bicipital bursa
lies between the tendon of the biceps brachii muscle and the bicipital groove of the humerus. See also intertuberal bursa.
bicipital bursitis
inflammation of the bicipital bursa over the point of the shoulder where the tendon of the biceps bends over the humerus. Usually follows trauma and is characterized by a reduced stride, circumduction and dropped elbow. Forced extension of the limb and deep palpation of the joint causes pain.
bicipital tendon
tendon of the biceps muscle.
bicipital tenosynovitis
inflammation of the bicipital tendon and its sheath; characterized by shoulder lameness and sometimes calcification of the tendon and osteophytes in the intertubercular groove are observed on x-rays.
