Such issues can be tackled by biplanar technique of screw placement with the concept of placing the 3 screws in 2 planes and in an obtuse angle. This technique allows the efficient weight bearing by successfully transferring weight from the head of femur onto the diaphyseal shaft by providing two steady supporting points and the obtuse angle of placement of the screws, this takes into account the strength of screws, even in a osteoporotic patient's bone.
