Compound fracture resulting in segmental bone loss is a challenge to orthopaedic surgeons. Choosing a correct surgical modality for gap non union is controversial, In our study non-vascularized fibular graft was taken from contralateral leg as a biological intramedullary nail in the management of compound distal third both bones fracture right leg, which has shown good results at the end of 18months of followup.
