Abstract

Introduction: A complete tear of the proximal long head of biceps tendon is a rare clinical condition that is caused by direct or indirect trauma. We report the case of a patient with a proximal long-head biceps (PLHB) rupture diagnosed by bedside ultrasonography (BUS) and physical examination in the emergency department (ED).
