Position on the proximal femur
It is very important to confirm the correct LISS plate position proximally.
In the minimal invasive technique, this can be challenging. Even the use of an
image intensifier does not guarantee an optimal position.
Pearl: palpating proximal end of LISS plate
To overcome this problem, the proximal incision is enlarged and the correct
LISS plate position is controlled directly with the index finger, using the
insertion guide to alter the plate position.
