Repair of chronic distal biceps brachii tendon rupture using free autogenous semitendinosus tendon



Repair of chronic distal biceps brachii tendon rupture using free autogenous semitendinosus tendon



Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research 1996(323): 188-191



Distal biceps brachii tendon ruptures occur much less frequently than do their proximal counterparts. Distal tendon ruptures usually are associated with considerable function deficits and may require surgical treatment. Repair of chronic distal biceps brachii ruptures are extremely unusual. A free autogenous semitendinosus tendon graft was used to reconstruct the distal biceps tendon by reattaching the graft to the radial tuberosity via a 2-incision technique in a patient with symptoms and a chronic injury.
