The mean age of the male patients was 59.
The procedures were performed between October 29, 2002, and September 30, 2008. R Bras Cir Mov.
RESULTS The study assessed 120 patients, of whom 31 were excluded in accordance with the exclusion criteria, thus totaling 89 patients. This mechanism characterizes a class three lever 20.
Three types of lever are known: Clinical results of arthroscopic tenotomy of the long head of the biceps brachii in full thickness tears of the rotator cuff without repair: A lever is basically a rigid rod fixed to a support point. Long tendon of the biceps brachii: Clin Orth Relat Res. Rev Bras Ortop. Comparative analysis on muscle strength among patients who underwent arthroscopic tenotomy of the long head of the biceps in relation to esthetic deformity.
December 13, 2011 The authors declare that there was no conflict of interest in conducting this work. We did not find any studies in the literature that investigated whether this particular feature would have the capacity to partially or fully maintain the muscle strength of the brachial biceps.
We thank Dr. The joint distension technique used consisted of application of physiological serum in suspension for the patients operated up to May 2007, and a joint pressure pump from that date onwards 17.
Orthop Clin North Am. Tenotomy of the LHB at the superior labrum of the glenoid makes an anatomical modification in which there is a change in the origin of the power force vector Figure 1 , and this may lead to changes in the muscle capacities peak torque of the groups involved 10,21.
Disorders of the long head of the biceps tendon. The method used was to measure the muscle strength in both upper limbs in accordance with the recommendations of the American Society of Exercise Physiology 19.
The patients who underwent arthroscopic tenotomy on the long head of the biceps with or without apparent clinical deformity from distal migration presented similar elbow flexion muscle strength. Rio de Janeiro: The variables studied were sex, age and the average from three consecutive measurements of elbow flexion strength in the operated upper limb and contralateral limb.
Arthroscopy 2005;21: The median elbow flexion strength among the patients with evident clinical deformity was 17. The application point of the resistance is in the hand, while the fulcrum is formed by the elbow resistance arm.
The 15 patients whose non-dominant side was operated were also excluded from the sample. Arthroscopic biceps tenodesis:
