Modified Biceps Repair Study presented in Milan at SECEC Congress
“Safety and long term outcomes of distal biceps repairs using a modified entry point” (podium presentation) presented at the SECEC (European Society for Surgery of the Shoulder and Elbow) conference in Milan, Italy by Dr Vikie Leon on behalf of SSRI.
Less invasive surgical procedures are definitely on the rise and in demand. They are of benefit to the patient not only for cosmetic and comfort reasons but because such refinement can help reduce risk.
Modifying the surgical entry point during distal biceps repair has been shown to reduce the risk of PIN nerve damage. Would use of an adjusted technique also protect post-operative flexion and supination strength? We found that it does, and so has proven to be a safe, reliable alternative.
