6Intermediate column

Plate application

The plate is precontoured and positioned so that it buttresses the intermediate column and supports the reconstructed radiocarpal joint surface.

Fix the plate provisionally with a standard cortical screw through the oblong hole.

Check the reduction and position of the implants using image intensification.

If necessary, adjust the reduction and plate position, then tighten the screw.
