Born with cubitus valgus. I have an angle over 20 degrees in both arms. What is the standard procedure to correct this? I am 19 yrs old. No injuries b4
Typically a humeral osteotomy but why do you want it corrected? Is it painful? Or does it cause ulnar nerve symptoms? If you have an indication (and even if you just don't like it cosmetically) you will need a full work up that will include advanced imaging and possibly nerve conduction/velocity studies.
If it's the ulnar nerve causing symptoms, a simple ulnar nerve transposition can help. ...Read more

Cubitus Valgus: When the elbow angle is such that the hand goes away from the body with the and facing forward as the arm is at the side, is not often corrected if it due to a boney injury. The late affect can be a so called tardy ulnar nerve palsy.

I have cubitus valgus in left hand as a result of old fracture, one month back I treated with ulnar nerve transposition, can I treat my elbow angel?
Cubitus valgus elbow: Angulation can place "tension" on the ulnar nerve and result in what is at times referred to as a tardy ulnar nerve palsy. Transposition is recommended to relieve that tension on the nerve. If the fracture is very old it is usually not wise to treat the deformity now especially after or with nerve surgery but of course its never an absolute, speak to your surgeon about your concerns. ...Read more

Can herbs cure acute renal failure? Is there any treatment for acute renal failure in herbal medicine?
The: The short answer here is no. There are many herbal remedies and treatments which have been shown to cause acute renal failure but none that reverse it. Be sure to distinguish acute (rapid in onset and usually with a known cause and therefore sometimes reversible though may require temporary dialysis) from chronic (kidneys damaged beyond repair leading to permanent dialysis). Acute renal failure has many causes; dehydration, trauma, medications, drugs, toxins, infection, and obstruction are some of the more common. Particularly when renal failure is due to toxins, medications, or dehydration, conservative therapy (time, hydration, avoiding nephrotoxins) is the best treatment. There is no quality data to support any herbal therapies for acute renal failure. There is also poor regulation over ingredients and effects of herbal therapies and many are nephrotoxic. Work closely with your doctor to stay hydrated and modify your diet if you are looking for more natural approaches. ...Read more

A doctor can check for signs of vitamin deficiency, lip eczema, or oral herpes. ...Read more
