Depends. 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! Read more...
