Abstract

Management of fractures has changed very much over the time. It has advanced from bamboo stick, POP to modern minimally invasive surgeries, to Robotic and distant operative techniques. In the modern world with the increase in speed and number of fast moving vehicles there is a great increase in number of RTA and number of polytrauma patients in causalities.  
The purpose of study is to achieve complete union with full functional ability of Limb as compared to earlier fixation method. New method of fixation of extra–articular distal one–third femur fracture i.e.: 1: 95° angled blade plate; 2: DCS; 3: Retrograde Nailing; 4: Distal Femur LCP Plating.

Keywords: Extra-articular, Distal one-third, Femur fracture fixation using, Retrograde femur nailing system
