In a new study published in the January 2017 issue of Arthroscopy, both all arthroscopic suprapectoral and open subpectoral tenodesis on the long head of the biceps brachii without the use of interference screws resulted in positive patient outcomes.

“There is controversy in the literature as to where the biceps tenodesis should be performed and if there is superiority of one location over the other and we have tried to address the issue to help treating orthopedic surgeons best manage their patients,” Mark H. Getelman, M.D., co-director sports medicine fellowship at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute in Van Nuys, California told OTW.

The study included 23 patients who had open subpectoral biceps tenodesis and 15 who received all-arthroscopic suprapectoral biceps tenodesis. The average follow-up was 4.5 years. All patients were evaluated for Visual Analog Scale (VAS), American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) score, and satisfaction with function and biceps contour.
