Tenodesi del bicipite

Tecnica chirurgica

The proximal biceps tendon is a common source of pain and fraying or tearing. In many cases, it is simply released from its attachment at the superior labrum, while 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 open and 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.

Quello che dicono i nostri clienti:“TenoLok è la mia ancora preferita per le riparazioni con tenodesi. “La doppia fissazione di quest’ancora consente un’inserzione sicura al tessuto osseo corticale e sottocorticale, senza causare i danni tendinei osservati con l’uso delle viti ad interferenza.”
