Insertion of standard bicortical screws

Insertion of additional proximal screws

You may insert either standard bicortical screws (as illustrated), or locking-head screws, through the proximal plate. A standard screw is inserted after drilling with a 3.2 mm drill bit. A 5.0 mm locking-head screw is inserted after drilling with a 4.3 mm drill bit through the threaded drill sleeve.
