Regaining Full Function with Biceps Tenodesis Procedure

A ‘Popeye Sign’ usually appears when there is a rupture of the long head of the biceps from the Shoulder Joint. This generally causes a cosmetic deformity, which is painful in some cases. My patient had both, pain as well as cosmetic deformity and, therefore, I chose to perform Biceps Tenodesis on him. The surgery was a success and he regained full function afterwards.
