Distal Biceps Tendon Tear

Vocalizing his notions about Distal Biceps Tendon Tear Dr. Gupta says, “It is a condition that usually results out of an injury that may happen during heavy work or while lifting heavy objects. It is uncommon and contributes only three percent of the total biceps tendon tears. If you are apprehensive about how this injury takes place you just need to understand that while doing something strenuous with the arm you may suddenly feel a snap or pop in your elbow along with intense pain. The lower arm may also witness swelling and some bruising indicating the presence of distal biceps tendon tear.

Always remember that it has no other medical cause besides a sudden injury yet men who are above 30 and involved in heavy lifting jobs, are into smoking or have been taking corticosteroid medicines for long should stay precautious as they are more prone to being affected by the condition. It is not very difficult ascertaining that there has been a biceps tendon tear. It is easily identifiable with physical and diagnostic tests. Once identified it is essential to treat it within 2 to 3 weeks else chances of complications increase”, emphasizes Dr. Gupta.

Being designated as the head of Hand and Shoulder division at Max Healthcare Dr. Gupta has clear beliefs and treatment techniques to relieve patients. Speaking further on the topic he asserts, “If the condition is left untreated or managed with non -surgical techniques, the patients should mentally prepare themselves to lose at least 40 – 50% of the power of supination. Surgical excision on the other hand does have its advantages as it helps to restore the lost power of supination and also improves the cosmesis of the upper arms. If the patient does decide to go in for an operation, the sooner it is done the better are the chances of complete recovery. The patients should also be aware that the numbness and weakness affecting their forearm after surgery is temporary and would go away gradually.
