Risk of infection and bony defect are common after open fracture . So we need to dealt with both to improve patient outcome .<br>Treatment is always complicated and expensive and there is an uncertainty in the final outcome .<br>In 1980’s, Masquelet first described the technique of the induced membrane and autologous bone grafting to manage critical size bone defects.<br>In Septic non-union 2 diffenrent surgical steps are require for management .In former step , allow radical management to control infection and in later step , allow biological stimulus for bone healing .<br>In this case , we present a 28 years old female patient with open grade 3A Femur shaft Fracture on right side . Patient was initially treated with wound debridement and Femur plating which unfortunately resulted in septic non-union .It was then subsequently managed with the induced membrane technique and a double-plate osteosynthesis to protect the biological chamber.</p> 2023-04-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Author (s).
