The anatomic footprint of the biceps is slightly posterior to the apical prominence of the bicipital tuberosity. Single-incision and double-incision methods for repairing distal biceps tendon ruptures have been described. However, previously described single-incision techniques have been unable to accurately re-establish the anatomic position of the tendinous insertion. We describe our technique of performing an anatomic distal biceps repair using a single anterior incision. The proposed benefits of this technique include the restoration of the anatomic footprint area, insertion site, and consequently the native cam effect of the bicipital tuberosity all through a single incision. From a patient’s perspective, the proposed benefit of this technique includes the restoration of supination strength using a single incision. Copyright © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
