The incidence of pathologic changes of the long head of the biceps tendon.
The high incidence of chronic inflammation of the long head of the biceps in shoulders with benign-appearing intraarticular portions viewed arthroscopically is significant, and long head-of-the-biceps disease should also be considered in patients with painful rotator cuff disease and arthritic shoulder conditions.

Two-part and Three-part Fractures of the Proximal Humerus Treated With Suture Fixation
Two-part and three-part GT and SN fractures can be treated satisfactorily with heavy nonabsorbable rotator cuff–incorporating sutures, particularly in elderly patients. Expand
Orthopaedic surgery milestones.
Peter J. Stern, MD, is Norman S. & Elizabeth C.A. Hill Professor and Chairman of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine; Stephen Albanese, MD, is Professor and ChairExpand
Distal biceps tendon rupture: biomechanical analysis of repair strength of the Bio-Tenodesis screw versus suture anchors.
Use of the Bio-Tenodesis screw is an effective means of repairing distal biceps tendon ruptures and provides significantly more initial pullout strength compared with suture anchors. Expand
Shoulder Dislocation in the Older Patient
Although dislocation is a common injury in the older population, these concomitant injuries—especially of the rotator cuff—are often missed. Expand
Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty for irreparable rotator cuff tears and cuff tear arthropathy.
Reverse shoulder arthroplasty has been shown to increase patient function and decrease pain and with stringent patient selection criteria and meticulous technique, high patient satisfaction scores are typically achieved in these patients, at least in the short term. Expand
Split Pectoralis Major Transfer for Serratus Anterior Palsy
This paper describes the preferred technique of directly transferring the sternal head of the pectoralis major to the inferior angle of the scapula through 2 limited incisions, which reduces the possibility of graft stretching, preventing the recurrence of winging, and accomplishes satisfactory cosmesis. Expand
Anatomy of the pectoralis minor tendon and its use in acromioclavicular joint reconstruction.
It is hypothesize that, in cases of acromioclavicular joint separation necessitating operative intervention, the use of the pectoralis minor tendon as a potential source of autograft tissue is anatomically feasible and it is slightly stronger than the coracoacromial ligament. Expand
Functional outcomes of distal triceps tendon repair comparing transosseous bone tunnels with suture anchor constructs.
Primary repair of distal triceps tendon ruptures yields good, durable patient outcomes with minimal rerupture regardless of repair construct, with a statistically significant difference in transosseous tunnels and suture anchors. Expand
Olecranon tip osteoarticular autograft transfer for irreparable coronoid process fracture: a biomechanical study
In this biomechanical study of irreparable coronoid fracture, autograft olecranon tip transfer restored posterior elbow stability to a level not significantly different from the intact elbow in five of eight elbow positions tested. Expand
