In this study, we examined adult patients with femur shaft fracture who treated with open-closed reduction and reamerized intramedullary nailing. Thus we aimed to evaluate clinical and radiological results of the adult patients and compare them with the studies in the literature. 42 extremities of 40 patients (35 male-5 female) who admitted to Yüzüncü Yıl University Faculty of Medicine, Department of Orthopeady and Traumatology with femur shaft fracture and were treated with locked intramedullary nail between 2009 and 2012 are included in this study. We aimed to evaluate early results of locked intramedullary nailing. In light of these evaluations we saw that our results were compatible with the literature. We believe that locked intramedullary nailing is one of the most successful methods in the treatment of femur shaft fractures.
