Intramedullary Interlocking nails are placed in the medullary cavity of a long bone like Femur, Tibia, Humerus. These nails are secured in position by proximal and distal transfixing screws to provide bending, axial and torsional stability. Orthopaedic interlocking nail enables an early return to limb function with the additional advantage of minimal soft tissue morbidity. Due to curvature of the femur, shorter nails would ideally be required. In some cases, the femur may be restored in a slightly straighter alignment than it was before fracture.
