Staged Achilles Allograft Reconstruction of Chronic Bilateral Simultaneous Tears of the Retracted Distal Biceps Tendon Using a Novel Fixation Technique.

Cureus 2022 May 20;14(5):e25172. Epub 2022 May 20.

Orthopaedic Surgery, Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, State College, USA.

Bilateral simultaneous rupture of distal biceps tendons is an extremely rare clinical entity that can result in significant morbidity for an active person if not addressed appropriately. Treatment becomes more complicated in a delayed presentation as the tendon retracts and scars to the adjacent tissues, thus precluding a primary tendon-to-bone repair. The present study is a case report of an active male with a two-month-old simultaneous rupture of both distal biceps tendons managed by Achilles allograft reconstruction and double cortical-button fixation technique that provided a satisfactory functional outcome.

Pectoralis Major Tendon Tears During Airborne Operations: Are These Injuries Isolated?

Mil Med 2022 Jun 7. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center, Fort Gordon, GA 30905, USA.

Introduction: Pectoralis major tendon tears are an injury pattern often treated in military populations. Although the majority of pectoralis major tendon tears occur during eccentric loading as in bench press weightlifting, military service members may also experience this injury from a blunt injury and traction force produced by static line entanglement during airborne operations. Although these injuries rarely occur in isolation, associated injury patterns have not been investigated previously. Read More

Editorial Commentary: Shoulder Biceps Tenodesis Versus Tenotomy: Both Show Good Results and Have Different Indications.

Arthroscopy 2022 Jun;38(6):1843-1845

Shoulder long head biceps pathology is one of the most common causes of shoulder pain. The fact that there are many surgical techniques available has led to discussion of which should be the best treatment; although, in general terms, the two main options are tenotomy or tenodesis. Tenotomy is a simple technique, with a low rate of complications and a very good cost-benefit ratio, faster recovery, and less use of narcotic pain medications. Read More

Editorial Commentary: Indications for Shoulder SLAP Lesion Repair Versus Biceps Tenodesis Depend on Patient Age, Tear Type and Location, and Quality of Tissue.

Arthroscopy 2022 Jun;38(6):1810-1811

Whether to repair a shoulder SLAP lesion or perform a biceps tenodesis depends on a multitude of factors: patient age, activity or work level, type of SLAP tear, location of SLAP tear, and quality of labral tissue. Determining which procedure to perform does not have such a simple, one-size-fits-all solution. For patients younger than 40 years, repair of type 2 SLAP tears that do not directly affect the biceps anchor (i. Read More

Tendon transfers for massive rotator cuff tears.

Antonio Cartucho

EFORT Open Rev 2022 May 31;7(6):404-413. Epub 2022 May 31.

Shoulder and Elbow Unit, Hospital Cuf Descobertas, Lisbon, Portugal.

Massive rotator cuff tears (MRCTs) present a particular challenge due to high rates of retear that can range from 18 to 94%, failure of healing after repair, and potential for irreparability. Management of MRCTs must take into consideration the patient's characteristics, clinical examamination and expectation, number and quality of muscle tendons units involved. Conservative treatment, arthroscopic long head of the biceps tenotomy, cuff debridement, partial repair, and superior capsule reconstruction are viable solutions to treat selected patients.

Hannover Medical School, Clinic for Orthopaedic Surgery, Stadtfelddamm 34, 30625 Hannover,

The musculoskeletal system consists of different components comprising a wide range of tissue types, with tendons being one part. Tendon degeneration or rupture have a high prevalence in all age groups, often with poor outcomes of surgical treatment such as chronic pain and high re-tear rates. Therefore, much effort has been directed to further develop diagnostic and therapeutic methods as well as reconstruction techniques, including using adequate placeholders or implants. Read More

Identifying key factors associated with subscapularis tendon tears and developing a risk prediction model to assist diagnosis.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Apr 27;23(1):393. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Orthopaedics Department, Beijing Hospital, National Center of Gerontology, Institute of Geriatric Medicine, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, NO.1 DaHua Road, Dong Dan, Beijing, 100730, PR China.

Background: There are still some challenges in diagnosing subscapularis (SSC) tendon tears as accurately as posterosuperior rotator cuff tears on MRI. The omission of SSC tendon tear can lead to muscle atrophy, fatty infiltration, and increased tearing accompanied by aggravated shoulder pain and loss of function.

Power-Optimizing Repair for Distal Biceps Tendon Rupture: Stronger and Safer.

J Hand Surg Glob Online 2021 Sep 8;3(5):266-271. Epub 2021 Jul 8.

Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center, Indianapolis, IN.

Purpose: Many approaches have been described to accomplish tendon reattachment to the radial tuberosity in a distal biceps tendon rupture, with significant success, but each is associated with potential postoperative complications, including posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) injury. To date, there has been no consensus on the best approach to the repair. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the supination strength and the distance of drill exit points from the PIN in a power-optimizing distal biceps repair method and compare the findings with those of a traditional anterior approach endobutton repair method.
