Abstract

The importance of using the centered lateral view of the knee for placement of tensioned wires during the treatment of periarticular fractures of the proximal tibia is illustrated. The technique of using a horizontal reference wire as a landmark for subsequent wire placement is described for circular fixators and hybrid fixators.
