Orthopedist: Dr.Sawhney, Orthopedic Surgeon replied 2 years ago

Thanks for your reply.

In almost all the cases treatment is non surgical as there is minimal or no functional loss after biceps rupture.

Surgical treatment is considered only in people with high functional demand like athletes are labourers.

Surgical treatment of fresh ruptures could have been performed with minimal risk. Even now surgical treatment can be done but it would require greater dissection of tissue and may also need tendon grafting.

Feel free to ask any follow-up question.
