Abstract: Condylocephalic nailing in intertrochanteric fractures was very popular in the past because it has advantages like short operative procedure, minimally traumatic, little blood loss, negligible risk of infection and risk of delayed union or non-union is also reduced. However due to complications such as irritation at the knee, decreased range of knee motion, distal and proximal migration of nails, their use has decreased recently. We feel that it was not the implant`s fault which led to the complications, but it was the surgeon`s fault who did not do it properly. So we conducted this study to see if the ender`s nail done properly in the intertrochanteric fracture can give good results or not. Our conclusion was that it significantly reduces the operative time and blood loss and also giving wonderful functional results to the patients in terms of union and decreased risk of complications.
