Ultrasound is considered a reliable, widely available, non-invasive and inexpensive imaging technique for assessing soft tissue involvement in Lateral epicondylalgia. Despite the number of diagnostic studies for Lateral Epicondylalgia, there is no consensus in the current literature on the best abnormal ultrasound findings that confirm lateral epicondylalgia. Eligible studies identified ...

Secondary and tertiary sulfonamides (R-SO(2)NR(1)R(2)) are defined by the single or double N-alkyl or N-aryl/heteroaryl substitution of the primary sulfonamide respectively. They can be obtained easily by the classical S(N)2 or nucleophile acyl substitution displacements using the appropriate synthones. Many classes of compounds used in therapy present the substituted sulfonamide ...
