It brings pain and weakness to patients.[1] There are three major considerations in treating this disease: central bone stability, lateral ligament stability, and medial ligament stability.[2] The medial ligament includes the anterior, posterior, and transverse bundles.[3] Its injury usually results from a valgus force and leads to medial instability, heterotopic ossification (HO) formation, and reduced elbow performance score, especially in elbow stiffness.[4] Worse still, the persistent instable state eventually causes ulnar nerve irritation and irreversible motor and sensory loss.[5] Therefore, it is very important and urgent to restore normal medial collateral ligament (MCL) structure and elbow stability.
