Biceps tenodesis versus biceps tenotomy for biceps tendinitis without rotator cuff tears.

J Clin Orthop Trauma 2019 Mar-Apr;10(2):248-256. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust, UK.

Disorders of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHB) are a well-recognised cause of shoulder pain despite the function of the long head of the biceps remaining poorly understood. There has been a dramatic rise in the number of biceps tenodesis procedures being performed in the last decade. This may partly be attributed to concerns regarding residual cosmetic deformity and pain after biceps tenotomy though there is little evidence to suggest that functional outcomes of tenodesis are superior to biceps tenotomy.

Collagen type III content of the long head of the biceps tendon as an indicator of glenohumeral arthritis.

Mol Cell Biochem 2019 Apr 28;454(1-2):25-31. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Department of Clinical & Translational Science, Creighton University School of Medicine, Omaha, NE, USA.

Tendonosis is characterized by an increase in collagen type III relative to collagen type I, but the precise ratio of collagen type I to collagen type III in pathologic shoulder tendons has not been reported. A tendon continuously bathed in an OA synovial environment may exhibit histomorphologic differences as compared to those from shoulders with a preserved articular surface. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the biochemical and histological differences in the proximal portion of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT) from a non-arthritic versus an arthritic glenohumeral joint.

Biceps Tendon Sheath Injection: An Anatomical Conundrum.

Pain Med 2019 01;20(1):138-142

Division of Anatomy, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Objective: Long head biceps tendon peritendinous or sheath injections are routinely administered at or immediately distally to the bicipital groove. The main indication for injection remains the clinical diagnosis or treatment of biceps tendinopathy, although true inflammation of the tendon within the bicipital groove is rare. Because the tendon sheath is merely an extension of the joint cavity, it is plausible to assume that an injection into the sheath would result in intraarticular spread. Read More

Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair With Mini-open Subpectoral Biceps Tenodesis.

Arthrosc Tech 2017 Oct 25;6(5):e1667-e1674. Epub 2017 Sep 25.

Steadman Philippon Research Institute, Vail, Colorado, U.S.A.

With a range of tear characteristics such as chronicity, degree of fatty atrophy, and number of tendons involved as well as varying patient-specific characteristics including age, injury mechanism, and expectations after treatment to consider, proper and successful treatment of a rotator cuff tear is multifactorial and, consequently, challenging. Although conservative management of a rotator cuff tear may be successful, a more severe tear with involvement of more tendons may warrant surgical intervention. Furthermore, additional pathology including biceps tendinopathy may result in greater patient morbidity and an even more complex treatment decision-making process and surgical technique. Read More

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Multidisciplinary Hospital, Inowrocław, Poland.

Background: Disorders of the long head of the biceps (LHB) tendon are a common source of shoulder pain and disability. This tendon can be well visualised 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.

Examination of concomitant glenohumeral pathologies in patients treated arthroscopically for calcific tendinitis of the shoulder and implications for routine diagnostic joint exploration.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2017 Nov 21;18(1):476. Epub 2017 Nov 21.

Department of Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery, Medical Center - Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg, Faculty of Medicine, Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg, Hugstetter Strasse 55, 79106, Freiburg, Germany.

Background: Glenohumeral exploration is routinely performed during arthroscopic removal of rotator cuff calcifications in patients with calcific tendinitis of the shoulder (CTS). However, evidence on the prevalence of intraarticular co-pathologies is lacking and the benefit of glenohumeral exploration remains elusive. The aim of the present study was to assess and quantify intraoperative pathologies during arthroscopic removal of rotator cuff calcifications in order to determine whether standardized diagnostic glenohumeral exploration appears justified in CTS patients.

Electron microscope study of the advanced tendinopathy process of the long head of the biceps brachii tendon treated arthroscopically.

Folia Morphol (Warsz) 2018 13;77(2):371-377. Epub 2017 Nov 13.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Multidisciplinary Hospital, Poznanska street, 97, 88-100 Inowroclaw, Poland.

Background: The ultrastructural alterations related to tendinopathy have not been well described. Most studies on this subject have been conducted many years ago and focused on material from the Achilles tendon. It was demonstrated that various comorbidities can affect ultrastructural alterations in the advanced tendinopathy; however, there is very little data on ultrastructural morphology in tendinopathies related to mechanical overload as in case of the long head of the biceps brachii tendon (LHBT).

Open subpectoral biceps tenodesis in patients over 65 does not result in an increased rate of complications.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2017 Nov 6;18(1):430. Epub 2017 Nov 6.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington, CT, USA.

Background: Long head biceps tendon pathology is a common cause of anterior shoulder pain and is often associated with other shoulder conditions, such as rotator cuff tears and osteoarthritis. It is well accepted that older patients are at increased risk for major and minor peri- and postoperative complications. The purpose of this study is to investigate patients over 65 years old who underwent subpectoral biceps tenodesis and compare the complication rates of this group to those of patients younger than 65 years old.

Process of neovascularisation compared with pain intensity in tendinopathy of the long head of the biceps brachii tendon associated with concomitant shoulder disorders, after arthroscopic treatment. Microscopic evaluation supported by immunohistochemical.

Folia Morphol (Warsz) 2018 24;77(2):378-385. Epub 2017 Oct 24.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Multidisciplinary Hospital Inowrocław, Poland.

Background: Tendinopathy of the long head of the biceps brachii tendon (LHBT) is one of the most common, painful conditions of the anterior part of the shoulder and often coexists with rotator cuff tears. Multifactorial aetiopathology of tendi-nopathy is poorly understood; however, several studies indicated that it is seen predominantly in areas with decreased vascularity of the tissue; the pathology is also characterised by expansive and abundant neovascular in-growth. The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between the neovascularisation of proximal part of the LHBT and pain along the bicipital groove. Read More

The waterpolo shoulder paradigm: results of ultrasound surveillance at poolside.

BMJ Open Sport Exerc Med 2017 28;3(1):e000211. Epub 2017 Jul 28.

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, University of Florence, Florence, Italy.

Background: Waterpolo consists of a combination of swimming and throwing with close contact between players. The shoulder is the most frequently injured joint, with a combination of rotator cuff tear and tendinopathy, long head biceps tendinopathy, superior labral lesions and shoulder impingement. This unique combination is a challenge for the clinician who must determine which of these shoulder pathologies is responsible for the onset of pain and the best strategy to rehabilitate the joint and prevent recurrence.

Pain and the pathogenesis of biceps tendinopathy.

Am J Transl Res 2017 15;9(6):2668-2683. Epub 2017 Jun 15.

Department of Clinical and Translational Science, Creighton University School of MedicineOmaha, NE, USA.

Biceps tendinopathy is a relatively common ailment that typically presents as pain, tenderness, and weakness in the tendon of the long head of the biceps brachii. Though it is often associated with degenerative processes of the rotator cuff and the joint, this is not always the case, thus, the etiology remains considerably unknown. There has been recent interest in elucidating the pathogenesis of tendinopathy, since it can be an agent of chronic pain, and is difficult to manage. Read More

MicroRNAs associated with inflammation in shoulder tendinopathy and glenohumeral arthritis.

Mol Cell Biochem 2018 Jan 20;437(1-2):81-97. Epub 2017 Jun 20.

Department of Clinical & Translational Science, Creighton University School of Medicine, Omaha, NE, USA.

Inflammation is associated with glenohumeral arthritis and rotator cuff tendon tears. Epigenetically, miRNAs tightly regulate various genes involved in the inflammatory response. Alterations in the expression profile of miRNAs and the elucidation of their target genes with respect to the pathophysiology could improve the understanding of their regulatory role and therapeutic potential.
