Isolated Complete Rupture of the Biceps Femoris Insertion: A Surgical Repair Technique Manuscript ARTHROSCOPY TECHNIQUES Todd Raines, B., Pomajzl, R. J., Ray, T. E., Bley, J. A., Sherman, S. L. 2019; 8 (4): E407–E411


Isolated rupture of the distal biceps femoris insertion is rare. Current literature offers limited case reports and outcome measures after surgical management. We describe a knotless suture anchor fixation technique for this tear pattern. At surgery, the retracted biceps tendon and insertion site is debrided to healthy tissue, FiberTape suture (Arthrex) is passed in a Kracków fashion through the tendon, and the 2 ends of the suture are brought down to a SwiveLock anchor (Arthrex) at the anatomic insertion. FiberWire sutures (Arthrex) from the anchor are brought over the remnant stump, completing the repair.
