Abstract

State of paper's purpose. The femoral diaphyseal fractures are one of the most frequent and serious traumatic disorders encountered in orthopedic practice which can lead to severe squeals if not managed correctly. This study analyzes the femoral diaphyseal fractures surgically treated in two large trauma centers from Bucharest during 5 years. We assessed the treatment methods, the associated lesions and the most frequent complications. The most frequent late complication found in our series of patients was the nonunion, which accounted for 14,7% of the cases. Considering the frequency and the severity of this complication the study tried to elaborate a treatment algorithm and a new classification for the nonunions and to evaluate the results of the surgical treatment of femoral diaphyseal nonunions.
 
Key words:

femoral diaphyseal fracture, internal fixation, complications, nonunion
