AJSM Webinar Series - March 2021
Course Information
The American Journal of Sports Medicine is proud to announce the next installment in our journal webinar series.* This webinar will feature the article “Biceps Tenodesis for Superior Labrum Anterior-Posterior Tear in the Overhead Athlete.”  Moderator Xinning Li, MD, and author Gregory Cvetanovich, MD, will be joined by a panel consisting of Anthony Romeo, MD, Stephen O’Brien, MD, and Brian Werner, MD, to discuss treatment of SLAP lesions in overhead and non-overhead athletes. 

This program will help answer the following questions.  What is the outcome of SLAP repair in overhead and non-overhead athletes? The history and evolution of the biceps anchor labrum complex.  Who is considered an overhead athlete? Should biceps tenodesis be the primary surgery for overhead athletes with SLAP tears? If we do a biceps tenodesis, where should we put it (supra pectoral vs sub pectoral)?  Do nonoperative or biologics treatments work for SLAP tears?  Return to sports and post-operative rehab after SLAP tears with either repair or biceps tenodesis.  We will also answer questions from the audience regarding SLAP tears in athletes.
