Biceps and triceps tendon ruptures are rare injuries seen around the elbow. Eccentric contraction of the tendon against resistance plays a role in the mechanism of injury. Since they can cause serious injuries in athletes, they should be well evaluated and treated. Surgical treatment comes to the fore in the treatment of these injuries in athletes. With the development of current fixation materials, there are innovations in surgical techniques.
