Open osteosynthesis of long bones fractures carries high risk of complications. Among them plate breakage, slow union, delyed union and non-union are most often observed. The paper presents analysis of 3 cases of bone union complications treated by locked intramedullary nailing. The aim was to show differences in tactic of treatment in different bones and in nonunions after different types of osteosynthesis. Although bone union is longer than in fresh fractures, good functional result was obtained in each case. Locked intramedullary nailing permits stable bone fixation. Intramedullary canal reaming refreshes site of non-union and stimulates bone consolidation. It is also a source of autologous bone graft. Like in treatment of fresh fractures the method permits early, active and efficient patient rehabilitation.
