Traumatic distal biceps brachii tendon injuries

...a classification based on ultrasound findings

Distal biceps brachii tendon (DBBT) injuries occur mainly in men aged 40–60 years. Traumatic DBBT injuries have been classified by De la Fuente et al. (2017).

2. Minor injuries: those that do not require surgical management.

a)  Low-grade partial tear: tendon disruption affecting less than or equal to 50% of the DBBT attachment; 

b)  Elongation injuries or tendinopathies: altered tendon pattern without signs of tearing.
