The loop-the-loop stitch technique for long head of biceps tenodesis
- 148 Downloads
We present a simple, reproducible and quick method of securing the intra-articular portion of the long head of biceps in preparation for tenodesis. Securing the long head of biceps from the joint with per-tendinous suture or simple loop can result in loss of the tendon down the groove, which can be difficult to retrieve. Arthroscopic passage of the loop-the-loop suture provides dependable, reproducible control of the biceps, and can be prepared for tenodesis by whatever subsequent method.
