Failure of biceps tenodesis with interference screw fixation.
Summary of "Failure of biceps tenodesis with interference screw fixation."
Tenodesis is a common surgical procedure used to treat pain caused by inflammation or instability of the long head of the biceps tendon. Many studies have evaluated different forms of fixation and their biomechanical characteristics, but few have discussed clinical complications or failures as a result of these techniques. The purpose of this article is to report a case series of 3 patients with failures after undergoing arthroscopic biceps tenodesis with an interference screw.
