5Plate fixation to the proximal fragment

Eccentric screw insertion

Insertion of first screw into proximal fragment

Tighten the articulated tension device with the spanner so that the indicator on the tension device is in the green zone, checking the fracture site carefully to ensure that no unwanted displacement occurs.

Insert a screw through the plate close to the compression device to secure the fixation. Insert the screw eccentrically in the plate hole to maintain the fracture compression.

Complete the fixation of the plate to the femur with sufficient screws, using neutral insertion of the screws in the plate holes.
