Torn Bicep Muscle
I have a torn bicep muscle in my right hand for the last 2 year's can this be operated and can my arm be normal as before? What are the risks?
Depends: Depends on if it's distal or proximal. If distal, and the laceratus fibrosis is still intact, there is a remote chance that it may work, but likely not. If it's complete with torn laceratus with retraction, you can tenodese (tie down the tendon) to the brachialis muscle, but this is purely cosmetic and essentially 50/50 chance that will work. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
Needs to be fixed: An orthopedic surgeon (seen at his office or through the er) can evaluate and decide how to fix it. He may need to operate to reconnect the broken tendon in order for the biceps to work again. ...Read more
Can be hard to tell: The biceps muscle has 2 tendons, one that runs in the shoulder joint (proximal) and one that goes across the elbow joint(distal). Both muscle and tendon tears are painful initially. Muscle tears hurt more in the middle of the arm. The tendon tears tendon to feel better faster, but strength and range of motion are limited. These injuries are best evaluated by a board certified orthopaedic surgeon. ...Read more

Several reasons: There are several reasons why this can happen. The most important is do you have a pinched nerve in your neck. If the nerve is pinched it cannot send signals to the muscle and it will not increase in strength.

There's a little hole like a dent on my ight bicep. It came recently and I havent worked out in a while, Is my muscle deflating?
Not deflating...: There is no "stored air" in the muscle to either inflate or deflate. You may have had a partial tear of the muscle belly at that point. See a doctor if you are concerned or if it is painful. ...Read more

Possibly: It's relatively rare to "pull" the biceps muscle. Strains or tears of the biceps tendons are more likely. The biceps tendons may be injured near the shoulder or near the attachment just past the elbow. The distal tendon injury (past the elbow) often needs urgent evaluation with an orthopedic specialist because surgery is often required to restore adequate strength with turning the forearm. ...Read more
