126 patients, ranging from 16-90 years of age, with fracture of the distal femur were randomized to internal fixation through either locked plating or retrograde intramedullary nailing. Participants were followed-up for 12 months for radiographic, functional, and physical outcomes. Both methods of internal fixation demonstrated a comparable rate of malalignment, although plating was associated wit...
