Insertion of distal screws

Insert a screw through the most distal plate hole. This screw would normally be a standard screw, as it engages in thick cortical bone. A locking screw, using a threaded drill guide when drilling, may be inserted in osteoporotic bone, or when otherwise indicated.
The second distal screw is inserted using the same technique.
