Biomechanical Comparison of Ulnar Collateral Ligament Repair With Internal Bracing Versus Modified Jobe Reconstruction (2015)

Abstract: Background: The number of throwing athletes with ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injuries has increased recently, with a seemingly exponential increase of such injuries in adolescents. In cases of acute proximal or distal UCL insertion injuries or in partialthickness injuries that do not respond to nonoperative management, UCL repair and augmentation rather than reconstruction may be a viable option…..
