Application of the plate

The plate is held in position and compressed to the distal proximal phalanx by placing the push-pull device in the middle combi-hole.
Check the positioning of the implant and the proposed screw position with appropriate imaging technology.

Note: It may be advantageous to prepare the glide holes and their countersinking for the two abaxial transarticular cortex screws prior to applying the plate to ensure that the plate does interfere with their preparation at a later point of time.
