The article offers information on the distal biceps tendon injuries of which the ruptures are accompanied by acute pain. In the process, the hook test is reliable for diagnosing ruptures and magnetic resonance imaging to provide information on the integrity of the tendon. In addition, fixation techniques include the use of bone tunnels, suture anchors and interference screws.

    In this study, minimally invasive CurvTek refixation is introduced as a novel approach for repair of distal biceps tendon ruptures. Exploration at the radial tuberosity is minimized using CurvTek, thereby reducing operative trauma. Treatment outcomes were compared for this technique against the...

    Three percent of all biceps tendon ruptures occur at the distal aspect, where the tendon inserts into the radial tuberosity. Distal bicep tendon ruptures typically occur in middle-aged males after an eccentric extension load is applied to the elbow. Patients usually complain of a sudden, sharp,...
