Abstract

Surgical repair has become a mainstay in the treatment of ruptures of the distal biceps tendon and multiple surgical techniques have been described advocating anatomic or near-anatomic repair. Fixation with an EndoButton technique has been shown to have superior fixation strength and durable clinical outcomes. Here, we describe a case of failed EndoButton fixation of the distal biceps tendon, and its successful treatment.
