Twenty-four unstable and comminuted femoral shaft fractures were treated by improvised closed static locked nailing. All the fractures had healed within 24 weeks of surgery. Two patients had lateral rotation deformity of 5° to 10°. One had shortening of 1 cm and another had posterior angulation of about 10°. There was no infection, delayed union, non-union or implant failure. Closed static locked nailing can provide stability in fractures of the femoral shaft irrespective of the degree of comminution and the site of injury. We have used improvised implants and a simple technique. It is not very expensive and easily available.
