arthrodesis and pseudoarthrosis surgery for distal 1/3 humeral defect were planned approximately 45 days after the third operation.

joint," Journal of Orthopaedic Research, vol.
Preoperative carrying angle has been measured on anteroposterior radiograph using humeroulnar
angle (it is the line drawn along long axis of humerus and ulna).
It arises by two heads, a humeroulnar
head and a radial head.
The bone fragment was displaced laterally by the traction of the flexor muscles; however, dislocation of the humeroulnar
joint was not observed (Figure 1).
La articulacion cubital es de tipo sinovial compuesta, formada por las articulaciones humeroulnar
, humeroradial y radioulnar proximal (Budras, 2007; Adams, 2004; Sandoval, 1998).
Per operative reduction was checked by assessing humeroulnar
angle and range of motion.
Any form of hypermobility of the ulnar nerve requires a careful differential diagnosis in order to distinguish between dysplasia of the retrocondylar ulnar groove, snapping triceps syndrome, arcade of Struther, muscular anomalies at the medial elbow, distal humerus changes after trauma, and ulnar nerve compression by the humeroulnar
apponeurotic arcade joining 2 heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle.

The radiographic assessment was carried out after the sixth month by investigating the humeroulnar
angle and Baumann angle in AP view and, humerocapitellar angle in LAT view (Fig.2).
The elbow joint is opened anteriorly, and the capsule released circumferentially; the humeroulnar
and radiohumeral joints are then disarticulated.
It is thought that UNE mostly develops in the humeroulnar
arcade (HUA) and/or retroepicondylar groove (RTC) (8,10-12).
