  • Lacertus fibrosus augmentation for distal biceps brachii rupture repair: surgical technique. [Journal Article]
    Musculoskelet Surg 2016; 100(Suppl 1):85-88Fontana M, Trimarchi A, Colozza A
  • CONCLUSIONS: With this study we want to present our experience in the treatment of retracted distal biceps tendon tear with lacertus fibrosus augmentation. Our surgical technique is an effective and cheap option for chronic-retracted distal biceps tendon lesions. Recovery time is quicker, and integration is faster due to the use of an autologous vascularized graft. Preoperative ultrasound scan is mandatory in order to evaluate LF integrity, thickness and size.
  • Role of pronator release in revision carpal tunnel surgery. [Journal Article]
    SICOT J 2016; 2:9Luangjarmekorn P, Tsai TM, … Kitidumrongsook P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intraoperative findings from our study confirmed that there were pathology in both carpal tunnel and pronator area in failed primary CTR with suspected PTS. Our study showed that combined PTR with revision CTR provided higher chance of completely recovery from numbness and pain more than redo CTR alone.
  • Distal biceps repair using the lacertus fibrosus as a local graft. [Journal Article]
    J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2016; 25(7):1189-94Caputo AE, Cusano A, … Hamer MJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: When operative treatment is chosen for biceps tendon injuries and if the lacertus fibrosus is intact, transfer of the lacertus to augment repair of the distal biceps provides predictable outcomes without the potential complications associated with allograft or autograft tendon reconstruction.
  • Brachialis syndrome: a rare consequence of patient positioning causing postoperative median neuropathy. [Journal Article]
    J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2016; 25(5):797-801Koehler SM, Meier KM, … Hausman MR
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the first description of the brachialis syndrome. During surgery, arms were placed into full extension, compressing the brachialis against the trochlea. The brachialis reliably developed necrosis, resulting in swelling, compressing the median nerve against the lacertus fibrosus. Two patients with delayed decompression had poor neurologic outcomes. This supports modification of patient positioning, postoperative vigilance, and timely surgical management of brachialis syndrome.
  • The Supination-Pronation Test for Distal Biceps Tendon Rupture. [Journal Article]
    Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ) 2015; 44(10):E361-4Metzman LS, Tivener KA
  • Prompt diagnosis of a distal biceps tendon complete rupture increases the ability to perform a primary repair and to restore motion and strength. When examining an acute injury, it is important to isolate the biceps brachii tendon from the lacertus fibrosus and the brachialis because the examiner may mistakenly miss a distal tendon rupture by not isolating supination and pronation. The supination…
