Two young adult (aged 25 and 21 years) patients presented with sarcomas of the proximal ulna. To achieve an oncological margin, the proximal ulna required resection. Owing to the complex biomechanics of the elbow joint, reconstructive options are limited and have a high complication rate. The elbow was reconstructed with a transposition of the radial neck to the trochlea of the humerus in both patients. At over 2 years of follow-up, both patients have a stable and functional elbow.
Transposition of the radial neck to the trochlea of the humerus provides a biological reconstruction in this complex problem.
