It is important to perform the distal locking first. If proximal locking is
done first, the surgeon will no longer be able to perform final corrections to
Distal locking is performed by using the appropriate aiming device attached
to the insertion handle.
It is preferable to use at least two distal locking options for all distal
femoral fracture types. When two distal locking options are used it is not
possible to perform dynamic distal locking. Dynamic locking can only be
achieved by using the proximal dynamic locking hole.
