Abstract: Background and Objectives:
The fractures of the distal end of femur are one of the commonest fractures found and can be treated by different methods. 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. In this study period 25 cases of fracture od distal end of femur, meeting the inclusion and exclusion criteria were treated by open reduction and internal fixation using Locking Compression Plate.
