Staple fixation of osteotomy for cubitus varus. A simple technique used in 11 children.

Abstract

Eleven children with a persistent varus deformity of 15 degrees or more were operated on with a supracondylar lateral closing-wedge osteotomy. The osteotomy was stabilized with a staple after predrilling for the legs of the staple. No displacement occurred in the osteotomy. The results were excellent in all the cases.
