There is complete tear of the distal biceps tendon with associated edema and blood products filling it's expected course, and with 10.7 cm of proximal retraction. There is associated injury to the lacertus fibrosus. Edema is also observed tracking along the median neurovascular bundles and brachial vessels.
Typical example of a complete distal biceps tendon tear. The distal biceps tendon is the most common tendon of the elbow to completely rupture, but represents only 3% of biceps tendon tears.
