Ulnar shortening osteotomy for ulnar impaction Essex-Lopresti syndrome
The Essex-Lopresti syndrome may develop after a proximal radial fracture such as a radial head fracture, excision of the radial head for fracture, or a displaced proximal radial shaft fracture. The Essex-Lopresti syndrome results when such a fracture, associated with disruption of the forearm interosseous membrane, allows proximal migration of the radius with secondary problems arising at the distal radial ulnar joint.
