Every day human bones undergo different injuries resulting from public transport accidents, diseases or trauma. Consequently, they cause temporary or constant patients disability or even death. Fractures happen not only to elderly people suffering from osteoporosis, but also more and more frequently to young people, who got some injuries as a result of life style, e.g. doing sports. The desire to enhance the physical well being and quality of patients' life, who got some injury causes constant development of medical devices for osteosynthesis. In the case of complicated fractures, in which plaster treatment is not sufficient, surgical treatment and applying implant are indispensable. The aim of the article is to present two case studies on intramedullary nails. The first one concerns a method of osteosynthesis for a patient, who was injured in an accident. The second one presents the failure of the implanted intramedullary nail. The research included evaluation of the type of fracture and the analysis of microstructure, chemical composition and hardness of the implant materials.
