TARDY ULNAR NERVE PALSY PDF

Tardy ulnar nerve palsy is a chronic clinical condition characterized by a delayed onset ulnar neuropathy after an injury to the elbow. Typically, tardy ulnar nerve palsy occurs as a consequence of nonunion of pediatric lateral condyle fractures at the elbow, which eventually lead to a cubitus valgus deformity. While the child grows, the deformity worsens and the ulnar nerve is gradually stretched until classic symptoms of ulnar nerve neuropathy appear. The clinical assessment includes obtaining a complete history, physical examination, nerve conduction tests, and elbow imaging studies. Treatment consists of ulnar nerve decompression, with or without corrective osteotomy, with overall successful results usually achieved.

Tardy Ulnar Nerve Palsy

The report on compression neuropathy of the ulnar nerve at the elbow was first submitted by Panas in Therafter many authors have reported on etiology, pathoanatomy, method of treatment and prognosis of tardy ulnar nerve palsy. But there are some controversies about method of treatment and prognosis. We reviewed 15 patients of tardy ulnar nerve palsy resulted from the fracture of the lateral condyle of the humerus during the growing period. The result obtained are as follows. All 15 patients with tardy ulnar nerve palsy were resulted from non-union of lateral condyle and cubitus valgus deformity.

Ulnar Nerve Palsy (Dysfunction)

The type of neuritis which is the subject of this paper is peculiar, in that it develops many years after fractures and dislocations about the elbow joint. For this reason it has been termed "tardy" or "late" paralysis. Usually, the injury to the joint has been received in childhood, the first symptoms of ulnar neuritis making their appearance in adult life. Thus, an interval which may vary from six to thirty-five years elapses between the initial injury and the first symptoms of ulnar neuritis, which are then gradually progressive. This remarkably long latent period excludes the group of cases, not uncommon, in which secondary paralysis follows redundant callus formation, vicious union, or other mechanical complications of fracture which jeopardize the integrity of neighboring nerve structures. The curious, and at the same time characteristic, feature of the late paralysis is its appearance so long after reception of the original injury that.

Your ulnar nerve runs all the way from your shoulder to your little finger. The ulnar nerve manages the muscles that allow you to make fine movements with your fingers. It also controls some of the muscles of your forearm that allow you to grip things tightly. The ulnar nerve is what creates the shock-like sensation when you hit the funny bone in your elbow. You may lose sensation and have muscle weakness in your hand if you damage your ulnar nerve. This is known as ulnar nerve palsy or ulnar neuropathy. This condition can affect your ability to make fine movements and perform many routine tasks.
