Abstract

CASE: A 38-year-old weight lifter presented with a complete distal biceps rupture with retraction and a near complete ipsilateral distal triceps tear sustained during the bench press exercise. The tendons were fixed operatively using a simultaneous posterior and anterolateral approach to the elbow.

CONCLUSION: Simultaneous, ipsilateral distal biceps and distal triceps tendon injury is a rare occurrence that leads to significant functional loss. Repair of distal biceps rupture using a single-incision technique with a cortical button and distal triceps using a double-row suture anchor repair was successful in restoring functional anatomy to our patient.
