A type II SLAP tear in a young and active patient remains a controversial and challenging clinical entity. Arthroscopic repair is generally a successful procedure for type II SLAP lesions, but the results can be unpredictable. Biceps tenodesis has become increasingly popular for the management of these lesions, with recent clinical literature suggesting that the results may be equivalent or superior to those of SLAP repair. Recent meta-analyses have summarized the available clinical data and offered some guidance on which patients may benefit most from either procedure.
