Thirty fresh diaphyseal fractures (femur 17, humerus 10, tibia 3) in 29 patients were treated by closed intramedullary nailing; 10 cases were done under image intensifier control and 20 without it. Age of the patients varied from 16 to 63 years (average 34.2 years). Out of the 30 cases 23 ended as successful closed nailing. In 7 cases of failed closed nailing, open intramedullary nailing was performed at the same time. Closed nailing was successful in 9 cases of humerus, 11 cases of femur and all the cases of tibia. The results were uniformly good, because patients had few complications, lesser period of hospitalization, rapid stabilization and early return of function.
