Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article details a 7- to 12-year follow-up of seven young male baseball players with osteochondritis dissecans of the capitellum that we treated using closed-wedge osteotomy. This procedure was established by Yoshizu in 1986 for the treatment of "Little League elbow." The bone of the capitellum was revascularized and remodeled within 6 months in all seven patients. Six of the patients were able to return to full athletic activity and continued to play baseball. Radiographic assessment during the follow-up study revealed minimal osteoarthritic change and suggests that the treatment is useful for such an injury.
