Title: Functional outcome of distal femoral shaft fractures after fixation with tibial nails.

Biography

As an intern through all years of medical school , I have developed into an enthusiastic person, with great passion towards volunteering and public health promotion . Furthermore, I was an active organizer in many events and conferences at my university. In addition, I was the president of the media committee of the university medical student club.

Abstract

Objective: To assess the functional outcome and the time of healing in supracondylar femur fractures fixed with intramedullary tibial nail.

Methods:It was a randomized control trial study comprising of 25 patients with closed supracondylar femoral fractures operated with tibial intramedullary nail in Al Noor speciality hospital during a period of four years (2009-2013). The functional outcome was measured by Tegner Lysholm criteria during and after 4 years.

Results:

Out of 25 patients 20 were male and 5 were female. The mean time of healing was 15.80(2.646) weeks. 6(24%) patients showed excellent results, 12(48%) patients showed good results and 7(28%) patients showed fair results. There were no poor results in our study.

Conclusions:

Retrograde tibial nails are cheaper, convenient and comparable option for stabilizing the supracondylar fracture compared to standard retrograde femoral nails
