Various techniques have been described to repair the distal biceps tendon. The optimal technique would incorporate a limited 1-incision technique with maximal strength and minimal gapping of the repair to allow early range of motion. We describe a modified use of a cortical button, the tension-slide technique, which allows for a transverse anterior incision and the ability to tension and dock the repair through the anterior incision. There is no need to predetermine the length of suture between… CONTINUE READING
