Minor and major complication rate were 9.7% and 12% respectively. Significant relation was noticed between age group and outcome of repair, season and type of complication and nature of fracture and rate of complication. Both the type and rate of complication was significantly related with bone affected and type of fixation. The findings were statistically significant at P
