Core Tip Femoral shaft fracture nonunion after surgical fixation is a rare complication known to be associated with infection, anatomic abnormalities, hardware failure, and other aseptic etiologies. It is now known that intramedullary bone pedestal formation can also be a cause of nonunion after fracture dynamization. In order to prevent this complication, surgeons should elect to use a maximal length intramedullary nail during initial fixation and follow up closely if the patient is showing signs of delayed union.
