Reduction and preliminary fixation

Preliminary fixation

Preliminary fixation

Quite often, the humeral head is not stable enough and requires additional preliminary fixation using 2 or 3 K-wires. Make sure to place them from anterior in order to avoid interference with the foreseen plate position.

Confirmation of reduction
The correct reduction must be confirmed in both AP and lateral views using image intensifier control.
