long headed repair can it be fixed twice will the bicept all ways look it has a dent in even after operation thanks
How are you? The biceps tendon is the structure that connects the biceps muscle to the bone. There is a proximal biceps tendon at the shoulder joint, and a distal biceps tendon at the elbow. When the biceps tendon ruptures, this tendon is detached. Following a biceps tendon rupture, the muscle cannot pull on the bone, and certain movements may be weakened and painful. There are two types of biceps tendon ruptures: Proximal type is the most common type of biceps tendon injury. It is most common in patients over 60 years of age, and often causes minimal symptoms. The distal biceps tendon is injured around the elbow joint. This is usually an injury that occurs with heavy lifting or sports in middle-aged men. Most patients with a distal biceps rupture will have surgery to repair the torn tendon.
I think in your case it is the distal biceps rupture. Most patients will experience benefit if the biceps tendon is repaired surgically. If the tear is incomplete, or if the patient is very low-demand (not active), then surgery may not be needed. However, most patients who want more normal use of their arm will benefit from surgery to repair the ruptured tendon to the bone. So, you can resume to your normal activity after surgical repair.
I would suggest that you visit a orthopaedician, for further assistance.
