Abstract Elastic stable intramedullary nailing is currently considered a clinical practice standard for the treatment of femoral fractures in children in the age-appropriate group. Malreduction, particularly in rotation, due to the closed reduction technique has been reported. We describe a new technique of positioning on a standard operating table that permits better control of rotational alignment during femoral elastic stable intramedullary nailing.
