<p class="abstract">Comminuted intra-articular fractures are very common in high energy traumas, conventional open reduction and plate fixation has been associated with many complications as they disturb the fracture biology and hence minimally invasive plating came into existence. We are reporting a 17 year old boy who met with road traffic accident sustained an AO type 33C2 injury to left femur with severe metaphyseal comminution treated by minimal invasive plate osteosynthesis technique who
