Pathophysiology

Multiple classification schemes have been developed to describe disorders of the LHB tendon. These divisions have been only marginally useful in regards to diagnosis and treatment decisions. More important is to understand the various pathological processes involving the biceps tendon and how to treat each process accordingly. The three biceps tendon pathologies that we will discuss are biceps tendinitis, rupture, and instability. Lesions involving the biceps origin (SLAP lesions) will be discussed in greater detail elsewhere.
