7Screws and plate

Plate selection and preparation

Usually, a 6-7-hole 2 mm small animal cuttable plate is used for this technique. This can be an old used plate and it is advisable to enlarge the most distal and most proximal plate holes with a 3.5 mm metal drill bit before sterilization of the plate.
These plates can be bent by hand immediately before introduction.
