Elbow heterotopic ossification after distal biceps tendon repair presenting as median nerve neuropathy: A case report

Heterotopic ossification of the elbow is a rare complication of distal biceps tendon repair operations. It may be entirely asymptomatic or present with symptoms and signs such as swelling, erythema, pain, palpable mass, vascular and nerve compression or joint movement restriction. We present a case of heterotopic ossification presenting as median nerve neuropathy after distal biceps tendon repair using a limited volar single incision.
