Could I have torn my rotator cuff at the same time as a distal bicep tendon rupture? I had surgery for the rupture,now need MRI for the shoulder

Unlikely

Mri
A ruptured biceps tendon@ the elbow is usually known... Eccentric contraction of the muscle w/ a feeling of a ' pop' or tear is commonplace. Rotator cuff tears occurring @ the same time is conceivable but very unlikely. More likely you had a RCT already and was 'picked up' by your ORS @ exam/MRI. The "long head" of the biceps in the shoulder can tear in chronic rot.cuff tears . GL!

Dr. Scott m Smith answered:

How long does a distal biceps tendon rupture take to heal?

5 months

Rupture
Distal biceps ruptures need to be repaired surgically. If done well, gentle range of motion exercises are begun early, using the arm gently for 3 months. At the 3 months Junction normal use without lifting or stress, if everything goes well, normal use and stressat five months.

What are signs of a proximal bicep tendon rupture?

Weakness

Hernias
Acutely pain and swelling with some bruising. Patient will have significant weakness of supination of the forearm and some loss of elbow flexion strength. You may see the biceps retract proximally and bunch up in the upper arm , especially with attempted use. This is a surgical problem see a hand surgeon as soon as possible.

I am assuming you had surgery, if this is the case be very careful because depending where you are in the healing process the exercises will be different. Speak to your surgeon.

Dr. Shawn Hennigan answered:

What is done about a 6 month old biceps tendon rupture?

Depends

Weight_training
If biceps torn proximal in shoulder, would leave alone. Shouldn't anticipate significant functional loss, but may have Popeye deformity. If distal, repair not likely. Reconstruction with some sort of interposition graft required. Many patients report improved pain with function, but does not correct deformity, and strength improvements less predictable. Tough problem to have. Good luck!

What can be done about a 6 month old biceps tendon rupture that I never sought out treatment for?

See an upper ex spec

Extremity
A six month old proximal bicep reptile can be ignored or fixed by an upper extremity specialist. The distal biceps rupture is a more difficult problem and you need to find someone who has performed tendon grafts.

What are rehab. exercices for a biceps tendon rupture?

Protection

Rehab
there are two tendons if one ruptures then you will have a weakness in that arm from now on. surgical replacement of the ruptured tendon is sometimes possible and you should see an orthopedic surgeon for this. gradually and slowly strengthing the remaining tendon with low weight exercises may help prevent its rupture in the future. always avoid lifting very heavy objects to prevent rupture
