MIPO approach

Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) approach to the distal femur from lateral/anterolateral

Minimally invasive approach to the midshaft or proximal femoral region

Skin incision

Make a short incision along an imaginary line (dashed line) between the lateral femoral epicondyle and the greater trochanter.

The starting point and the length of the incision depend on the operational requirements for the minimally invasive procedure.
