Abstract

The was study conducted in Department of Orthopedics of Index Medical College Hospital and Research Center, Indore, M.P. Patients with distal femoral cracks, conceded in the emergency clinic were dealt with utilizing different methods of inner obsession and followed up over a time of a half year to one year and their practical result assessed.

DCS group had highest number of non-union and deep infection rates; DFN group needed maximum number of secondary surgical procedures. The main disadvantage noticed in this study with locking plates is high fixation failure rates which can be minimized by proper technique and follow up. Further large scale, long term prospective studies are required to substantiate the pros and cons of locking plates in their use in the treatment of distal femoral fracture. 

Keywords: complications, modalities, femoral & fractures.
