This is a prospective study based on 51 consecutive cases with 52 tibial diaphyseal fractures (23 closed, 29 open-Gr.I and Gr II) fulfilling our inclusion criteria and stabilized with primary undreamed AO tibial locked nailing with a followup ranging from 8-30 months. 36 were males and 15 females with an age range of 18-55 years. Open fractures were classified according to Gustilo and comminuted fractures according to Winquist. Most of the fractures were locked in dynamic and 27 in static mode. All the fractures united in an average period of 5.2 months. Functional results were evaluated by the Ekeland assessment system. 6 fractures were dynamised. There was infection in 4 fractures (7.7%), delayed union in 2 fractures (3.8%) and implant failure in 2 fractures (3.8%). Results were evaluated and compared with various studies.
