Abstract

We treated 20 patients with cubital tunnel syndrome by anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve with endoscopic assistance. Five elbows were classified preoperatively as McGowan's stage 1, 11 as stage 2 and four as stage 3. Excellent outcomes were obtained in nine and good in eight patients. Three patients had fair results. Improvement of symptoms occurred in all patients. There were no serious complications. All ulnar nerves remained anteriorly transposed.
