The authors describe two children who underwent surgical treatment of radioulnar synostosis. One case involved simple excision; the other, excision and interposition of Gore-Tex vascular graft material. In a review of the literature, no other report of the latter type of surgical treatment was found. A discussion of the literature concerning this rare complication in children and the current surgical treatment options are included.
