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.

Ultrasound Features of the Proximal Hamstring Muscle-Tendon-Bone Unit.

J Ultrasound Med 2019 May 27;38(5):1367-1382. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Cabinet Imagerie Médicale, Geneva, Switzerland.

The hamstring muscle complex is made by a group of posterior biarticular thigh muscles, originating at the ischial tuberosity, which extend the hip and flex the knee joint. Proximal hamstring injuries are frequent among athletes, commonly involving their long myotendinous junction during an eccentric contraction. In this pictorial essay, we describe the ultrasound technique to visualize the normal anatomy of the proximal hamstring muscle-tendon-bone complex and present ultrasound findings in patients with traumatic injuries and tendinopathies.

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
