Twenty five patients of diaphyseal femur fractures were admitted and treated with AO femoral interlocking nail.
Osteosynthesis of diaphyseal fractures with the rod apparatus for external fixation is an alternative method for the primary fixation of fractures in patients with multiple and isolated injuries, as this operation is not long and not accompanied by traumatization of the soft tissues (Haliman and Vinogradov, 2008).
Soft tissue swelling and a hematoma, with red coloration indicating recent trauma, were noted on the right wing where a closed distal diaphyseal ulnar fracture was palpated.
Patients and Methods: Non-healing long bones diaphyseal fractures greater than 6 months were included with exclusion of pathological fractures, delayed union less than 6 months.
