All-Arthroscopic Long Head of the Biceps Transfer: An Optional Technique for Soft-Tissue Biceps Tenodesis.

Arthrosc Tech 2020 May 10;9(5):e611-e615. Epub 2020 Apr 10.

Department of Orthopaedics, Faculty of Medicine, Thammasat University, Pathumthani, Thailand.

Proximal tendinopathy of the long head of the biceps (LHB) is a common shoulder problem that requires surgical intervention, especially in patients with concomitant rotator cuff tears. The comparative results of biceps tenotomy and biceps tenodesis are still doubtful; both techniques show good to excellent results in terms of postoperative pain and functional outcomes. The described technique-all-arthroscopic LHB transfer-is an optional biceps tenodesis technique using all-arthroscopic soft-tissue tenodesis and arthroscopic suturing of the LHB to the short head of the biceps and coracoacromial ligament combined with release of the LHB from the bicipital groove.

Suprapectoral versus subpectoral tenodesis for Long Head Biceps Brachii tendinopathy: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2020 Jun 24;106(4):693-700. Epub 2020 May 24.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis, Amsterdam, P.O.Box 95500, 1090HM, Amsterdam. The Netherlands.

Background: Suprapectoral long head biceps (LHB) tenodesis and subpectoral LHB tenodesis are both commonly performed surgical procedures. Due to the more proximal position of the suprapectoral tenodesis site this technique may be accompanied with more postoperative pain in the bicipital groove and cramping pain in the biceps muscle. We hypothesized that subpectoral tenodesis is associated with a better clinical outcome than suprapectoral tenodesis. Read More

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

Attrition tendinitis of long head of biceps brachii in relation to humeral head osteonecrosis: case report.

J Surg Orthop Adv 2013 ;22(3):245-8

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

This case report identifies a 41-year-old male patient who developed anterior shoulder pain in the setting of humeral head osteonecrosis. As a consequence of the cartilage degeneration, multiple loose bodies formed and migrated into the bicipital tendon sheath, causing attrition tendinitis, which was a feature of the clinical presentation. The patient was treated by a combination of arthroscopic glenohumeral joint debridement and open tenodesis of the biceps using a suture anchor. Read More

Anatomic and radiographic comparison of arthroscopic suprapectoral and open subpectoral biceps tenodesis sites.

Am J Sports Med 2013 Dec 20;41(12):2919-24. Epub 2013 Sep 20.

Marc Tompkins, University of Minnesota, 2450 Riverside Avenue South, Suite R200, Minneapolis, MN 55454.

Background: Arthroscopic suprapectoral and open subpectoral surgical techniques are both commonly utilized approaches for proximal biceps tenodesis of the long head of the biceps brachii. A central limitation to the widespread use of an arthroscopic approach for biceps tenodesis is that the tendon may be tenodesed too proximally in the bicipital groove, leading to persistent pain and tendinopathy. Purpose/

Hypothesis: The purpose of this study was to determine the in vivo tenodesis location using arthroscopic suprapectoral and open subpectoral techniques for proximal biceps tenodesis in relation to clinically pertinent anatomic and radiographic landmarks. Read More

The low-anterolateral portal for arthroscopic biceps tenodesis: description of technique and cadaveric study.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2014 Feb 12;22(2):462-6. Epub 2013 Feb 12.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Minnesota, 2450 Riverside Ave S #R200, Minneapolis, MN, 55454, USA.

Purpose: Arthroscopic biceps tenodesis surgery is an important procedure for the correction of biceps tendonitis or in conjunction with rotator cuff repair with biceps symptoms. Recent trends have developed in placing the biceps tendon lower in the bicipital groove for a tenodesis. However, a more distal biceps tenodesis location is technically challenging when carried out arthroscopically with standard posterior and lateral portals. Read More

Radial extracorporeal pressure pulse therapy for the primary long bicipital tenosynovitis a prospective randomized controlled study.

Ultrasound Med Biol 2012 May 16;38(5):727-35. Epub 2012 Mar 16.

Orthopaedic Department, Medical College Affiliated Hospital of Chinese People's Armed Police Force, Tianjin, China.

Long bicipital tenosynovitis is regarded as one of the common causes of shoulder pain and dysfunction. The traditional therapeutic approach includes a variety of conservative treatments, but these treatments are not substantiated, owing to the lack of proven clinical efficacy. Radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy (rESWT) uses a pneumatically generated and radially propagating low-energy pressure pulse and has been clinically shown to be a new alternative form of treating refractory soft tissue inflammation.

Biceps pulley: normal anatomy and associated lesions at MR arthrography.

Radiographics 2011 May-Jun;31(3):791-810

Department of Radiology, Jichi Medical University School of Medicine, 3311-1 Yakushiji, Shimotsuke-shi, Tochigi-ken 329-0498, Japan.

The biceps pulley or "sling" is a capsuloligamentous complex that acts to stabilize the long head of the biceps tendon in the bicipital groove. The pulley complex is composed of the superior glenohumeral ligament, the coracohumeral ligament, and the distal attachment of the subscapularis tendon, and is located within the rotator interval between the anterior edge of the supraspinatus tendon and the superior edge of the subscapularis tendon. Because of its superior depiction of the capsular components, direct magnetic resonance arthrography is the imaging modality of choice for demonstrating both the normal anatomy and associated lesions of the biceps pulley.
