Arthroscopic Repair of Concomitant Supraspinatus and Subscapularis Tears with Biceps Tenodesis

March 01, 2017

Contributors: Anthony P. Trenga, BA; Stephen F Brockmeier, MD

Rotator cuff tears affect more than 40% of individuals older than 60. Arthroscopic repair of rotator cuff tears has been the standard for over a decade. More recently, arthroscopic tenodesis of the long head of the biceps has been increasingly performed along with repairs of the rotator cuff. In patients undergoing arthroscopic biceps tenodesis, as many as 92% have rotator cuff pathology and nearly 73% have concomitant repair of the rotator cuff. Biceps tenodesis is indicated in patients with pain or instability secondary to biceps tendinopathy, who have failed conservative measures, and are physically active, laborers, or concerned with cosmetic deformity. We present our surgical technique for arthroscopic repair of the supraspinatus and subscapularis and long head biceps tenodesis in a single shoulder with concomitant pathology.
