Buttressing effect

Measure the depth and tap both cortices with the 3.5 mm tap, using the protection sleeve.

Carefully apply the uncontoured plate. Insert the first, more distal cortex screw. By tightening the screw, the plate will act as a buttress on the distal fragment.

Finally, insert the second 3.5 mm cortex screw as described above.
