Comparative study between minimal medial epicondylectomy and anterior subcutaneous transposition of the ulnar nerve for cubital tunnel syndrome.

The purpose of this study was to review the results of 2 surgical methods for treating cubital tunnel syndrome. From 1994 to 2001, minimal medial epicondylectomy was performed on 22 elbows, and anterior subcutaneous transposition of the ulnar nerve was done on 34 elbows. In the group treated by medial epicondylectomy, 9 of the results (41%) were excellent, 10 (45%) were good, 2 (9%) were fair, and 1 result (5%) was poor. In the group treated by anterior subcutaneous transposition of ulnar nerve, 14 of the results (41%) were excellent, 13 (38%) were good, 6 (18%) were fair, and 1 result (3%) was poor. No significant difference was found between the 2 groups (P < .05). Both methods can be used for the treatment of cubital tunnel syndrome with a high rate of satisfaction.
