The purpose of this study is to evaluate the outcomes our plate-and-bone-strut-allograft technique with bone chip augmentation in the management of olecranon aseptic non-unions. We included 22 patients with distal third humeral non-unions. Full bone healing without complications was achieved in all 22 patients. The average period of union was 94.48 days. After healing the alignment was perfect in 16 cases, a valgus deformation remained in 4 cases, and a varus deformation remained in 2 cases. Given the excellent postoperative results in full bone healing, the recovery of the range of motion, and the lack of major complications seen in this study, we find that LCP plating with supporting allograft and equine is a good choice of treatment in the cases of non-union in the olecranon non-union surgical revision.
