Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Biceps tenodesis is a procedure where the long head of biceps tendon is sutured into the biciptal groove to allow healing of the tendon into the groove. This results in a permanent healing of the tendon into the groove. Total shoulder replacement takes 120 minutes whilst the biceps tenodesis takes 5 minutes.
Intervention code [1] 285604 0
Treatment: Surgery
Comparator / control treatment
Biceps tenotomy is a procedure where the long head of biceps tendon is divided in its intra-articular position and allowed to slide in the bicipital groove and scar in a self determined position. This procedure is permanent. Total shoulder replacement takes 120 minutes whilst biceps tenotomy takes 1 minute.

Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Subjects who are placed on waiting list for anatomic shoulder replacement at the participating hospital are eligible for enrollment. It will be discussed with patients at the initial clinic appointment then patients provided with information sheet. Confirmation of participation will occur at time of pre-admission. Randomisation will be performed by statistician and placed into sealed envelopes to be opened at the time of surgery.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Permuted block randomization via computer
Masking / blinding
Blinded (masking used)

Summary
Brief summary
This study aims to compare biceps tenodesis to biceps tenotomy during shoulder replacement surgery. The hypothesis is that biceps tenodesis gives improvement in shoulder pain and function post-shoulder replacement.
