Özet

The long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT) generally runs free through its course in the glenohumeral joint. It can rarely be seen as attached to the joint capsule or the rotator cuff in different patterns. Although these variations are usually considered harmless in the literature, they may occur in conjunction with the labral pathologies. This study was designed to determine their prevalence and investigate their relationship with intra-articular pathologies encountered during arthroscopy.
