Abstract:Introduction: In hypertrophic non union rigid fixation is needed, in atrophic non union of bone biological solution is needed either bone graft, bone growth factors, stem cells, demineralised bone matrix etc. We preferred to do bone marrow injection as it will be cost effective without donor site morbidity. Methodology: We included 30 patients of non union of long bones presented to MIMER medical college from April 2012 to March 2016 were selected for prospective study. Bone marrow injection of 20 ml to 40 ml was aspirated from iliac crest and injected with aseptic precaution under C-arm guidance. We followed them for the period of 6 months. Results: 17 males and 11 females, mean age was 37.2 years. Union was achieved in 22 of 28 patients were treated by bone marrow injection. Conclusion: Bone marrow injection treatment is relatively less invasive and cheaper than bone grafting procedure
