A combination of PIP plates and/or 4-5 hole narrow LCP are used in most cases. Other plate constructs have been used successfully, including narrow, 4.5 mm DCPs and LC-DCPs.
The technique for fixation with DCP or LC/DCP is described for uniaxial eminence fractures as an example. For more details click here.
