Preliminary reduction

Use of large distractor

After the placement of two pins - one in the greater trochanter and the second one in the shaft - the large distractor is attached.

Attention has to be paid so that the pins do not conflict with the later plate position.

The preliminary reduction is held by tightening the clamps of the large distractor.
