Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report our experience with reversed dynamic slings used in the treatment of post-traumatic flexion contractures of the elbow. There were 21 patients treated for deformities ranging from 35 degrees to 70 degrees (average 55 degrees). The flexion deformity after treatment varied from 25 degrees to 45 degrees (average 34.8 degrees), giving an average increase in range of movement of 39.1 per cent.
