Ulnar neuritis after open elbow arthrolysis combined with ulnar nerve subcutaneous transposition for post-traumatic elbow stiffness: outcome and risk factors.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Ulnar neuritis (UN) is a common complication of open elbow arthrolysis for elbow stiffness. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcome of subcutaneous anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve during open elbow arthrolysis and to describe the risk factors for UN. METHODS We retrospectively studied 260 patients with post-traumatic… (More)
