The article offers information about biceps tendon and superior labrum injuries. Biceps tendon originates from the labrum and the supraglenoid tubercle of the scapula, where pathological conditions include tendinitis, superior labrum anterior and posterior lesions, and biceps instability. Aspects of treating biceps include cause, degree of structural compromise, and the associated pathological conditions like rotator cuff disease and impingement.

    We dissected the shoulders of 20 human foetuses to anatomical study. The purpose of this study was to characterize the anatomical origin of the long head tendon of the muscle biceps brachii (LHBBT) in human foetuses and its relationships with the glenoid labrum of the scapula. The results had...
