Definition

The long head of the biceps may rupture near to it's scapular origin in older patients, over the age of 50 years, following quite minimal trauma. Typically, the patient reports that they heard something "snap" in the shoulder whilst lifting. Often, the shoulder aches and the upper arm is bruised. Characteristically, flexion of the arm at the elbow produces a firm lump in the lower part of the arm - this is the unopposed contracted muscle belly of the biceps
