Abstract: We retrospectively reviewed 37 cases of resection of the olecranon bursa and noted wound healing problems in 10 (27%) and recurrence in 8 (22%). A lateral arm flap was necessary in one patient. Conservative treatment remains the treatment of choice for olecranon bursitis. Differentiation between septic and non-septic cases is challenging. The risk of wound healing problems and recurrence should be taken into account when planning surgical resection.
