split tear in bicep tendon
I just got my MR arthrogram results and it says "There is a subtle contrast filled cleft in the long head biceps tendon within the bicipital groove raising suspicion for a small longitudinal tear."

Right now I have severe pain in my shoulder and arm. I've been dealing with shoulder pain for 3 years now but finally found a doctor who would do the MRI. I just wanted to give some background info.

Anyways. Im trying to figure out what this means. My doc is contacting an orthopedic surgeon but the guy is out of town till Monday. Is this kind of tear one that can be fixed with surgery? I've never heard of a longitudinal tear before. Is this common? My doctor didn't spend much time with me today so any further help/explanation you can give would be great.

Thanks,
Rese
