Postoperative images after revision open reduction internal fixation using one curved broad 22-hole 4.5 mm LCP (DePuy-Synthes) that was contoured proximally and distally in order to allow for progression of the screw into the greater trochanter above the prosthesis and distally for purchase into the condylar region (not shown). Note the 3.5 mm screws with conical washers in holes 1, 2, 3, and 5 that were placed around the prosthesis. Two locking attachment plates were also used for additional fixation with 3.5 mm nonlocking and locking screws.
