Abstract

We describe the use of a universal T-handle chuck to provide preliminary stabilization of the Less Invasive Stabilization System supracondylar femur implant and aiming device. This technique is helpful to maintain the position of the plate against the bone during intraoperative radiographs and initial screw insertion. Use of this simple technique may help avoid the problems that occur when the plate is positioned too far away from the lateral femoral cortex.
