If we know a normal finding during the ultrasound examination in
the longitudinal section, we are able to diagnose well some pathological states
which can occur in the area of the long head of the biceps and adjacent
Intratendinous pathological processes of a tendon
Luxation of the tendon
of the long head of the biceps – in this case
the sulcus of the long head of the biceps is empty, and the tendon moves (at
our patients we have seen only medial luxation) towards over m.
An empty sulcus and absence of the tendon is also possible at the total
rupture of the tendon of the long head of the biceps. With this findings we
have not met.
