Figure 2: Intraoperative photograph showing (a) Position of the limb during measurements in line with the axis of the body and parallel to the floor (b) In order to have straight measurements, the suture is tied in a point in line with the axis of the femur (c) The limbs of the suture are clamped by a straight forcep in a distance about 10 cm away from the tied skin point. Applying a standard tension, the tip of the forcep is placed on the lateral greater trochanter area. The point where the tip of the forcep touches the femur is marked by diathermy (d) The marked route of the suture as it crosses the subcutaneous tissue while the tip of the forcep touches the femur
