Incidence of distal end of femur fractures- 37 per 1,00,000 person. This study was taken up to assess the functional outcome for internal fixation of fractures of the distal end of femur by locking compression plate and to evaluate the effectiveness and complications of distal end of femur fractures treated with locking compression plate.
Material and Methods: It is a prospective study which was carried out from November 2013 to May 2015 in Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences, Bangalore.
