OBJECTIVE Correction of all kind of deformities at the distal part of the femur (supracondylar). INDICATIONS Flexion, extension osteotomies, and varus or valgus, and external or internal rotation osteotomies, and shortening osteotomies of the distal femur or combined surgical procedures (e.g., extension and de-rotation osteotomy). CONTRAINDICATIONS Osteotomy through unknown bony process. SURGICAL TECHNIQUE LCP system provides angular stable fixation. POSTOPERATIVE MANAGEMENT Without concomitant surgical procedures of soft tissue (e.g., patellar tendon shortening), early functional rehabilitation is possible with immediate weight bearing (35 kg for small fragment plates and 70 kg for large fragment plates). RESULTS The surgical procedure is safe and is associated with few complications. Overall complication rate in this series of patients was 3%.
