The Effect of Biceps Reattachment Site on Moment Arm

  title={The Effect of Biceps Reattachment Site on Moment Arm},
  author={C Schmidt and Allison Wong and Howard},
Avulsion of the distal biceps tendon from the tuberosity occurs mostly in middle-aged males resulting from eccentric loading of the flexed, supinated forearm [1]. When non-operative treatment is chosen, supination strength decreases by 50% and flexion strength is reduced by 35-40% [2]. Surgical repair has been shown to be a better alternative than non-operative treatments for restoration of strength and endurance [2, 3].
