Figure 1: SUPERhip procedure: The severe proximal femoral deformity of congenital femoral deficiency is seen in situ(top left). After soft tissue releases, the femur can be placed so that the neck is in an anatomic position. The blade plate is inserted into the neck (top right). After a subtrochanteric osteotomy, the bone ends are straightened and overlapped. The overlap is due to the tethering soft tissues whose length is shorter than the bone. The level of the second osteotomy for shortening is marked (bottom left). After the shortening, the distal femur is fixed to the plate (bottom right)
