Supracondylar corrective osteotomy for cubitus varus--the internal rotation component and its importance. An unique bone experiment.

Abstract

In 20 patients with cubitus varus, a clinical test suggested by Yamamoto et al (1985) was carried out to measure the internal rotation. Average internal rotation was found to be 37.5 +/- 9.390. A correction for internal rotation was carried out for all the patients having angle more than 20 degrees. Following osteotomy, post-operative Yamamoto's angle was… (More)
