Abstract

The authors report on 30 fractures of the femur and tibia treated with the Grosse-Kempf locked nail in patients aged more than 60 years. Neither nonunion nor severe complications were observed; surgical trauma was well sustained. Functional results were particularly satisfactory; most patients began walking within the first week after fixation.
