PURPOSE: Arthroscopic techniques tend to become the gold standard in rotator cuff repair. However, little data are reported in the literature regarding the improvement of postoperative outcomes and re-tear rate relative to conventional open surgery. The aim of this study was to compare clinical outcomes and cuff integrity after arthroscopic versus open cuff repair. METHODS: We prospectively assessed clinical outcomes and cuff integrity after an arthroscopic or open rotator cuff repair with a minimum follow-up of 12 months...

A rotator cuff tear is a common injury in athletes and workers who repeatedly perform overhead movements, and it is not uncommon for this demographic to return to activity shortly after treatment. A biceps tenotomy is often performed in the presence of a rotator cuff tear to help reduce pain and improve joint function. However, the effect of this procedure on the surrounding tissues in the glenohumeral joint is unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a biceps tenotomy in the presence of a supraspinatus rotator cuff tear followed by overuse activity on ambulatory function and mechanical and histologic properties of the remaining rotator cuff tendons and glenoid cartilage...

Isolated biceps femoris rupture is a rare injury associated with limitation in the function of the knee. We present a 65-year-old man who sustained an isolated complete rupture of the tendon of the biceps femoris. The diagnostic was reached after clinical examination and magnetic resonance imaging of the affected knee. This case was treated with a surgical tendon reconstruction. The outcome was good and the patient was able to walk normally again without limitation, even if he did not comply with our recommendation...

The long head of the biceps (LHB) tendon is a potential generator of pain within the shoulder. Tenodesis of the LHB is a treatment option for several pathologic shoulder conditions. We conducted a study to determine trends in LHB tenodesis at a subspecialty-focused shoulder orthopedic practice. We hypothesized that the rate of LHB tenodesis would increase significantly over time and that there would be no significant change in the age of patients who underwent LHB tenodesis. Records of 4 fellowship-trained sports or shoulder/elbow orthopedic surgeons were used to identify total number of common arthroscopic shoulder surgeries performed between 2004 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: Several cases of snapping biceps femoris tendons have been reported with anomalous insertions of the distal tendon insertion or in the context of trauma. There are only three published cases due to abnormal fibular head morphology. METHODS/RESULTS: We present a case of unilateral snapping of the biceps femoris tendon in a 19 year old. We decided to proceed with surgery after the patient failed a trial of non-operative treatment and had significant functional limitations...

Pathology to the proximal biceps tendon has the potential to be a major source of pain in the shoulder, secondary to complex superior labrum from anterior to posterior (SLAP) lesions, partial biceps tears, and subluxations. In order to restore function and improve the patient's quality of life, repair of these injuries is crucial. Tenodesis has long been the ideal treatment of persistent pain caused by pathology of the proximal biceps tendon. A biceps tenodesis helps prevent biceps pain and cramping during movement and avoids the cosmetic deformity associated with a biceps tenotomy...

BACKGROUND: The repair of anterior L-shaped tears is usually difficult because of the lack of anterior rotator cuff tendon to cover the footprint. The biceps tendon is usually exposed from the retracted anterolateral corner of the torn tendon and can be easily used to augment rotator cuff repair. Hypothesis/Purpose: This study compared the clinical outcomes of the biceps augmentation technique with those of partial tendon repair for the arthroscopic treatment of large anterior L-shaped rotator cuff tears to evaluate the role of additional biceps augmentation in tendon healing...

INTRODUCTION: Massive rotator cuff tears (RCTs) in the context of shoulder dislocations are relatively uncommon in the young adult (<40 years) and if reported are more commonly described in association with acute traumatic anterior glenohumeral dislocations. They have rarely been described with posterior dislocations, regardless of patient age. This is the 1(st) case reported in the context of posterior dislocations, where a triad of biceps tendon rupture, posterior dislocation, and RCTs was observed during surgery...

The punctum fixum-punctum mobile model has been introduced in previous publications. It describes general principles of intersegmental neuromuscular succession patterns to most efficiently generate specific movement intentions. The general hypothesis of this study is that these principles-if they really do indicate a fundamental basis for efficient movement generation-should also be found in intramuscular coordination and should be indicated by "longitudinal sequencing" between fibers according to the principles of the punctum fixum-punctum mobile model...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Feedback plays a crucial role for using Brain Computer Interface (BCI) systems. This study proposes the use of vibration-evoked kinaesthetic illusions as part of a novel multisensory feedback for a Motor Imagery (MI) based BCI and investigates its contributions in terms of BCI performance and electroencephalographic (EEG) correlates. METHODS: Sixteen subjects performed two different right arm MI-BCI sessions: with the visual feedback only and with both visual and vibration-evoked kinaesthetic feedback, conveyed by the stimulation of the biceps brachi tendon...

BACKGROUND: Pathologies of the long head of biceps tendon (LHB) can cause anterior shoulder pain. Surgical treatment includes tenotomy and tenodesis (TD), however TD causes fewer cosmetic deformities and less cramping of the biceps muscle. To date, numerous techniques for TD have been described but the "gold standard" has not yet been established. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the functional and cosmetic outcome following subpectoral biceps TD with an interference screw and a cortical-button (STLHB-IC) after 1 year...

Proximal humerus fracture after subpectoral tenodesis (SPBT) of the long head of the biceps tendon is a rare but serious complication. Examination of the biceps tendon diameter after preparation for SPBT in vivo suggests that the use of a smaller tenodesis screw is technically possible. However, questions remain about the biomechanical strength of the tenodesis construct with a smaller interference screw and about whether or not the size of a drill hole is the predominant factor in determining the risk of fracture...
