A 20 year old male presented with deformity in Right Thigh since last 1 month. The patient was operated 2 months back for Femur shaft fracture for which CRIF with IM Nailing was done at other center. Patient had a history of immediate weight bearing post-operatively, but there was no history of trauma. On examination he had a varus deformity in Right thigh, no external wound, old surgical scars were well healed & no tenderness at fracture site. Patient was able to do full weight bearing walking when reported to us. X-Ray of Right Femur revealed a bent IM nail in situ.
It was a challenging case since we had to remove a bent IM nail and then as per our plan to do a ORIF with locking plate.
- After exposing the fracture site through the conventional lateral approach to the femur, all intervening fibrous tissue at the fracture site was removed.
- An attempt was made to straighten the bent IM nail in situ.
- And the bent IM nail was successfully removed.
- Finally, reduction & plating was done with bone grafting using callus removed from the fracture site.
