3Plate selection and preparation

Plate preparation

The plates are contoured to approximate the dorsal surface of the distal proximal phalanx and proximal middle phalanx with the stacked combi-hole into the plate positioned over the proximal end of the middle phalanx.
The distal end of the plate is bent slightly to ensure that the middle phalangeal plate screw is directed into the major substance of the eminence fragment.
