Biceps Tenodesis: Fix it in the Subpectoral Region
E. Lyle Cain Jr., MD, (Birmingham, AL) details his rationale to tenodese the biceps tendon in the subpectoral region. He discusses bicipital groove pain as a main indication for a subpectoral tenodesis. Dr. Cain also addresses the argument of stress risers in the humerus, and shows how he mitigates this by using a 5.5 mm SwiveLock® anchor and drilling the tunnel 2 cm distal to the transverse humeral ligament at the metaphyseal-diaphyseal junction.
