Rupture of the Biceps Tendon at the Elbow
The biceps muscle attaches to the radial tuberosity, which is a small hump on the side of one of the two bones of the forearm (the radius) near the elbow joint. The biceps muscle bends the elbow bringing the hand in towards the body. This muscle also helps to twist the forearm, turning the palm of your hand downwards, the motion you would use by putting a light bulb in.
- Swelling in the front of the elbow
- Weakness bending the elbow
- Weakness when twisting the forearm against resistance (light bulb motion)
- Visible bruising.
When the tendon disconnects, there is a sensation or may be the sound of a ‘pop’ in the elbow. Some swelling in the front of the elbow is normal. Then weakness appears when bending the elbow. The biceps muscle and tendon can recoil and shorten, creating a swelling in the upper arm.
