Distal Femoral Fracture


Fractures involving joints and about the joints provide complex problems with small comminuted fractures, surrounding soft tissue injuries and articular cartilage damage. Various problems are also encountered on the weight bearing surface, especially on the convex side of the distal Femur. Even though many auther had recommended kinds of management upto now, operative methods are more suggested in order to get good results regarding with the accurate anatomical reduction, rigid internal fixation and early joint motion. The clinical analysis of rnanagements of 20 cases of distai femoral fracture demonstrate that seperate dual incision-bilateral or right angle plane-to originate fracture site, and anatomical reduction & rigid internal fixation, early non-weight bearing ROM exercise of joint were sometimes mandatory to treat the displaced, comminuted fracture.
