Abstract

To evaluate the results of operative treatment - outcome, safety and efficacy of Titanium Elastic Nailing for the treatment of diaphyseal fractures of long bones in children in the age group between 5 to 16 years. Titanium elastic nail (TEN) fixation was originally meant as an ideal treatment method for femoral fractures, but was gradually applied to other long bone fractures in children, as it represents a compromise between conservative and surgical therapeutic approaches with satisfactory results and minimal complications. 2
