Two hundred and twenty four fractures of femoral shaft in 222 patients were treated by the indigenous method of closed nailing without roentgenographic control. Reaming was not done. Successful closed nailing could be done in 205 fractures. Average follow-up was 37.3 months. Hospital stay and sickness absenteeism were greatly curtailed after closed nailing. Majority of the patients were bearing full weight by 2 months. Operative technique and pit-falls are discussed in detail.
