Distal Femur Locking Plate Fixation for Periprosthetic Fracture

February 10, 2018

Contributors: Mark Hake, MD; Todd Conlan, MD; Todd Conlan, MD

This video illustrates a surgical technique for placement of a locking plate for fixation of a supracondylar femur fracture distal to a previously placed intramedullary nail. The video presents a surgical approach with multiple technical pearls to help achieve union. The video also discusses relevant anatomy, biomechanics, modulation of construct stiffness, and recent literature on the use of locking plates for fixation of distal femur fractures.
