Intratendinous ganglion of the long head of the biceps tendon: US and MRI features (2010: 9b).
Summary of "Intratendinous ganglion of the long head of the biceps tendon: US and MRI features (2010: 9b)."
We present a case report and literature review of the ultrasound (US) and magentic resonance imaging (MRI) features of an intratendinous ganglion originating from the long head of the biceps tendon. Intratendinous ganglia are very rare entities and intratendinous ganglion of the long head of the biceps tendon has only been described once. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report presenting the sonographic features of an intratendinous ganglion originating from the long head of the biceps tendon.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A class of membrane lipids that have a polar head and two nonpolar tails. They are composed of one molecule of the long-chain amino alcohol sphingosine (4-sphingenine) or one of its derivatives, one molecule of a long-chain acid, a polar head alcohol and sometimes phosphoric acid in diester linkage at the polar head group.

Inflammation of the synovial lining of a tendon sheath. Causes include trauma, tendon stress, bacterial disease (gonorrhea, tuberculosis), rheumatic disease, and gout. Common sites are the hand, wrist, shoulder capsule, hip capsule, hamstring muscles, and Achilles tendon. The tendon sheaths become inflamed and painful, and accumulate fluid. Joint mobility is usually reduced.
Surgical procedure by which a tendon is incised at its insertion and placed at an anatomical site distant from the original insertion. The tendon remains attached at the point of origin and takes over the function of a muscle inactivated by trauma or disease.
Shoulder Impingement Syndrome
Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom.

A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.
OBJECTIVE: The presented surgical technique aims at fixation of the long head of the biceps tendon at the proximal humerus, distal to the bicipital groove, after arthroscopic tenotomy. This preserves...
PURPOSE: This study was undertaken to evaluate the incidence of bifurcated distal biceps tendons and the tendon's insertional footprint on the radial tuberosity. METHODS: Twenty-five embalmed cadaveri...
Ruptures of the biceps tendon account for a high percentage of tendon ruptures. The aetiology of proximal ruptures of the long head of the biceps tendon is often degenerative and they are frequently a...
Snapping knee associated with biceps femoris tendon that caused lateral knee pain is reported. The long head of the biceps femoris tendon had an anomalous tibial insertion in addition to the direct ar...
PURPOSE: It is relatively well accepted that the long head of the biceps femoris and the semitendinosus both originate from the ischial tuberosity as a common tendon. However, it is also widely known...
This study objectives are to compare the efficacy and safety between surgical excision and manual rupture for dorsal carpal ganglion.The participants with dorsal carpal ganglion will be ra...
To prospectively assess the healing process following suture of profound fexor tendon due to traumatic rupture of FDP-Tendon in Zone II by ultrasound.
The purpose of this randomized clinical trial is to determine the difference in quality of life outcome at two years, in patients undergoing an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruct...
Introduction- Overuse injury of the Achilles tendon is a common entity in athletes and older athletes are at an increased risk. When the exact origin of tendon pain is unclear, the term te...
To review the influence of patient derived PRGF on the healing process of Achilles tendon after a surgical correction of a complete tear.
