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.

Long head biceps tendon is a common cause of anterior shoulder pain. Failure of conservative treatment may warrant surgical intervention. Surgical treatment involves long head biceps tenotomy or tenod...
Use of a cortical button for proximal biceps tenodesis has demonstrated strength comparable to that of other types of fixation in biomechanical models, but few studies have evaluated the clinical outc...
The long head of biceps tendon (LHBT) is a well-recognized cause of anterior shoulder pain. Tenotomy or tenodesis of the LHBT is an effective surgical solution for relieving pain arising from the LHBT...

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...
Degenerative changes of the long head of the biceps brachii (LHB) are frequent and often associated with cuff tendinopathy. The function of the LHB in the shoulder is still controversial a...
During arthroscopic rotator cuff (infraspinatus/supraspinatus) repair, biceps tendon lesions are frequently encountered. However, the most optimal treatment of the diseased long head of th...
