Figure 3: Peroperative photographs showing (a) Modified Smith–Petersen approach. An adequately large window, the size of which is dictated by the size of the lesion, is made over the anterior aspect of the proximal femoral shaft and neck using saw and burr (b) Completed modified Smith–Petersen approach. The abductors are reflected from the iliac crest, in continuity with the vastus lateralis distally. The iliac crest defect is a result of autograft harvest. The anterior window in the femoral neck is used for curettage and inserting autograft struts. A proximal femoral locked plate is inserted using the same approach
