Abstract

Background: Fractures of the shaft of the femur are among the most common fractures resulting mostly from high energy trauma. Objectives: To study the functional outcome of closed intramedullary interlocking nailing in Gustillo-Anderson type I and II compound fractures of femoral shaft. Methodology: In this prospective study, 20 adult patients with Gustillo Anderson Class I and II fractures were included. After undergoing closed intramedullary interlocking nailing , the functional outcome was assessed using the Harris Hip score. Results and Conclusion: Excellent or good functional outcome as per Harris Hip score was observed in 80% cases while fair results were observed in 15% cases. One case with deep wound infection and non union showed poor outcome. Interlocked intramedullary nailing system showed excellent result in both close and open fractures.
