Abstract: 

Introduction- Open reduction and internal fixation is the ‘Gold Standard’ treatment for the intra-articular distal femur fractures. Vehicular accidents and fall from height are common mode of injury. The goal of surgery is restoration of a stable limb for functional, pain free ambulation, maintaining anatomic alignment, length and preventing stiffness and to restore the function of the knee joint. Use of locking compression plate gives excellent functional outcome.

Results- Out of 20 patients, 3 excellent (15%), 8 good (40%). 5 fair (25%) and 4 (20%) poor results were obtained using ‘TEGNER LYSHOLM’ scoring system.
