Dominant vs Nondominant Arm in Surgical Repair of Distal Biceps Tendon Rupture. A Case-Control Series of Isotonic Muscle Strength Evaluation

SUMMARY Background. This case-control study investigated arm recovery from surgery for a ruptured distal tendon in terms of maximal strength, power, and endurance compared to the healthy contralateral arm, taking into account limb dominance. Methods. An S-shaped single incision and suture anchor repair was used in all 15 patients. All patients were right-arm dominant and of them none … Continued

Reconstruction of acute distal biceps tendon ruptures with ToggleLoc. Clinical, functional and radiographic outcomes at 5-year follow-up

Background. Distal biceps brachii tendon ruptures are a relatively uncommon injury, with a reported incidence of 0.9 to 1.8 per 100,000 people per year. The aim of this study is to report the clinical, functional, radiographic outcomes of the distal biceps tendon repair with Toggle Loc at 5 year follow up. Methods. All the patients … Continued
