A biceps tear is a partial or complete tear of the biceps tendon. Injuries to the biceps muscle and tendon are fairly common. The biceps (biceps brachii) is made up of two different muscle bundles in the upper arm between the shoulder and elbow. It is a tri-articulate muscle, meaning it works across 3 joints.
The biceps tendon attaches muscles to the shoulder in two separate places, helping to bend the elbow and rotate the forearm. A strained biceps is the result of a tear in the biceps tendon. A tear can occur when a person’s arm absorbs a large amount of force (such as breaking a fall) or during a forceful pushing motion. Overuse of the muscle can also result in biceps tendon injuries.
90% of biceps tear injuries occur near the shoulder (vs near the elbow). Any sport that places a high load on the shoulder has a higher risk of biceps injury, such as weight lifting, football, gymnastics, tennis, and wrestling.
Symptoms of a biceps tear may include:
The treatment and healing time for a biceps tear depends on the type of tear experience. A partial tear usually heals within 3-6 weeks, while a full tear requires surgery and may take 4-6 months for recovery.
Tendon injuries such as a biceps tear are traditionally slow to heal themselves. Mild injuries that have not damaged more critical structures (such as the rotator cuff) may be treated with nonsurgical methods. Ice, rest, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (ibuprofen, naproxen), and physical therapy may be sufficient to treat the injury.Patients that continue to experience symptoms from a partial biceps tear after nonsurgical treatments have been exhausted may be referred for surgery.
Surgical treatment involves a procedure to re-anchor the tendon back to the bone. Complications are rare, and re-rupture (repeat tear) is uncommon.

Wal-Mart Stores on Monday said it has completed the acquisition of internet retailer Jet.com after agreeing to pay about $3 billion for the e-commerce startup last month.
Wal-Mart Chief Executive Doug McMillon announced the closing of the deal, which was pending regulatory approval, in a blog post on the retailer’s website.
The acquisition will impact Wal-Mart’s 2017 fiscal year earnings marginally more than the retailer’s initial estimate of a 5 cents per share impact as the transaction closed ahead of time, Wal-Mart said.
The deal, which was the largest for an online startup, will give Wal-Mart

“A lot of folks ask me ‘Why Jet.com?,” McMillon said in a blog post. The answer he said was in the savings both Wal-Mart and Jet can together offer shoppers.
Jet, with its ability to lower prices as customers add more items to their shopping carts, will help the world’s largest retailer reach more customers such as millennial shoppers. The deal would also strengthen Wal-Mart’s existing e-commerce infrastructure, McMillon said.

Wal-Mart has built its website into the second largest online retailer by traffic in the U.S. in the past six months, the blog post said. It has also expanded the assortment of products on its website from 7 million to 15 million items and is adding a million more each month.
Jet’s founder Marc Lore will join Wal-Mart as the President and Chief Executive of Wal-Mart’s U.S. ecommerce business and will report to McMillon, the company said in a separate statement.
“I’ll be spending a lot of time with the team in the coming weeks and months focused on scaling Walmart.com and Jet.com,” Lore said.

Over a five-year period Lore will receive stock units that involve the issuance of 3.55 million shares of Wal-Mart’s common stock valued at 10 cents per share, the statement said. This is a part of the $300 million of Wal-Mart shares that would be paid over time as part of the original transaction.
