Proximal ulnar osteotomy in the treatment of neglected childhood Monteggia lesion.

INTRODUCTION: The aim of our study was to analyze medium and long-term results of proximal ulnar osteotomy with and without ligament injury in neglected Monteggia injury in children.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: This retrospective, multicenter study included 28 patients. Clinical criteria concerned the range of motion, pain and MEPI score, and radiologic criteria comprised of Storen line, head-neck ratio, radial neck angle, and signs of osteoarthritic remodeling.

RESULTS: Twenty-eight patients were reviewed, at a mean 6 years' follow-up (range, 2-34y). Sixteen had proximal ulnar osteotomy without ligament reconstruction, and 12 had associated ligamentoplasty. Both groups showed significant clinical and radiological improvement, with no significant difference. Patients operated within less than 1 year had better clinical and radiographic results. There was no correlation between age at surgery and quality of results. The 5 patients who underwent condyloradial pinning showed early recurrence of dislocation and osteoarthritic remodeling. The three cases of Bado type-3 lesion had early recurrence of dislocation.

DISCUSSION: Proximal ulnar osteotomy gives good long-term results in Bado type-1 lesions, regardless of age, if performed before 1 year, in the absence of osteoarthritic remodeling. Associated ligamentoplasty does not seem to be useful.

LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: IV (retrospective).
