Abstract: 

Materials & Methods: This was a retrospective case–control study of closed or type I open tibial diaphyseal fractures (types A and B according to the AO classification) treated with dynamic nailing (30 cases) or static nailing (30 cases). The type of intramedullary nail, the surgical technique and the postoperative protocol were similar for both groups, with the exception of the locking mode and the time of weight bearing. Time to union, mechanical and biological complications, and the number and type of re-operations needed until union were recorded and analysed.

Conclusions: Dynamic nailing assembly in intramedullary nailing in closed or type I open tibial diaphyseal fractures with limited comminution (types A and B according to the AO classification) is safe when used for these fracture types.
