The Biceps Tendon: From Proximal to Distal

Source: The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery

The function of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHB) in shoulder glenohumeral biomechanics is unclear. However, there is agreement that the biceps can develop tendinopathy resulting in pain over the anterior aspect of the shoulder, specifically in the bicipital groove1,2. With recent advancements in arthroscopy and more detailed imaging, selection of appropriate management for proximal biceps disorders is important.
