Background Primary and secondary lesions of the tendon of the long head of the biceps brachii are common, with no clear consensus about their optimal management. Hypothesis There is no difference in outcomes of tenotomy and tenodesis for lesions of the tendon of the long head of the biceps brachii. Study Design We performed a comprehensive quantitative review of the published English-language literature comparing the outcomes of tenotony and tenodesis for lesions of the tendon of the long head… Expand
