Biceps tenodesis is a commonly employed surgical intervention for refractory symptoms related to the biceps-labral complex, those intra-articular and those within the extra-articular bicipital tunnel. While a litany of surgical techniques exists, the optimal method for ensuring an anatomic length-tension relationship during tenodesis remains elusive. Appropriate tensioning may limit undesirable outcomes such as cramping or cosmetic deformity. We describe herein our technique as a simple and efficient means to establish patient-specific, anatomic tensioning of the long head of the biceps during tenodesis.
