4Option 1: Reduction with K-Wires and plate fixation

Insert a K-wire across the fracture, through the radial styloid, to provide provisional stabilization.

The articular block may be reduced with the aid of a pointed reduction clamp.
Temporary fixation with K-Wires of the articular block is an option.

Accurate anatomic reduction of the articular surface must be confirmed before the plate is applied.
