Abstract:

Fractures in the patients aged between 5–15 years. 10 patients were followed up for the mean period of 12 months and evaluated using Flynn’s criteria. All the fractures united between 8–12 weeks. 2 patients had knee stiffness, 1 patient had shortening > 2 cm and 1 had superficial infection. We conclude that TENs is simple, rapid & effective treatment for displaced pediatric femoral shaft fractures between 5–15 years of age with very less complication rate.
