PMID: 35591898.


Patients with partial rupture of the distal biceps tendon can present with vague elbow pain and weakness. Understanding of the anatomy and aetiology of this disease is essential to management. Patients can present with a single or multiple traumatic events or with a chronic degenerative history. On clinical examination, patients will have an intact tendon making the diagnosis more challenging. Clinicians, therefore, should have a high index of suspicion and should actively look for this pathology.
