Comparative Evaluation of Various Techniques of Arthroscopic Tenodesis for Tendon of Long Head of Biceps (multicenter study)


Fifty six patients under 50 years participated in a multicenter study on the comparison of long term (12 – 14 months) results after application of different tenodesis techniques, i.e. sub- and suprapectoral one with fixation by interferent and anchor fixatives. Dicision on patient’s participation in the study was made intraoperatively if rotator cuff pathology was identified and indications to the tendon of long head of biceps were determined. Results were evaluated by Constant – Murley score and SF-36 questionnaire. Statistically significant (p<0.000001) improvement of postoperative indices versus preoperative was noted independently of tenodesis technique applied.
