Abstract
The Madelung deformity, which is a rery infrequently encountered defect, was detecte in 9 cases between the years 1961-1978, two of which were bilateral. The youngest of all these cases who were all girls was 12, the eldest being 17. The deformity was found to bemoderate in 2 of the cases but severe in the remaining. Out of our 11 Madelung deformites, Darrach procedure was adapted in 9, Darrach and radial osteotomy in 1, and ulnar shortening osteotomy in the remaining one. Good results were obtained in almost all of the cases in whom Dorrach procedure was performed.
