Injury to the biceps muscle and tendon can lead to bicep pain and other symptoms. Causes include overuse of the muscle and trauma, but they can result in different types of injury.
Rupture of the distal biceps tendon is an increasingly frequent injury sustained predominantly by middle aged males. Despite the prevalence of sport in this age group, little is known regarding return to sport outcomes following surgery.
A lateral epicondylitis release is a surgery commonly used to treat tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis). It is used when conservative treatments fail to resolve the pain and loss of grip strength caused by this overuse injury. By cutting the damaged tendon at the point where it attaches to the bone, called the lateral epicondyle, the tension in the elbow can be relieved along with accompanying symptoms.
