OBERHOLZER, Pieter J.. Complete rupture of the long head of the biceps tendon and the distal biceps tendon. S. Afr. J. radiol. (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.2, pp.1-3. ISSN 2078-6778. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/sajr.v18i2.710.
The most common injury to the biceps muscle is rupture of the long head of the biceps tendon. A tear can occur proximally, distally or at the musculotendinous junction. Two cases are discussed, in both of which the patients felt a sudden sharp pain in the upper arm, at the shoulder and elbow respectively, and presented with a biceps muscle bump (Popeye deformity).
