Abstract

Purpose

To compare the effectiveness of tenodesis and tenotomy in the treatment of long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT) lesions. The null hypothesis was that there is no difference in functional scores between the tenotomy and tenodesis groups.

Methods

A total of 69 patients with a combined supraspinatus tear and LHBT lesion aged over 40 years entered this prospective comparative study and were randomly assigned to the arthroscopic LHB tenotomy or tenodesis group. Fifty-five patients (31 in the tenotomy group and 24 in the tenodesis group) were available for the 6- and 24-month post-operative evaluations.

Results

There were no statistically significant differences in post-operative Constant and Murley score, quality of life, pain, and strengths between groups. Higher rates of Popeye’s sign were noted 6 and 24 months post-operatively in the tenotomy group compared to tenodesis.

Conclusions

Although tenotomy is affected by a higher incidence of cosmetic deformity, there is no superiority of arthroscopic tenodesis over tenotomy in the treatment of LHBT lesion as a concomitant procedure to an arthroscopic repair of the supraspinatus tendon in terms of functional outcomes, quality of life, pain, and strength measured 6 and 24 months post-operatively.
