A majority of patients with superior labral anterior-posterior tears who underwent subpectoral biceps tenodesis were found to have positive clinical outcomes, according to recently published study findings.
Researchers retrospectively evaluated 28 patients who underwent subpectoral biceps tenodesis for a superior labral anterior-posterior (SLAP) tear and concomitant biceps tendonitis. American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) score, VAS, Simple Shoulder Test (SST), Constant, Single Assessment Numeric Evaluation (SANE) and SF-12 values were recorded. Mean follow-up was 2 years postoperatively.
