Distal biceps tendon ruptures are a result of an eccentric load onto a flexed elbow and can lead to loss of flexion and supination strength. Surgical treatment is a well-accepted treatment that can improve flexion and supination strength, however, can be associated with a number of surgical complications. The case presented here describes a vascular injury sustained during a distal biceps tendon repair. The manuscript provides a background on distal biceps tendon ruptures, treatment options, and the complications associations with a tendon repair. The vascular complication described occurred during a tendon repair and highlights a number of surgical pearls that can help prevent a complication.
