Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.
So the subscapularis lies under the long head of the biceps and when it ruptures or tears along with dislocation of the long head of the biceps the surgeon has to do a tenodesis of the long head of the biceps tendon. The surgeon does this to relocate the long head in to its original position after the sunscapularis is repaired. So, the surgeon is not going to cut the biceps tendon or make it dysfunctional. At the end of the surgery the surgeon will put everything back together again like it is supposed to be. Again, tenodesis means to strengthen a dislocated tendon. It involves putting sutures through it and may involve cutting but only to fix it later on. It is a necessary step for subscapularis repair.
Hope this helps.
