Contributors: Brian Walters, MD; Jeffrey R Dugas, MD; Jeffrey R Dugas, MD

We present a video demonstrating ulnar collateral ligament repair using internal brace augmentation. A case of acute ulnar collateral ligament tear in a young collegiate high level baseball pitcher is presented by the senior author. Aspects of clinical work-up including physical exam, radiologic findings, and indications for the procedure are discussed. A step-by-step narrative of operative footage is shown and a detailed description of the primary author's preferred physical therapy protocol with particular attention being given to aspects such as return to play, pitch, and competition. The video culminates with brief footage of the patient successfully pitching at four months postoperatively.
