Complete rupture of the distal biceps tendon is a rare injury, the overwhelming majority occurring in the dominant arm of males during the fourth to sixth decades of life. Simultaneous bilateral rupture of the distal biceps tendon is an extremely rare occurrence, with only three cases reported in the literature. This unusual injury occurred in a recreational weightlifter during a preacher curl exercise. In this particular case, a 6-week delay in presentation necessitated a staged procedure in…

Simultaneous Bilateral Distal Biceps Musculotendinous and Distal Avulsion Injuries: A Case Report.
TLDR
The first known case of simultaneous bilateral distal biceps injuries occurring at different anatomic locations is reported, and one side was operatively managed, whereas the other underwent conservative treatment.
Simultaneous bilateral distal biceps tendon ruptures repaired using an endobutton technique: a case report
TLDR
This work describes what it believes to be the first case of simultaneous bilateral distal biceps tendon ruptures successfully treated with a single-incision endobutton technique, which represents a valid option in managing this difficult problem.
Reconstruction of delayed diagnoses simultaneous bilateral distal biceps tendon ruptures using semtendinosus and quadriceps tendon autografts
TLDR
It is concluded that six weeks after trauma the degree of retraction of the distal biceps tendon can impair direct repair, and the Quadriceps tendon is a previously non reported type of graft material for this type of surgery.
No functional differences in anatomic reconstruction with one vs. two suture anchors after non-simultaneous bilateral distal biceps brachii tendon rupture: a case report and review of the literature
TLDR
Clinical data of a patient with non-simultaneous bilateral distal biceps tendon ruptures treated with a different number of suture anchors for each side (one vs. two) are demonstrated and it is hypothesized that there are no significant differences between a one-point or a two-point fixation.

There is a role for allografts in reconstructive surgery of the elbow and forearm
TLDR
There is a large variety of pathology and procedures involving the use of various types of allografts in orthopedic reconstructive surgery of the elbow and forearm.

Repair of distal biceps brachii tendon ruptures.
Complete rupture of the distal biceps brachii tendon in female patients: a report of 2 cases.
TLDR
It is speculated that the increased level of activity and greater sports involvement of women at all ages will lead to an increased incidence in distal biceps tendon ruptures in female patients.
Rupture of the distal biceps brachil tendon. Report on 13 cases.
TLDR
Nine cases that have been subjected to surgical repair and an additional four unrepaired cases are reported, raising the question as to whether this tendon should be reattached at its anatomical point of insertion on the biceps brachii.
Late repair of simultaneous bilateral distal biceps brachii tendon avulsion with fascia lata graft.
TLDR
Bilateral fascia lata grafts to bridge the gap between the retracted biceps bellies and the radial tuberosities were successful in restoring function and flexion power to the elbow.
Reconstruction of Chronic Ruptures of the Distal Biceps Tendon with Use of an Achilles Tendon Allograft
TLDR
Reconstruction of chronic disruptions of the distal biceps tendon with an Achilles tendon allograft appears to offer a satisfactory technical solution for this challenging problem and has provided satisfactory clinical results to date.
Reconstruction of chronic distal biceps tendon rupture with use of fascia lata combined with a ligament augmentation device: a report of 3 cases.
TLDR
3 cases of chronic distal biceps tendon rupture in which reconstruction was performed with use of a fascia lata autograft combined with a ligament augmentation device are presented.
Distal Biceps Brachii Repair: Results in Dominant and Nondominant Extremities
TLDR
Nine patients with distal biceps tendon ruptures that had been repaired anatomically with a double‐incision technique were evaluated, representing the largest series of operatively treated nondominant biceps ruptures with quantitative followup in the literature.
Rupture of the Distal Biceps Tendon
TLDR
It is concluded that anatomic reinsertion of the avulsed distal biceps tendon to the radius is the preferred treatment in acute as well as chronic injuries.
