8LISS plate insertion

LISS plate insertion

Use the assembled insertion guide as a handle to insert the LISS plate into the submuscular tunnel between the vastus lateralis muscle and the periosteum.
Insert the LISS plate through the lateral incision.

Advance the LISS plate proximally under the vastus lateralis muscle, ensuring that its proximal end remains in constant contact with the bone. Position the distal end of the LISS plate against the lateral condyle. To identify the correct position, move the LISS plate proximally and then back distally until it fits the condylar contour.
