|A new dynamic manoeuvre to differentiate complete vs. partial distal bicep tears at ultrasound|
|This poster is published under an open license. Please read the disclaimer for further details.|
This new maneuver is based in the transmission of movements from the radius to the biceps tendon during pronation/supination movements. It is useful to differentiate partial tears and tendonosis vs total ruptures without tendon retraction, without evaluating the zone where tendon inserts in the radius tuberosity.
It is necessary a bigger number of cases to evaluate it´s utility, and also in differentiating partial tendon tears of 50% or more from tendinosis, measuring the range of movement in relation to the vessel bundle and comparing it to the contralateral side.
