Abstract

Correction of a rigid forearm deformity in children is often desired in congenital radioulnar synostosis, brachial plexus palsy, cerebral palsy, or posttraumatic torsional deformity. Osteotomies at the diaphyseal level present difficulties with maintenance of reduction, whether or not internal or pin fixation is used. The stabilizing and healing potential of the periosteum in these cases can be used to advantage in the correction of these deformities.
