BACKGROUND Anatomic repair of tendon ruptures is an important goal of surgical treatment. There are limited data on the triceps brachii insertion, footprint, and anatomic reconstruction of the distal triceps tendon. HYPOTHESIS An anatomic repair of distal triceps tendon ruptures more closely imitates the preinjury anatomy and may result in a more durable repair. STUDY DESIGN Descriptive and controlled laboratory studies. METHODS The triceps tendon footprint was measured in 27 cadaveric… CONTINUE READING
