A follow-up of 52 patients with a history of Darrach's procedure between 1961 and 1989 was carried out 16 years after surgery. 92% of those with trauma of the forearm, wrist, and distal radio-ulnar joint reported hardly any pain at all with marked improvement of forearm rotation and wrist mobility. The only drawback to surgery was an average strength loss of 50%.
