12Distal locking with screws

Screw insertion

The sites of the skin and fascial incisions for the drill bit and the distal locking screws may be determined after the drill sleeve assembly has been inserted into the holes of the aiming device. The length of each locking screw is read from the calibrated drill bit. The correct length is confirmed using image intensifier control.
