We report a new surgical elderly method for femoral condylar or supracondylar fractures in elderly patients. The cases studied consisted of 4 females with an average age of 81 years (range; 67 to 92 years), 2 were Grade 1 and 2 were Grade 2 according to Singh's classification.
The surgical methods consisted of cross screwing after the fixation of the intramedullary supracondylar nail. Bone union was achiered in all cases without external fixations after surgery.
