Twenty four cases of fracture shaft of femur in adults were treated by indigenously designed and manufactured compression nail in this series. The present work was undertaken after getting encouraging results on experimental animals. Only transverse and short oblique fractures were taken into considerations and almost all cases were operated within three weeks of injury. A compression force of 20 kg/ at the fracture site was found to be optimum. Early bony union is observed in them and full range of joint mobility is preserved. Early weight bearing is possible with little loss of power in the limb.
