Objective: To study the results of Biological plating or Interlocking nail for the closed diaphyseal fracture of the tibia in Department of Orthopedics, KLE University's, Dr. Prabhakar Kore Hospital and Medical Research Center, Belgaum. The aim of this study was the evaluation of the results of biological plating or interlocking nail for closed diaphyseal fractures of the tibia. Materials and Methods: The study included 30 patients. All the patients underwent a comprehensive orthopedic examination and work-up was done to diagnose and classify tibial fractures. The treatment modalities were suggested accordingly. Results: Intramedullary nailing should be the method of choice for treating the closed type of tibial shaft fractures. Biological plating should be considered as an alternative in intramedullary interlocking nail in specific indications. Conclusion: Comprehensive orthopedic examination with detailed study of fracture pattern and type of fracture help to evaluate the different modalities of treatment.
