A Simple, All-Arthroscopic, Knotless Suture Lasso Loop Technique for Suprapectoral Biceps Tenodesis
Saper D, Li X. A simple, All-Arthroscopic, knotless suture lasso loop technique for suprapectoral biceps tenodesis. Arthroscopy Techniques. May 22;6(3):e635-39.
A variety of pathology of the long head of the biceps tendon can contribute to anterior shoulder pain in adults that can be managed with either arthroscopic tenotomy or tenodesis when conservative treatment fails. Biceps deformity or the Popeye sign is a major concern in patients after tenotomy. Biceps tenodesis can be performed in a variety of ways with different sized anchors and at different locations (suprapectoral or subpectoral). Several studies have shown that patient outcomes and complication rates are similar between all-arthroscopic suprapectoral biceps tenodesis and open subpectoral biceps tenodesis. We describe a simple, knotless, arthroscopic intra-articular biceps tenodesis technique using a 1.5-mm LabralTape lasso loop technique and a 2.9-mm PushLock anchor.
