DENVER — Patients with posterolateral rotatory instability who underwent lateral ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction experienced an improved level of function, according to results presented here.

“We found that, despite a moderate complication rate, [lateral ulnar collateral ligament] L-UCL reconstruction did reliably restore stability to the elbow and offers [a] functional resolution for patients with [posterolateral rotatory instability] PLRI allowing them to return to their preinjury level of function,” Marina Rodriguez, MD, said in her presentation at the Arthroscopy Association of North America Annual Meeting.
