Patients with OCD lesions, UCL injuries had greater varus, valgus angles vs patients with uninjured elbows

June 13, 2017

Recently published results showed a greater varus carrying angle and larger valgus, distal humeral articular surface angle among patients with osteochondritis dissecans lesions and ulnar collateral ligament injuries compared to patients with normal elbows.

Based on MRI, researchers identified 19 pediatric patients with isolated osteochondritis dissecans defects of the capitellum; eight pediatric patients with isolated ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) complete tears; and 16 pediatric patients with normal elbows. Researchers reviewed radiographic measurements, including carrying angle, distal humeral articular surface angle and radial neck-shaft angle, from corresponding anterior-posterior elbow radiographs, and measured anterior angulation of the articular surface of distal humerus on the lateral radiographs.
