Abstract
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical, functional, an d radiographic outcomes of the conventional and modified Boyd-Anderson procedures for repair of distal biceps tendon ruptures. Thirteen of 1 8 men who underwent surgical repair for unilateral distal biceps tendo n ruptures at one university center participated in the study. In gene ral, follow-up outcomes were favorable with respect to return to premo rbid activity levels, patient satisfaction with surgical outcome, and overall clinical results. Elbow flexion, forearm supination, and upper extremity functional concentric peak torque and range of motion resul ts were not significantly different between the surgical and nonsurgic al arms when dominance was controlled as a confounding factor. Radiogr aphic findings revealed no clinically remarkable signs of heterotopic ossification or proximal radioulnar synostosis. Results of the study r eveal that the conventional and modified Boyd-Anderson procedures are clinically, functionally, and radiographically efficacious for repair of distal biceps tendon ruptures.
