Forty six cases of fractures of forearm bones in adults were primarily operated and fixed with Talwalkar’s interamedullary square nails. Thirty one cases had fracture of both bones while 15 had only one bone broken. Period of post operative immobilization was 2 weeks. Functional results were excellent in 42 out of 46 cases. There were no major complications. Non union rate was 4.3 per cent. Talwalkar’s intramedullary square nails have distinct advantages over conservative or operative treatment with any nail in treatment of these fractures.
