product, including sulfites.


Experimental: Arm Receiving Ketorolac Injection

Ketorolac will be administered as a peritendinous soft tissue injection of 1 mL of ketorolac (30mg/mL) and 0.5 mL (5mg) of 1% lidocaine.

Patients will be followed at the initial office visit, 4-weeks, 8-weeks, 12-weeks, and 6 months post injection to determine clinical response. A second injection can be given only once if the patient desires due to no clinical response at the 4 or 8-week follow-up.

Drug: Ketorolac

The proposed use of ketorolac in this study is outside of the FDA-approved indication and is the investigational agent in this study

Ketorolac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). The approved indication for Ketorolac is for the short-term (≤5 days) management of moderately severe, acute pain that requires analgesia at the opioid level, usually in a postoperative setting. It is highly protein bound (99%) and is largely metabolized by the liver. In it's approved indication it is contraindicated for those with renal impairment, active peptic ulcer disease, pregnant or nursing females, individuals with NSAID hypersensitivity, or individuals at high risk for bleeding/clotting disorders.

Other Name: Toradol




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Trigger Finger Treatment Group: Change in objective triggering based on Quinnell Grading System [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks, 6 months ]
    Quinnell Grading system is assessed by the treating clinician at each visit upon physical exam of the patient's affected hand: 0-normal movement of finger; 1-uneven movement; 2-active correctible locking of digit; 3-passively correctible locking; 4-fixed deformity (15). This is recorded on the followup data sheets every time.

  2. Trigger Finger Treatment Group: Change in QuickDASH functional scores [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks and 6 months ]
    The QuickDASH is an 11-question standardized survey used to assess a patient's overall functional status and is widely used in the practice of orthopaedic surgery as an analog measurement of a patient's functional ability. Scores range from 0-100, with 100 being the most poor functionality and 0 being the best. This will be assessed at every visit by having the patient fill out the survey and our team calculating the score at the end of the visit.

  3. Trigger Finger Treatment Group: Change in EuroQuol-5D (EQ-5D) Functional Score [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks and 6 months ]
    The EQ-5D is a 5 question survey with 3 potential responses per question, based on measuring a patient's overall quality of life. The responses are compiled into a numerical score ranging from 1 to -0.11, with 1 being the best and -0.11 being the worst in terms of quality of life. This survey will be administered to patients at each visit, along with the other surveys.

  4. Trigger Finger Treatment Group: Change in VAS Pain Scores [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks and 6 months ]
    VAS pain score is a 0-10 numerical score assessing patient's subjective level of reported pain. This will be recorded from the patient's written response at every visit.

  5. DeQuervain's Treatment Group: Change in Pain at 1st Dorsal Compartment [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks and 6 months ]
    The clinician will examine the patient and determine objectively if there is pain or no pain upon palpation of the first dorsal extensor compartment. Pain is recorded as a 1, and no pain is recorded as a 0, for this categorical variable measured at each visit.

  6. DeQuervain's Treatment Group: Change in Finkelstein Test [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks and 6 months ]
    The clinician will perform the finkelstein exam maneuver by ulnarly deviating the affected wrist, flexing the patient's thumb, and palpating the first dorsal compartment to see if pain is elicited. Pain is a positive response, marked as 1. No pain is a negative response, marked as zero. This is assessed at every visit, including baseline, like all other assessments mentioned here.

  7. De Quervain's Treatment Group: Change in QuickDASH scores [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12, week and 6 months ]
    The QuickDASH is an 11-question standardized survey used to assess a patient's overall functional status and is widely used in the practice of orthopaedic surgery as an analog measurement of a patient's functional ability. Scores range from 0-100, with 100 being the most poor functionality and 0 being the best. This will be assessed at every visit by having the patient fill out the survey and our team calculating the score at the end of the visit.

  8. DeQuervain's Treatment Group: Change in EQ-5D scores [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12, weeks and 6 months ]
    The EQ-5D is a 5 question survey with 3 potential responses per question, based on measuring a patient's overall quality of life. The responses are compiled into a numerical score ranging from 1 to -0.11, with 1 being the best and -0.11 being the worst in terms of quality of life. This survey will be administered to patients at each visit, along with the other surveys.

  9. De Quervain's Treatment Group: Change in VAS Pain score [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks and 6 months ]
    VAS pain score is a 0-10 numerical score assessing patient's subjective level of reported pain. This will be recorded from the patient's written response at every visit.

  10. Lateral Epicondylitis Treatment Group: Change in pain over lateral epicondyle [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks and 6 months ]
    Clinician will examine the patient and palpate over the lateral epicondyle. Presence of pain is a positive test, recorded as 1. Absence of pain is a negative test, recorded as 0. This is done at every visit.

  11. Lateral Epicondylitis Treatment Group: Change in pain with resisted wrist extension [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks and 6 months ]
    The clinician examines the patient and asks patient to extend wrist against resistance by the clinician. Production of pain is a positive test, recorded as 1. Absence of pain is a negative test, recorded as 0. This is done at ever visit.

  12. Lateral Epicondylitis Treatment Group: Change in QuickDASH functional scores [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12, weeks and 6 months ]

This survey will be administered to patients at each visit, along with the other surveys.

  14. Lateral Epicondylitis Treatment Group: Change in VAS Pain Scores [ Time Frame: 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks and 6 months ]
    VAS pain score is a 0-10 numerical score assessing patient's subjective level of reported pain. This will be recorded from the patient's written response at every visit.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Blood Glucose Levels 24 and 48 hours after Treatment Injection [ Time Frame: 24 and 48 hours after all visits at 0, 4, 8, 12 weeks and 6 months ]
    Any diabetic patients who monitor their blood sugar levels will be asked to keep a log of their blood sugar levels measured at least once in the 24 hours after a visit, and at least once in the 48 hours after the visit, for each protocol visit. This is done for ALL groups, and both treatment arms.
