7Preliminary fixation

LISS insertion

Once the LISS has been assembled and fixed to the guide handle with the fixation bolt and stabilization sleeve inserted through the hole C of the guide you are ready to insert the internal fixator onto the bone.

Insert the assembled internal fixator between the anterior tibial muscle and the periosteum in the epiperiosteal space. The LISS plate is slid in the distal direction, with its distal end in constant contact with the bone. The proximal end of the plate is positioned against the lateral condyle. The correct position of the LISS on the condyle is checked carefully.
