A study of 270 cases (486 fractures) of fracture of the forearm bones managed by open reduction and internal fixation using Talwalkar square nails was done. Autogenous bone grafting was done in 43.4 per cent of fractures and average follow up period was 19.2 months. Sound union was achieved in 94.45 per cent of cases. Only 9 fractures of ulna showed delayed union while 18 ulnar fractures developed non union. No non union was observed in fractures of the radius. Anatomical results were excellent in 189 cases (70%), 54 cases (20%) had good results and only 27 cases had poor results. Functionally excellent result were seen in 135 cases (50%), good in 117 cases (43.4%) and poor in 18 cases (6.7%). Minimal complications which were easily manageable were encountered.
