The triceps tendon has been described as a single unit with contributions from the medial, lateral, and long heads of the muscle. During the course of performing a triceps tendon repair, we noted a specific deep tendon separate from the more superficial tendon. This observation stimulated us to perform an anatomical study to define the triceps tendon in greater detail. The purpose of this study is to better define the triceps brachii tendon and its insertion and discuss the clinical implications of our findings.
