We have found the intramedullary supracondylar femoral nail to be useful in special situations involving the tibia: proximal tibial fractures and nonunions, intercalary resections for tumors in the proximal or distal tibial diaphysis, and tibio-talo-calcaneal arthrodeses. We report on ten such cases.
