Personal experience in the treatment of arm fractures using intramedullary osteosynthesis is reported. The means of fixation were Galluccio's nails inserted using a distal route. Intramedullary osteosynthesis is easy to carry out even in emergency; it gives fractures sufficient stability to promote the formation of the callus. It is free of complications, such as infections and is low cost from an economic point of view.
