Pitfall: check proper plate alignment of the LISS on the lateral tibial shaft in both the AP and lateral projection
Before fixing the LISS to the bone with the screws in the shaft area, check
if they all are in a central position in the lateral cortex. In the event of an
eccentric position, there is substantial risk of implant failure with loss of
fixation due to the fact that eccentrically inserted screws have a markedly
reduced fixation strength. This applies especially to monocortical screws.
