Longitudonal split-type tear of the long head of biceps tendon up to the glenoid attachment associated with a tear of the subscapularis tendon and a typical Buford complex, i.e. deficiency of the anterior glenoid labrum and substituted by an enlarged middle gleno-humeral ligament. The superior labrum is also abnormal with increased T2 signal.
As well as rupture of the biceps brachii tendon, longitudonal splits of the tendon are well recognized albeit not common
