Insertion of first screw into proximal fragment
Make stab incisions over the proximal fragment according to the planned
final screw placement.
Control the mid-lateral plate position using two blunt Hohmann retractors
placed ventrally and dorsally around the femoral shaft.
If the overall reduction is found to be satisfactory, insert the first
cortical screw in the distal part of the proximal main fragment, without fully
tightening. This still allows for the plate position to be finely tuned.
