Treatment Trends for Bicep Injuries

For patients with tendinopathy both surgical and nonsurgical treatments show promise, need more study

For Immediate Release
11/1/2010 - American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons

Synopsis:

A patient with a long head bicep (LHB) tendinopathy, which is a pain and/or tearing of the tendon, may also have a shoulder injury or condition and/or a rotator cuff tear. LHB tendinopahy can be caused by injury, trauma, overuse, inflammation or degeneration. Because of the variety of the causes of this condition, and the range of possible severity, a patient needs a thorough examination, including radiographic imagery to determine the diagnosis and treatment. Traditional treatments include both surgical - biceps tenotomy or tenodesis, between which the article found no preference - and nonsurgical approaches.

Hip Arthroscopy: Indications and Techniques

Hip arthroscopy has been performed since the 1990s, but the surgical technique and instrumentation has evolved dramatically over the past few years. The number of treatment options for hip injuries has grown dramatically and will continue to grow as our understanding of hip pathology and technological advancements improve. Until recently, indications for hip arthroscopy were labral debridement, chondroplasty, synovectomy for synovial proliferative disease, loose body removal, and irrigation and debridement. In 2003, Ganz et al introduced the concept of femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI), which may be the most common cause of hip osteoarthritis (OA).1
