Femoral fractures in children are among the most common fractures of long bones. Various methods of treatment exist based on age of the patient, pattern of the fracture and acceptance of the patient and par-ents.

In this study our aim is to share our experience of stainless steel flexible intramedullary nail-ing as a treatment modality in femur shaft fractures in children from age 6 to 11 years.
