Ulna shortning bone heal failure

I had an ulna shortning and after being in plaster for 6 weeks, the bone had not fused.
I had to have the plate and screws replaced and my own bone graft inserted.
I've been told that if it doesn't mend it never will.
Nothing they can do.
Has anyone experienced the same.

I'm due to go back tomorrow(thurs) to see if all ok and have a 7 week old plaster removed.

Re: Ulna shortning bone heal failure

I think there was another poster on her a couple years ago who had a similar problem. You might try searching 'ulnar osteotomy' on the boards to see if you can find it.

I'm sorry to hear you are having such a bad time of it. I hope your appointment goes well tomorrow.
