Pathology of the long head of the biceps (LHB) includes tendinitis, partial tears, subluxation, and/or dislocation. Depending on the severity of the pathology, surgical management of these lesions may be indicated, including debridement, tenotomy, or tenodesis. There is, however, ongoing controversy regarding which surgical technique – specifically, long head of the biceps tenotomy or tenodesis – results in the best patient outcomes.

The purpose of this study by Dr. Verma and his team was to provide a systematic review of clinical outcome studies examining long head biceps tenotomy or tenodesis performed concurrently with rotator cuff repair, and to perform a meta-analysis of data from comparative studies.
