Fractures of the distal femur have been reported to account for between 4% and 7% of all femoral fractures. If fractures of the hip are excluded, 31% of femoral fractures involve the distal femur. With the modern trends of high-energy lifestyles combined with increased longevity, this incidence is probably increasing. The patients included in this study were those with communited Supracondylar fractures of the femur with intra articular involvement and disruption of the joint surface. No pathological fractures or fractures in the children were included in the study. All the patients were treated in the Department of Orthopedics, Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences, Hyderabad during the period between January 2008 and October 2012. Men and younger age group are more commonly involved by Road traffic accident. To give appropriate and optimum treatment for Supracondylar fractures with communition and intra articular extension is a challenge to every orthopedic surgeon and it needs careful preoperative planning, per operative skills and postoperative attention to obtain best results.
