Intra-Operative Guide 3.3.2 Femur Registration 1.  Break the cortex at the mechanical axis entry point with a cortex breaker or a 3.2 mm drill bit. 2.  Impact the Femoral Spike or the CAS Small Spike 7.9 mm into the distal femur (2.5-3.5 cm). WARNING The spike should be aligned within 15° of the mechanical axis of the femur and be within 15° perpendicular to the final required orientation of the cut. This alignment is required because of the mechanical adjustment limit of the Femoral Adjustment Mechanism. 3.  Slide the Femoral Reference onto the spike. 4.  Align the Femoral Reference in a...
