ABSTRACT
The article presents information about Olecranon bursitis. Olecranon bursitis is the inflammation of the bursa (blue) overlying the olecranon process at the proximal aspect of the ulna, caused by acute trauma or repetitive minor trauma. No local anaesthetic is normally required for aspiration. Advance the needle while maintaining negative pressure in the syringe. Once fluid flows, do not advance the needle further. If the fluid is cloudy, send for analysis.
