Biceps pulley

Last revised by Dr Henry Knipe on 22 Nov 2019

The biceps pulley is a capsuloligamentous complex that stabilizes the long head of biceps tendon within the bicipital groove. It comprises the coracohumeral ligament, superior glenohumeral ligament, and distal attachment of the subscapularis tendon. It is located within the rotator interval between the anterior edge of the supraspinatus tendon and the superior edge of the subscapularis tendon.
