Analysis of Nonunion in Intramedullary Interlocking Nailing in Fracture Shaft of Femur

Dr. Om Prakash Kumar [3] | Dr. Sunny Kumar [4] | Dr. Umesh Prasad

Abstract: Introduction: The femur is essential for the lower extremities to support weight. 10 to 37 femur shaft fractures occur for every 100,000 patients. Femur shaft fractures frequently result from car accidents and falls from heights. The most common option for treating a femur shaft fracture is intramedullary nailing (IMN). Aim of Study: This study aim to analyse the fracture non-union in intramedullary interlocking nailing for fracture shaft of femur. Material and Methods: Prospective clinical studies were carried out in the orthopaedics department of NMCH Patna. Patients with fractured femur shafts were admitted from OPD and EMERGENCY between January 2021 and December 2022. Following routine investigation and emergency management, the femur's interlocking nail was done. Clinical examinations and radiological investigations are performed on patients at regular intervals of 3 weeks, 6 weeks, 12 weeks, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months. The incidence and management of nonunion were evaluated. The study provides valuable insights into the treatment outcomes of intramedullary interlocking nailing for femur shaft fractures.
