6Reduction and fixation of the intermediate column

Reduction of the central articular fragment

After gentle retraction of the dorsoulnar fragment, the large articular fragment that is impacted into the metaphysis is identified.

The fragment is levered up and reduced onto the proximal carpal row.
In this illustration, the overlying ulna and the radial plate have been omitted in the interest of clarity.
