Lateral Decubitus Position for Arthroscopic Suprapectoral Biceps Tenodesis

The purpose of this report is to describe arthroscopic suprapectoral biceps tenodesis in the lateral decubitus position. Many technique descriptions for this procedure emphasize the beach-chair position to obtain optimal anterior subdeltoid visualization of the relevant anatomy. This is not required and may be less desirable or comfortable for a shoulder arthroscopist who prefers the lateral decubitus position. Therefore, the aim of this report is to show that the relevant anatomy may be readily and safely accessed, and the procedure effectively performed, in the lateral decubitus position.
