Abstract

Shoulder pain is a common presentation of the dysfunction of the glenohumeral joint. The long head of the biceps tendon has been proposed as a source of pain in rotator cuff pathologies. The rotator cuff is a dynamic stabilizer of the glenohumeral joint, and its tear can create different shoulder dysfunctions. The long head of the biceps has a special intraarticular localisation, so the arthricular destruction affects its tendon too. In the process of the rotator cuff degeneration and tear the structure of the biceps tendon pathological transforms. With foregoing studies authors have demonstrated the feasibility of DSC in the investigation of the musculoskeletal system. The aim of this study was to establish the curves and the histological properties of the tendon of the long head of the biceps in different magnitudes of the rotator cuff tear on cadavers. The DSC results clearly proved that definitive differences are present between the structural state of the tendons in different magnitudes of the rotator cuff tears, which have also been demonstrated by the histological examination.
