Snapping triceps syndrome is a rarely diagnosed condition that can present with symptoms of ulnar neuritis or as an isolated problem itself. First described in 1970, this syndrome is minimally present in the literature with a few mechanistic studies, anatomical studies, radiological reports, and occasional case reports or series. In this article, we briefly review the literature, discuss potential causes and typical presentations of snapping triceps syndrome, and describe our operative technique. We also provide a representative case with intraoperative videos that illustrate the pathology and surgical treatment.
