The patient was identified and the site of surgery confirmed. Anesthesia was induced. Prophylactic antibiotics were administered. The patient was placed supine on the fracture table in minimal skin traction. The opposite leg was abducted and extended. Fluoroscopy was used to verify appropriate visualization of the hip, subchondral bone, and physeal plate in the AP and lateral planes. The patient was then prepped and draped.
