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
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
Athletic Hip Impingement
Athletes with hip impingement tolerate pain because they worry hip surgery could end their career. But an orthopedic surgeon has found the opposite: Arthroscopic surgery can correct the defect and return athletes to their previous performance level.

New Study Finds Arthroscopic Hip Surgery May Fully Restore Function in Athletes
(CHICAGO)– Hip problems can sideline even the best athletes, but a new study led by orthopedic experts from Rush University Medical Center indicates that the use of minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery to treat painful disorders of the hip may give athletes who undergo the procedure another opportunity to resume their sport back at their pre-injury level of competition.
MI Surgery…Return to Play!
If you were once a star running back, you could get there again, say researchers from Rush University Medical Center.

Arthroscopic Treatment of Common Hip Problem Allows Athletes to Return to Play, Study Finds
Patients who undergo arthroscopic surgery for a mechanical disorder of the hip have a good chance of being able to return to their sport at a high level of competition, according to a study that will be presented at the annual meeting of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, held July 15-18 in Providence, R.I. Almost 80 percent of patients were able to return to play after hip arthroscopy at an average of 9.4 months after surgery, and roughly 90 percent were able to return to the same level of competition.
Age, heavy lifting among factors that determine success of superior labrum repair
Patients who are older than 40 years of age, engage in heavy lifting at work or use alcohol or tobacco are likely to see poorer results from superior labrum anterior to posterior (SLAP) repair, according to a recent study.
