Tension-Slide Technique

As part of the distal biceps repair procedure, the tension-slide technique with the BicepsButton™ implant provides a simple, reproducible, and biomechanically stable repair. This tensioning technique reliably draws the tendon against the distal cortex of the bone socket. Adding a tenodesis screw improves the biomechanical strength and allows the tendon to be placed in a more anatomic position.

The all-suture FiberTak® button can be used in lieu of traditional metal buttons for both bicortical and unicortical tension-slide tenodesis techniques.
