Medial dislocation of long head biceps tendon is seen from bicipital groove. Biceps tendon is intact.
Supraspinatus, infraspinatus and subscapularis tendons are intact.
The finding of non visualization of long head biceps tendon in bicipital groove has two differentials:
- medial dislocation of intact tendon ( as in this case )
- complete tear of tendon
With medial dislocation of biceps tendon, subscapularis tendon deserves more attention to check its integrity.
