Solutions for proximal biceps tenodesis, no matter your approach
The proximal biceps tendon is a common source of pain, fraying, or tearing. In many cases, it is simply released from its attachment at the superior labrum. Other patients may benefit from a tenodesis, or reattachment, of the tendon at a different location. Tenodesis of the biceps tendon can prevent cosmetic deformity1 and may preserve strength.2
There are a number of arthroscopic approaches to proximal biceps tenodesis, namely soft tissue tenodesis, subpectoral or suprapectoral tenodesis, or tenodesis within the bicipital groove. Techniques can also vary in whether the tendon is fixated within the bone or on top of cortical bone. CONMED has various anchor offerings to support each approach.
