Planning for plate placement
The plate should wrap around the entire medial epicondyle. The ulnar nerve
must be mobilized and transposed.
Complex plate contouring, using a malleable template, is necessary.
This is possible with a reconstruction type plate. Alternatively, a
precontoured plate may be selected.
It is useful to be able to place a screw through the distal plate hole and
across the trochlea below the medial epicondyle.
