Abstract

Despite the increasing use of flexible intramedullary nailing for the treatment of femoral shaft fractures during growth, the use of acute or delayed plaster fixation is still a widely practised alternative in preschool children. The purpose of this retrospective study was to analyse outcome following acute casting in preschool children with a focus on acceptable initial leg length discrepancy and angulation.
