Background: The ulna is one of the most important bones of the upper limb. The fractures of the olecranon process of this bone are very common. At the same time, characterizing the Proximal Ulna Dorsal Angulation (PUDA) is on a high level of importance and if it remains untreated, it results in functional problems in the elbow in the future. Therefore, the purpose study was conducted to determine the PUDA and Tip to apex distance (Tad) in patients referred to hospitals located in Tehran in 19-2018. 
Methods: In the current descriptive study, we used 120 bilateral lateral elbow radiographs to evaluate two variables, PUDA, and (Tad). SPSS was used for statistical analyses with the significance level set at 0.05. 
Results: Participants’ average age was 10.83 ± 33. Also, the PUDA was 1.65 ± 5.65 ° and the (Tad) was 52.54 11.23 ± mm. Data analyses showed that there was no significant PUDA difference between the two sexes and independently in each sex (p <0.25). There was also no significant difference in the (Tad) between sexes and independently in each sex (p <0.5).
Conclusion: The two variables of angulation and distance seem to be valuable clinical signs for orthopedic surgeons that can help them choose the appropriate platinum for surgery and malformations
