Minimally invasive percutaneous plate osteosynthesis (MIPPO) has well-documented biological advantages and appears to be a reasonable treatment option for complex femoral and tibial fractures. However additional radiation exposure during reduction of the fracture, application of the plate to the bone and screw fixation is one of the disadvantages of this technique. We describe a technical trick for screw fixation in MIPPO with locking compression plates which decreases the duration of fluoroscopy use during the operation.
