Dr. M. Madhusudhan Reddy [3] | Dr. P. Varun Kumar | Dr. K. Kalyan Kumar

Abstract: This prospective study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of titanium elastic nailing (TEN) in the management of paediatric long bone fractures. A total of 18 paediatric patients aged 6 - 12 years presenting with long bone fractures requiring surgical intervention were enrolled. Patients underwent titanium elastic nailing performed by experienced orthopaedic surgeons. Follow-up assessments were conducted at regular intervals for one year postoperatively. The primary outcome measure was time to radiographic fracture union. Secondary outcomes included complication rates, functional outcomes, and patient-reported satisfaction scores. The study demonstrated that titanium elastic nailing was an effective and safe treatment option for paediatric long-bone fractures, with favourable outcomes observed in terms of fracture union, complication rates, functional outcomes, and patient satisfaction.
