6Plate application (low fracture exit medially)

Medial: One-third tubular plate

The medial plate is applied first. It serves as an antiglide plate. The plate is contoured around the medial epicondyle and fixed distally. The proximal fragment is then pulled underneath the plate with a first eccentrically drilled screw in the proximal fragment.
