Limb length discrepancy < 1cm was seen in 1 patient and no angular deformities and there was migration of the nail in 2 and mild soft tissue infection in 4 patients. CONCLUSION Enders nailing still appears to be simple, easy and effective method for paediatric long bone fractures, has a Lead sharing internal splint, Early mobilization possible Maintains length and alignment without endangering blood supply to epiphysis with minimal complications and cost
