Proximal forearm Radius, extraarticular, avulsion of bicipital tuberosity

General considerations

It’s unusual for a distal biceps avulsion to involve a substantial piece of bone. In any case, the treatment would focus on the distal biceps avulsion and the person’s motivation for strong supination. Fixation of the fragment is not as important as reattachment of the tendon.
