Abstract—Fracture shaft of tibia are increasing due to high velocity trauma and industrialization. Not only are they common but often difficult to treat. With the introduction of reamed intramedullary interlocking nail for tibial shaft fractures has overcome some of these complications and encourages the patients for early mobilization. This study has been done to evaluate the complications and functional outcome of reamed intramedullary interlocking nail for tibial shaft fractures .Forty two adult patients with fresh tibial shaft fractures were treated surgically with reamed intramedullary interlocking nail between October 2009 to September 2011. Among forty two patients treated, 24 fractures united at an average of 17.34 weeks with a union rate of 96%. Two fractures shows delayed union. Three cases had superficial infection and three had anterior knee pain. 57.14% have achieved excellent results. Reamed intramedullary interlocking nail is a safe and effective technique for management with high union rates and low complication.
