Abstract
PURPOSE
To report the usefulness of dynamic ultrasonography in subluxation of the long head of the biceps tendon, which is difficult to detect with static imaging such as plain radiography, static sonography, MRI and in a subtle physical examination. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two male patients suffered from subluxation of the long head of the biceps. This difficult diagnosis? was managed by surgery (biceps soft tissue tenodesis) with the aid of dynamic ultrasonography. At final follow up, we evaluated patients' symptoms and functional outcomes using KSS, UCLA and ASES scores.
RESULTS
We diagnosed and treated subluxation of the long head of the biceps easily using dynamic ultrasonography. At the final follow up, both patients' symptoms and functional outcomes were improved. There were no significant complications.
CONCLUSION
Dynamic ultrasonography is a useful method in the difficult and subtle diagnosis of subluxation of the long head of the biceps.
Key Words: Dynamic sonography; Biceps tendon subluxation; Biceps tenodesis
