  Abstract :

Background- Cubitus varus causing a reduction or loss of carrying angle remains one of the commonest complication of supracondylar fractures. Despite the numerous ways are described of treating supracondylar fracture, cubitus varus remains a significant problem. It can only be prevented by achiving and maintaining accurate reduction. Cubitus varus deformity is not a functional problem, but it may become so disfiguring that correction is indicated.Methods-A total pf 10 cases of cubitus varus deformity were treated with modified French osteotomy outcome was measured with by the method of oppenhein WL.Conclusion- cubitus varus is the most common complication of supracondylar fracture of the humerus it is nearly always secondry to uncorrected or recurrent medial tilting of the distal fragment of the fracture.corrective supracondylar osteotomy is indicated only for children with unacceptable comesis. Modified French method proved safe and satisfactory as it has improved anatomy and cosmetic results. Loss of correction of cubitus varus deformity does not occur.
