Distal biceps tendon ruptures are thought to be secondary to an acute forceful eccentric load on a degenerative tendon. Nonoperative treatment following rupture leads to significantly decreased forearm supination and elbow flexion strength. There are several techniques described in the literature for repair. This article describes, with video illustration, distal biceps tendon repair using a double tension slide technique with 2 No. 2 high-tension nonabsorbable composite sutures.
