Rotator cuff tears affect more than 40% of individuals older than 60 years. For more than a decade, arthroscopic repair has been the standard treatment option for rotator cuff tears. Recently, arthroscopic tenodesis of the long head of the biceps has been increasingly performed in combination with rotator cuff repair. As many as 92% of patients undergoing arthroscopic biceps tenodesis have rotator cuff pathology and nearly 73% undergo concomitant rotator cuff repair. Biceps tenodesis is indicated in patients with pain or instability secondary to biceps tendinopathy who are physically active, laborers, or have cosmesis concerns and in whom nonsurgical treatment has failed. This video presents our surgical technique for arthroscopic repair of the supraspinatus and subscapularis and tenodesis of the long head of the biceps in a shoulder with concomitant pathology.
