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.

The long head of the biceps (LHB) is commonly implicated in shoulder pathology due to its anatomic course and intimacy with the rotator cuff and superior labrum of the glenoid. Treatment of tendinosis...
Long head of the biceps (LHB) tendon pathology is a common cause of pain in the shoulder. Pathology encountered includes biceps tendon tears and tendonitis, biceps anchor or superior labral tears, and...
Surgical techniques for proximal biceps tenodesis that include penetration of the posterior humeral cortex for fixation may pose risk to the surrounding neurovascular structures.
The aim of this article is to compare tibial fixation strength of suspensory fixation for a quadrupled semitendinosus continuous loop all-inside anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) construct versus a dou...
Fixation of lateral condyle distal humeral fractures has traditionally been achieved with K-wires. Screw fixation provides the advantage of compression across the fracture site, but the results of scr...
The long head of biceps brachii tendon has been known to be a pain generator and a common cause of shoulder pain and dysfunction in patients with rotator cuff pathology. Both biceps tenot...
Biceps Tenodesis is currently advocated for older, less active patients, but to date is not often advocated for Superior Labral Tear from Anterior to Posterior (SLAP) tears in young, activ...
I hypothesize that absorbable screw fixation of the foot's Lisfranc ligaments does not yield significant differences in postoperative foot stability, ligament function, and symptoms when c...
The primary purpose of this study is to assess the impact of sliding hip screws versus cannulated screw fixation on rates of revision surgery at 2 years in individuals over 50 years of age...
