INTRODUCTION: Rotator cuff (RC) tears are common and a frequent cause of dysfunction in the shoulder, especially with progression of age. Biceps pathology occurs concomitantly and its relationship with RC tears has been well described. However, the study of biceps intervention affecting outcomes of RC repair is limited. We aim to study the effect of biceps tenotomy in RC repair after matching for cuff tear size. METHODS: We collected data of 24 consecutive patients undergoing RC repair and biceps tenotomy and matched them with patients undergoing RC repair only ( n = 24)...

BACKGROUND: Biceps tenodesis reduces the incidence of Popeye deformity occurring with tenotomy, but pain may occur with tenodesis superior to or within the bicipital groove. Arthroscopic suprapectoral tenodesis is an attractive alternative. The purpose of this study was to establish landmarks for arthroscopic suprapectoral tenodesis and determine the appropriate fixation point to optimize muscle tension. METHODS: Twelve fresh cadaveric shoulders were dissected. Urethane polymer was injected into the axillary artery...

Arthroscopic repair of the long head of the biceps (LHB) is performed to treat various biceps pathologies yet the choice between tenotomy or tenodesis remains controversial. Although tenotomy is simpler and quicker, tenodesis results in fewer complications, and there are several techniques available using various fixation devices and sites. This Technical Note describes an all-arthroscopic, suprapectoral tenodesis technique using a bioresorbable interference screw, without motorized devices to create the humeral tunnel in the bicipital groove...

Disorders of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT) are a common source of shoulder pain and disability. This tendon can be well visualized using ultrasonography; however, little is known if such examination allows clinicians to predict pathological changes of the tendon structure. In the study described below, we compare preoperative sonographic findings with the data from shoulder arthroscopy and microscopic examination of the excised tendon fragments in 19 consecutive patients with LHB tendinopathy and clinical suspicion of its instability...

The long head of the biceps (LHB) tendon is a potential source of shoulder pain encountered by orthopaedic surgeons. A multitude of approaches to addressing LHB tendinopathy have been described. These include various surgical techniques such as tenodesis versus tenotomy, an arthroscopic versus an open approach, and differing methods of tenodesis fixation. Our preferred approach to addressing LHB tendinopathy is through a mini-open approach using a double-loaded 4.5-mm suture anchor. This Technical Note with accompanying video describes our technique for performing this procedure, as well as supporting clinical evidence and technical pearls...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of a tenotomy of the long biceps tendon is to remedy a painful pathology in the proximal region of the tendon. Tenodesis of the tendon can restore the motor and cosmetic function of the biceps brachii muscle. INDICATIONS: Partial rupture or tendopathy of the long biceps tendon, injuries of the anchor of the long biceps tendon (SLAP lesions; SLAP: superior labrum anterior posterior), lesions of the pulley system. CONTRAINDICATIONS: Infections or tumors, loss of the long head biceps tendon from the intertubercular groove...

Tears of the subscapularis tendon have been under-recognised until recently. Therefore, a high index of suspicion is essential for diagnosis.A directed physical examination, including the lift-off, belly-press and increased passive external rotation can help identify tears of the subscapularis.All planes on MR imaging should be carefully evaluated to identify tears of the subscapularis, retraction, atrophy and biceps pathology.Due to the tendency of the tendon to retract medially, acute and traumatic full-thickness tears should be repaired...

An irreparable cuff tear is defined as the inability to achieve direct repair of native tendon to the great tuberosity despite intra- and extra-articular release of the remaining tissue. Three distinct anatomic patterns are identified: posterosuperior cuff tears which involve the supraspinatus, infraspinatus and teres minor; anterosuperior tears which involve the supraspinatus and subscapularis; and global tears which comprise both. Subacromial debridement and tenotomy or tenodesis of the long head of the biceps are proposed for older patients with a functional but very painful shoulder...

Arthroscopic SLAP tear repair has become an increasingly used treatment for patients presenting with symptomatic SLAP tears after failed nonoperative management. Debridement, SLAP repair, and open or arthroscopic biceps tenodesis or tenotomy have been used for the treatment of SLAP tears. Various techniques for repair have been described, and furthermore, there is a high incidence of concomitant pathology of the shoulder. Repair remains an excellent option in isolated SLAP tears amenable to repair, with excellent outcomes in well-indicated patients...

Management of proximal and distal biceps tendon pathology is evolving. The long head of the biceps tendon, if inflamed, may be a pain-producing structure. In appropriately indicated patients, a symptomatic long head of the biceps tendon can be surgically managed via tenotomy, tenodesis, and/or superior labrum anterior to posterior repair. In some patients, primary superior labrum anterior to posterior pathology can be managed via biceps tenodesis. Determining which procedure is most appropriate and which technique and implant are preferred for a given patient with biceps tendon pathology is controversial...

The long head of the biceps and the biceps pulley sling are prone to acute or degenerative injury. As they both were identified as major pain generators, adequate diagnosis and treatment is vital for successful treatment of shoulder pain. Although the basic principles to address either pathology have not changed over the last decades, new trends have evolved to simplify surgical options. SLAP (superior labral tear from anterior to posterior) repair is seen more restrictive and is mostly performed in young individuals, whereas tenotomy or tenodesis are more often used in patients over 30...

INTRODUCTION: "Fosbury flop" tear is an avulsion of the posterosuperior rotator cuff from the bone with reversal healing on its medial bursal-side. This case report describes a unique variant of Fosbury flop tear with a lesion of the musculotendinous junction that healed, for its tendon part, on the anterior humerus and coracoid process. CASE PRESENTATION: A 62-year-old man developed a posttraumatic painful shoulder with active loss of range of motion. Magnetic resonance arthrography demonstrated a lesion of the musculotendinous junction of the supraspinatus with healing of the tendon on the above-mentioned structures (reverse Fosbury flop)...

Purpose  Shoulder pain and disability pose a diagnostic challenge owing to the numerous etiologies and the potential for multiple disorders to exist simultaneously. The evidence to support the use of clinical tests for superior labral anterior to posterior complex (SLAP) is weak or absent. The purpose of this study is to determine the diagnostic validity of physical examination maneuvers for SLAP lesions by performing a methodologically rigorous, clinically applicable study. Methods  We recruited consecutive new shoulder patients reporting pain and/or disability...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this meta-analysis was to assess whether there were differences in the outcomes between tenotomy and tenodesis in treating LHBT lesions combined with rotator cuff repairs. METHODS: Using Medline, Embase, and Cochrane, we searched for articles comparing tenotomy and tenodesis combined with rotator cuff repair which were published before April 2016 with the terms "biceps", "tenotomy", "tenodesis", and "rotator cuff". The controlled clinical studies that met the inclusion and exclusion criteria were assessed for quality of methodology by utilizing the Coleman score...

Tenodesis of the long head of the biceps (LHB) tendon has long been recognized as a valid alternative to address pathologic conditions of this tendon. However, the location and type of fixation is still a matter of discussion, because common complications associated with this procedure include failure of the repair, persistent pain, reaction to the fixation device, cosmetic deformity, and fracture. The authors describe a method of subpectoral LHB tenodesis that aims to preserve bone stock and allows a strong, easy, and reproducible type of fixation with a minimal approach...

Biceps tenodesis maintains the cosmetic appearance and length-tension relationship of the biceps with an associated predictable clinical outcome compared with tenotomy. Arthroscopic suprapectoral techniques are being developed to avoid the disadvantages of the open subpectoral approach. This study biomechanically compared 3 arthroscopic suprapectoral biceps tenodesis techniques performed with a suture anchor with lasso loop technique, an interference screw, and a compressive rivet. For a total of 15 randomized paired tests, 15 pairs of human cadaveric shoulders were used to test 1 technique vs another 5 times with 3 customized setups...
