Comminuted and Rotationally Unstable Fractures of the Femur Treated with an Interlocking Nail
The Grossc-Kempf interlocking nail has expanded the indications for the use of closed intramedullary nailing in the treatment of complex fractures of the femur by allowing for immediate mobilization of the patient, early rehabilitation of the limb, and a shorter hospital stay.
Closed Intramedullary Nailing of Femoral Fractures
Intramedullary nailing was performed on 520 femoral fractures in 500 patients, which included eighty-six open fractures and 261 comminuted fractures, and the union rate was 99.1 per cent.
Comminuted fractures of the femoral shaft treated by intramedullary nailing.
It is believed that it is reasonable to perform an open reduction and cerclage wiring of grade III and grade IV comminuted femoral fractures to gain anatomic restoration in a young person.
Fractures of the proximal part of the femur.
The orthopaedic surgeon has a multitude of internal fixation devices and techniques available for use in the treatment of subtrochanteric fractures of the proximal femur that previously had to be treated with traction or extensive dissection and with (frequently inadequate) internal fixation.
The rationales of interlocking nailing of the femur, tibia, and humerus.

A review of the anatomy, biologic response to injury, and functional expectations of these 3 distinct long bones with respect to interlocking nailing compares to any inherent success of interlocking techniques.
Entry Point Soft Tissue Damage in Antegrade Femoral Nailing: A Cadaver Study
The nail entry portal at the piriformis fossa, although geometrically ideal and most recommended, causes the most significant damage to muscle and tendons as well as to the blood supply to the femoral head.
