Techniques in Shoulder & Elbow Surgery: September 2015 - Volume 16 - Issue 3 - p 89-92 doi: 10.1097/BTE.0000000000000057 Buy Metrics Abstract Rupture of the distal bicep brachii tendon has received significant attention as a result of increased awareness of injury, numerous surgical fixation techniques, and debate regarding single versus dual incision surgery. The majority of ruptures may be fixed primarily. On rare occasion, the tendon may be attritionaly thinned, or may not have the elasticity to be directly repaired back to the radial tuberosity. We describe a technique for using acellular dermal allograft to augment (not bridge) attritional distal biceps ruptures. Copyright © 2015 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
