A prospective study of 32 femoral shaft fractures treated by single A. O. Dynamic Compression plates was carried out. All the fractures in the study were unsuitable for intramedullary nailing. The complication rate was 18.7% with infections accounting for 3.1% and fixation failure for 6.2% cases. Results were satisfactory in 87.5% and poor in 12.5%. The suitability of anterolateral positioning of the plate is discussed.
