8LISS plate insertion

From the AP perspective, a 280 mm long guide wire is inserted through the fixation bolt in hole “A” and should be parallel to the plane of the tibiofemoral joint (green dashed line). At that point, the preshaped LISS plate is in the correct position, assuming normal anatomy. This helps to restore correct alignment in complex fracture patterns.
