We investigated the relationships of ulnar varus deformity and the degree of cubitus varus according to the age at injury in patients with cubitus varus.
The degree of ulnar varus correlated well with the degree of cubitus varus. A straighter ulna at the time of injury could become more bowed if cubitus varus deformity occurred and progressed. This may be evidence suggesting that the earlier correction of cubitus varus would be more effective under a less deformed varus of the ulna.
