The biceps reflection pulley is a soft tissue sling that stabilizes the long head of the biceps tendon (LHB) before it enters the bicipital groove. Injuries to the biceps pulley and related instability of the LHB are common diagnoses in patients with anterior shoulder pain. This article summarizes the current concepts for treatment of injuries to the biceps pulley. Clinical and radiological presentation, arthroscopic assessment, and current treatment options are outlined.
