Brief Summary

The investigators aimed to compare two different forearm positions, extension-pronation (EP) or neutral, for fixation of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHB) in biceps tenodesis.

Detailed Description

Long head of biceps pathologies have been regarded as a source of anterior shoulder pain and disability. Tenodesis is preferable surgical choice for especially young patients to to eliminate anterior shoulder pain. The optimal position of the elbow and forearm during tenodesis is a debated topic. The investigators aimed to evaluate pain and strength loss after biceps tenodesis fixed at extension-pronation (EP) and neutral positions. The investigators aimed to find the most appropriate and anatomical arm position that gives better clinical and functional results.
