Abstract

All-Suture Anchor Fixation for Subpectoral Biceps Tenodesis

Subpectoral biceps tenodesis has recently gained significant popularity for addressing lesions of the long head of the biceps. Several techniques have been reported, with fixation devices such as interference screws, bone tunnels, and suture anchors. Complications reported with this procedure include injuries to neurovascular structures and humeral fractures from an increase in stress. We report a new technique that uses an all-suture anchor for fixation. This may offer the advantages of subpectoral biceps tenodesis, and potentially avoid major post-operative complications.
