Condylar LCP insertion
After approximate closed reduction of the metaphyseal fracture, the Condylar
LCP is ready to be inserted. Slide the Condylar LCP into the submuscular tunnel
between the vastus lateralis muscle and the periosteum (= epiperiosteal
Advance the Condylar LCP proximally under the vastus lateralis muscle,
ensuring that its proximal end remains in constant contact with the bone.
Position the distal end of the plate against the lateral condyle. To identify
the correct position, move the Condylar LCP proximally and then back distally
until the plate perfectly fits the lateral condylar surface.
