Abstract

Distal femoral fracture with or without comminution or intra-articular extension, have always been a challenge to treat. In the elderly, where the bones are osteoporotic, hardware failure is a problem. This prospective study analyses the functional outcome of 25 cases treated with locking compression condylar plates. The OTA classification was followed. Neers’ functional scoring system was used for functional outcome analysis. All the 25 cases went on for sound union at an average of 17 weeks (14 to 21 weeks). For carefully selected cases, locking compression condylar plates offer stable fixation, achieving sound union and a reliably good functional knee movement.
