3Positioning of a guide wire

As the lateral deviation of different implants vary, the exact entry point might change accordingly.

Guide-wire insertion

Take the guide wire for the short nail and insert it just lateral to the tip of the greater trochanter and in line with the middle of the femoral neck, and slightly lateral to a line corresponding to the anatomical axis of the shaft.

Note
As the lateral deviation of different implants vary, the exact entry point changes accordingly.
