Rupture of the distal biceps brachii tendon



Rupture of the distal biceps brachii tendon



Journal of Trauma 26(11): 1061-1062



A 53-year-old male, while lifting a heavy object, suffered a rupture of the distal biceps brachii tendon. Due to extremely well developed musculature, the patient had retained surprisingly good powers of supination and flexion, albeit decreased in comparison to the other side. During the following operation, the torn tendon was sutured to the tendon of the brachial muscle, with good results. In this type of patient, the mentioned operative procedure is preferable, rather than the more hazardous reinsertion of the tendon, which should only be used in cases with a significant loss of supination and flexion power.
