Chronic rupture of the long head of the biceps tendon: comparison of 2-year results following primary versus revision open subpectoral biceps tenodesis

Spontaneous rupture of the long head of the biceps (LHB) tendon represents up to 90 % of all biceps tendon ruptures and is frequently associated with pathology of the rotator cuff. Most proximal LHB [...]

Anatomy of the Triceps Brachii Tendon

Dr. Millett joined a group of renowned elbow surgeons that conducted a study on the anatomy of the triceps brachii tendon and discussed options related to surgery for triceps tendon ruptures.  Using eight cadaveric elbows, dissections were [...]
