In most cases, anomalies including hypertelorism, epicantus, upward-slanting palpebral fissures, clinodactyly in the fifth finger, short nail folds, pes planus, joint laxity, dental problems and radioulnar synostosis
have been identified (4, 7).
In two cases of radioulnar posttraumatic synostosis, an excision of radioulnar synostosis
and interposition of cadaveric fascia lata graft was performed.
We encountered Complications like Superficial infection (2 Cases), Non-union in 1 Case, Transient Neuroprexia of posterior interosseous nerve in 2 Cases, loosening of screw in 1 case, Radioulnar synostosis
in 1 case (Table XV).
One patient developed a radioulnar synostosis
(Figure 3) and was reoperated on 9 months after the former surgery, leading to almost complete recovery of the forearm rotation.
The technique was later modified by Morrey and coworkers (25) in 1985 as there was a risk of radioulnar synostosis
involved with the ulnar stripping.

and Club Foot for Childhood Disability in India, Dr.
On the basis of the successful outcome in this case, surgical excision of the interdiaphyseal callus and interposition of a polypropylene mesh could be a viable option for management of posttraumatic radioulnar synostosis
in birds of prey.

13) All patients had a return of full strength, and there were no instances of radioulnar synostosis
or neurological injuries.
In our study there was no case of radioulnar synostosis
Although the two-incision technique decreased the risk of nerve injury, it led to an increase in radioulnar synostosis
, with subsequent loss of forearm rotation.
: One patients developed proximal radioulnar synostosis
and resulted in poor functional outcome.
