FELINE Medial Humeral Epicondylitis

What is medial humeral epicondylitis?

Medial humeral epicondylitis (MHE) stems from the tearing and calcification of flexor tendons, occurring at their attachment point inside the elbow joint. Cats afflicted with MHE may exhibit symptoms with or without accompanying  arthritis and other related changes. Furthermore, MHE has been linked to elbow joint subluxation or dislocation, potentially leading to arthritis over time. As bone spurs form in this area, they may impinge on the ulnar nerve, causing discomfort and weakness. Although the precise cause of MHE remains elusive, it could be attributed to trauma or repetitive overuse.
