Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Triceps tendon rupture or avulsion is a rare tendon injury. The most common feature of injury is avulsion from osseous insertion on the olecranon. The diagnosis of acute triceps tendon rupture may be missed, and a missed diagnosis can result in prolonged disability and delayed operative management. In this article, we report 2 cases of neglected triceps tendon avulsion and a new V-Y-plasty surgical technique for repair.
