Arthroscopic All-Inside Biceps Tenodesis: Technique and Outcomes

Publication date: Available online 9 November 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Edward Thomas Haupt, Kevin O'Keefe, Kevin FarmerAbstractThe long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT) is a frequent source of disorders and pathology in the shoulder. Significant evidence is available on the management of disorders of the LHBT in the literature, and the LHBT is frequently addressed intraoperatively when involved in shoulder pathology. An all-arthroscopic, intra-articular biceps tenodesis with suture anchor fixation has several advantages that have not been well described previously, and it does not add significant morbidity to arthroscopic surgery to treat the rotator cuff or other sources of pain. Intra-articular LHBT tenodesis in the bicipital groove thus has advantages of less surgical time and a decreased bone footprint.

ConclusionA long history of shoulder pain that is not responsive to conservative management in young patients should raise the suspicion of an "OO", and physicians should be encouraged to use early advanced imaging modalities in order to confirm it.

ProvencherAbstractAlthough chronic pain and dysfunction of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint can reliably be treated with distal clavicle excision, disruption of the local stabilizing ligamentous structures may result in iatrogenic instability of the joint. Iatrogenic AC joint instability is a rare condition caused by over resection of the distal clavicle with unintended injury to the stabilizing ligaments in the treatment of AC...

Authors: Plečko M, Bohaček I, Tripković B, Čimić M, Jelić M, Delimar D Abstract Anterior section of the hip joint capsule is innervated by femoral nerve and obturator nerve, and posterior section is innervated by the nerve to quadratus femoris muscle and occasionally by the superior gluteal (posterolateral region) and sciatic nerve (posterosuperior region). One of the regional anesthesia options for hip surgery is the fascia iliaca compartment block (FICB) that affects nerves important for hip innervation and sensory innervation of the thigh - femoral, obturator and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. FICB can b...

Recent research has examined the comparative effectiveness of nonoperative treatments for patellar tendinopathy using a network meta-analysis method. This method allows analysis of a network of clinical trials individually studying different treatment options in comparison to an eccentric exercise control; however, most treatments have not been compared head to head. Although leukocyte-rich platelet-rich plasma is statistically ranked as the treatment with the highest improvements in pain and function, concerns over the assumption of transitivity (on which network meta-analysis is based) and the lack of connection or compa...

Hip pain in the young athletic population is often caused by femoroacetabular impingement morphology. If a patient fails conservative management, hip arthroscopy becomes a potential treatment option. Our ability to maximize patient outcomes after hip arthroscopy is directly related to preoperative patient selection, intraoperative technical ability, and attention to detail in the postoperative period. When considering surgery as a therapeutic option, we want to first identify that the pain is truly stemming from the hip.

Publication date: Available online 23 October 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Rami George Alrabaa, Julian Sonnenfeld, David Trofa, Christopher AhmadAbstractMedial epicondylitis, also known as “golfer's elbow,” is a common orthopaedic condition that typically results from overuse of the flexor pronator mass. Repetitive eccentric loading of the muscles responsible for wrist flexion and forearm pronation leads to microtrauma and subsequent degeneration of the flexor pronator tendon. Patients with medial epicondylitis typically present in the fourth to sixth decade of life and have an insidious onset o...
