The management of 51 comminuted fractures of the shaft of the femur, treated in Africa with limited facilities, is described. The majority were immobilised on. Introduction: Les fractures diaphysaires du fémur (FDF) de l’enfant sont fréquentes. Pour les enfants de 0 à 6 ans, le traitement est souvent orthopédique, avec.

None, Conflict of Interest: To study the effectiveness, advantages, disadvantages and failure rates of closed intramedullary interlocking nailing of daiphyseal fractures of the femur in adults.
A total of 30 cases of diaphyseal femur fractures in adults, who have been treated with closed intramedullary interlocking nailing were studied from – Data was analyzed both with regards to the clinical and radiological outcome to evaluate the effectiveness, functional outcome and morbidity associated with the procedure.
Femoral Shaft Fractures – Pediatric
Average age of the patient was Road traffic accidnents were the most common diaphhysaire of injury; middle third shaft fractures were most commonly seen The union rate was Five patients had superfi cial infection, four had shortening of limb, and in two cases union diaphysaie delayed. Excellent to good results were seen in Closed intramedullary interlocking nailing has now become the treatment of choice for closed diaphyseal fractures of femur in adults, especially those with high comminution, long spiral, and segmental fractures.
Interlocking nail offers the added advantages of early joint mobilization, early weight bearing, early muscle rehabilitation, shortened hospital stay, and most importantly diaphywaire return to work and prefracture state.
