Surgical treatment of distal femur fractures using locking compression plate

2018 Indian Journal of Orthopaedics Surgery  
Distal femur fractures have been a challenge to the orthopaedic fraternity for long time. Improvement in implant material and design are expected to fetch better results in due course of time. Advent and use of locking compression plate has shown good results but requires more corroborative evidence to advocate its uses in different morphology of distal femur fracture. The present study was undertaken to evaluate clinical, radiological union and the complications associated with locking compression plate.
