It's Not About The Biceps.

Arch Bone Jt Surg 2018 Nov;6(6):570-576

Research performed at Amphia Hospital, Breda, The Netherlands.

In the biomedical paradigm all symptoms and limitations are ascribed to discrete pathophysiology. However, a biopsychosocial health model that accounts for the important influence of mind-set and circumstances on illness may be preferable in the vast majority of cases. Some of the shortcomings of the biomedical model include an overreliance on tests and treatments. Read More

Reconstruction of the distal biceps tendon using semitendinosus grafting: Description of the technique.

Rev Bras Ortop 2018 Sep-Oct;53(5):651-655. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

Departamento de Ortopedia e Traumatologia, Escola Paulista de Medicina, Universidade Federal de São Paulo, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Distal ruptures of the biceps are rare when compared to proximal ruptures, with a different epidemiology and mechanism of trauma. There is no exact pathophysiology, though the hypovascular distal insertion and the mechanical impact during movement should be considered important factors. The surgical treatment of chronic cases presents worse prognosis due to muscle shortening with tendon retraction, making anatomical repair of the injury difficult, requiring the use of grafts for its reconstruction.

Arthroscopic Repair of an Isolated Subscapularis Tendon Rupture in an Adolescent Patient.

Arthrosc Tech 2018 May 23;7(5):e523-e527. Epub 2018 Apr 23.

Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.

Arthroscopic repair of an isolated subscapularis tendon rupture has been previously described in the adult population; however, the technique has yet to be described in a pediatric patient. In this Technical Note, we describe an arthroscopic repair of an isolated subscapularis tendon rupture with concomitant mini-open suprapectoral biceps tenodesis in an adolescent patient. Standard anterior and posterior portals are established with an accessory portal in the anterosuperior angle of the acromion. Read More

Normative values of isometric elbow strength in healthy adults: a systematic review.

Shoulder Elbow 2018 Jul 23;10(3):207-215. Epub 2018 Jan 23.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Amphia Hospital, The Netherlands.

Background: Post-traumatic deformities such as biceps tendon rupture or (peri-)articular fractures of the elbow are often related to a decrease in muscle strength. Postoperative evaluation of these deformities requires normative values of elbow strength. The purpose of this systematic review was to determine these normative values of isometric elbow strength in healthy adults resulting from studies evaluating this strength (i. Read More

Tenodesis renders better results than tenotomy in repairs of isolated supraspinatus tears with pathologic biceps.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2018 Nov 18;27(11):1939-1945. Epub 2018 May 18.

Saint-Grégoire Private Hospital Center, Saint-Grégoire, France.

Background: Many authors recommend systematic biceps tenotomy or tenodesis when repairing rotator cuff tears, regardless of whether the biceps is normal or pathologic. The purpose of this study was to determine whether 10-year outcomes of repairs of isolated supraspinatus tears are influenced by adjuvant biceps tenodesis or tenotomy.

Methods: Patients who underwent repair of isolated supraspinatus tears were recalled for evaluation at a minimum follow-up of 10 years. Read More

Variation in origin of the long head of the biceps brachii tendon in a cadaver: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 May;97(20):e10708

Department of Anatomy, Division of Basic Medical Science, Tokai University School of Medicine, 143 Shimokasuya, Isehara-si, Kanagawa, Japan.

Introduction: In general, the long head of the biceps brachii (LHB) tendon arises from the supraglenoid tubercle in the shoulder joint, and it has an important stabilizing mechanism for the humeral head in the shoulder joint. This case demonstrates that even if the LHB tendon can be palpated outside of the shoulder joint, it may disappear in the intertubercular sulcus (IS) and in the glenohumeral (GH) joint because of abnormal articulation.

Patient Concerns: This case involved the cadaver of an 82-year-old Japanese man (number 1936, cause of death: hepatocellular tumor), who was selected from the bodies used for gross anatomy practice at the Tokai University School of Medicine in 2017. Read More

Editorial Commentary: "Popeye" Deformity After Spontaneous Proximal Biceps Tendon Rupture: Image, Treat, or Ignore?

Arthroscopy 2018 Apr;34(4):1171-1172

Los Angeles, California.

We have long been accustomed to treat proximal biceps tendon ruptures with reassurance unless the patient cannot accept the resulting "Popeye" deformity. A recent study hypothesizes that these patients deserve a magnetic resonance imaging scan to identify associated rotator cuff pathology, specifically supraspinatus and subscapularis tendon tears. The authors of this study ask an important question and provide a compelling, if incomplete, answer. Read More

Fibrocartilaginous metaplasia identified in the long head of the biceps brachii.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2018 Jul 19;27(7):1221-1225. Epub 2018 Mar 19.

Clinical Orthopaedics, Department of Clinical and Molecular Science, School of Medicine, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy. Electronic address:

Background: In the glenohumeral joint, the long head of biceps brachii (LHBB) is exposed to tension and compression loading. The short head of biceps brachii (SHBB) works only in tension. It is known that tendon under compression might develop fibrocartilaginous metaplasia that improves the resistance to compression but reduces the resistance to tension. Read More

Superior capsular reconstruction of the shoulder: the ABC (Arthroscopic Biceps Chillemi) technique.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2018 Aug 21;28(6):1215-1223. Epub 2018 Mar 21.

Clinical Orthopaedics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy.

Superior capsular reconstruction (SCR) demonstrated its efficacy as a treatment option available in patients affected with irreparable posterosuperior rotator cuff tears without any signs of arthritis. Originally, the fascia lata autograft was fixed medially to the glenoid (with two or more anchors) and laterally to the greater tuberosity (with a compression double-row technique using four anchors or three transosseous tunnels). Additionally, side-to-side sutures were used to anteriorly and posteriorly connect the graft to the native residual rotator cuff tissue. Read More

Hidden degloving rotator cuff tears secondary to glenohumeral dislocation.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2018 Aug 16;27(8):1456-1461. Epub 2018 Mar 16.

Centre Orthopédique Santy, Hôpital Privé Jean Marmoz, Lyon, France.

Background: A rare form of rotator cuff tear (RCT) is observed secondary to glenohumeral dislocation, followed by immediate repositioning, as well as formation of scar tissue between tendons and tuberosities. Radiographic diagnosis of such "degloving" tears is problematic because they are obscured by scar tissue. We aimed to describe characteristics of degloving tears and report outcomes following their arthroscopic repair. Read More

Surgical treatment for partial rupture of the distal biceps tendon using palmaris longus tendon graft: A case report.

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2018 Jul 9;52(4):323-325. Epub 2018 Mar 9.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Sapporo Medical University School of Medicine, S1W16, Chuo-ku, Sapporo, 060-8556, Japan.

We report a case of a partial rupture of the distal biceps tendon that was surgically treated using a palmaris longus tendon graft. A 58-year-old man complained of increasing pain with resisted elbow flexion and supination in the antecubital fossa. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed the irregularity of a distal attachment of the biceps brachii and peripheral signal changes. Read More
