Radial club-hand deformity. Long-term follow-up.
In 1970, the results of the treatment of fourteen patients with radial club hand were reported. Ten years later, we re-examined ten of these patients. There was little change in the measurements of ulnar bowing or ulnar length over the intervening decade, and the treated patients retained the cosmetic and functional improvement previously described. They also adapted satisfactorily to performing activities of daily living.
