Rupture of the distal tendon of the biceps brachii operative vs. non operative treatment



Rupture of the distal tendon of the biceps brachii operative vs. non operative treatment



Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery American Volume 67(3): 414-417



Cybex testing of 13 patients who had had a rupture of the distal tendon of the biceps brachii was done. The tests were performed 15 mo. to 6 yr after injury. The 10 patients who had had a surgical repair through the 2-incision technique showed a return to normal levels of strength and endurance with regard to both flexion of the elbow and supination of the forearm. The 3 patients who had had conservative treatment showed a remaining deficit in those parameters which was clinically evident in several activities, such as use of a screwdriver or baseball bat.
