Yergason’s Test

The Yergason’s test is used to assess for the ability of the transverse humeral ligament to hold the biceps tendon in the bicipital groove.

To perform this test, ask the patient to flex the elbow to 90 degrees and pronate the forearm.

Place the tips of two fingers on the biceps tendon over the region of the bicipital groove and with the other hand grasp the patient’s wrist and ask the patient to try to supinate their forearm against your resistance.

A positive test is one in which you can feel the biceps tendon “popping out” of the bicipital groove, indicating a torn transverse humeral ligament.
