OBJECTIVE: Ulnar shortening for ulnocarpal unloading using a new device enabling parallel osteotomy, rotation-secured compressive shortening, lag screw placement and hybrid stabilization combined in a solely locking plate construct. INDICATIONS: Idiopathic ulnar impaction syndrome. Posttraumatic radial shortening without major tilting of the radius in the sagittal or frontal plane, rotation deformity and/or translation of the distal fragment. CONTRAINDICATIONS: Advanced arthritis of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ), DRUJ type III according to Tolat, malunion of the distal radius with major tilting of the radius in the sagittal or frontal plane, rotation deformity and/or translation of the distal fragment...

We analysed the operative technique, morbidity and functional outcome of osteotomy and plate fixation for malunited fractures of the forearm sustained in childhood. A total of 20 consecutive patients underwent corrective osteotomy of 21 malunited fractures at a mean age of 12 years (4 to 25). The mean time between the injury and the osteotomy was 30 months (2 to 140). After removal of the plate, one patient suffered transient dysaesthesia of the superficial radial nerve. The mean gain in the range of movement was 85 degrees (20 degrees to 140 degrees )...

BACKGROUND: Idiopathic ulnar impaction syndrome can be defined as a degenerative condition of the ulnar aspect of the wrist in patients with congenital or dynamic positive ulnar variance without a history of fracture or premature physeal arrest. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical features of idiopathic ulnar impaction syndrome and the outcomes of ulnar shortening osteotomy for this group of patients. METHODS: Thirty-one wrists in twenty-nine patients with idiopathic ulnar impaction syndrome were treated with an ulnar shortening osteotomy...
