8Posterior column: fixation

Application of a neutralization plate

In this case, a posterior column plate has been contoured to reinforce the rotational reduction accomplished. The most distal hole of the plate should rest on the ischium. Aim the first screw through this hole, so that it travels through the ischium for a length of 40-60 mm.

Proximally, this plate utilizes the sciatic buttress and excellent purchase can be expected.
