To evaluate the efficacy of distal femoral locking plate in treatment of distal femoral fractures.
Background: Distal femur fractures are one of the common fractures and constitute 1.6% of all fractures. Different treatment modalities with varying outcomes are seen in literature in the management of these fractures.
Materials & methods: The study was conducted in the department of orthopaedics at tertiary Institute of Punjab. Patients treated for distal femur fractures with ORIF using distal femoral locking compression plates were evaluated to assess their clinical and functional outcome and compared with the available literature.
Results: The mean time for union was less than 26 wks.
Conclusion: Surgery in the form of ORIF with distal femoral locking compression plate for Distal femur fracture is a comparatively good treatment option for better out come and early mobilization with minimum complications.
