Purpose: This study reports the clinical results of the tenodesis of long head of the Biceps brachii tendon with bioabsorbable interference screw by minimal open procedure. Materials and Methods: Ten cases of 10 patients (7 male, 3 female) were included in this study. The average age was 45.8 years old and the average period from the symptom onset to operation was 13.7 months. Average preoperative ASES score was 38.5. The causes of injury was; sports activities in 4 patients, unknown in 4 patients, industrial accident in 1 patient and traffic accident in 1 patient. The average follow up period was 12.1 months. Tenodesis with bioabsorbable interference screw by minimal open precedure was performed in all cases. Results: The ASES score improved to 87.5 at last follow up period and 6 cases had full range of motion of the shoulder. 4 cases had mild limited range of motion of the shoulder without any problem in normal daily activity. Conclusion: It was assumed that tenodesis of long head of the biceps brachii tendon with bioabsorbable interference screw by minimal open precedure was one of the good methods with good clinical results.
