AANA19 ICL-303: SLAP, Biceps, or Both: How to Manage this Difficult Problem in our Overhead Athletes
Registration

ICL Description
The goal of the ICL will be to discuss all aspects of biceps and labral pathology in overhead athletes. The course will begin with a brief overview including anatomy and function of the biceps/labral complex as well as the epidemiology of these injuries in overhead athletes. Next, we will educate the audience on critical aspects of the athlete's pain and throwing history including onset of symptoms and when the symptoms occur in the throwing cycle. Physical exam maneuvers specific to the biceps/labral compels and a thorough overview of diagnostic imaging will be reviewed. Various treatment options will then be discussed, including non-operative and operative options. Specific non-operative treatments including specific rehabilitation programs, ultrasound guided injections, biologics, and a return to throwing program will be discussed. Surgical treatment options including SLAP repair, biceps tenodesis (open and arthroscopic) and others such as the biceps transfer will be reviewed. Surgical videos demonstrating our techniques will be shown. Current evidence surrounding the treatment outcomes for both non-operative and operative treatment will be presented so the audience has the most up-to-date knowledge of the literature. Finally we will discuss our treatment algorithm for these athletes and how we manage this difficult problem. We will discuss how we approach these athletes, including discussions with their coaches, parents, etc. and will provide the audience with a reliable, evidence based treatment algorithm for managing biceps and labral pathology in their overhead athlete patient population. Throughout the lectures we will include specific cases to better illustrate our points to the audience. We will also have a panel discussion at the end of difficult cases, and how we managed each specific case.
Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this educational activity participants will be able to:
  1. Accurately diagnose biceps and superior labral pathology in overhead athletes using a thorough history, physical exam, and imaging findings
  2. Understand the non-surgical and surgical treatment options including SLAP repair, biceps tenodesis (open and arthroscopic) and others (including biceps transfer) as well at clinical outcomes for each treatment option for overhead athletes who are diagnose
  3. Develop a reliable, evidence based treatment algorithm for managing biceps and labral pathology in the overhead athlete
