6Definitive radial styloid fixation

Insert subchondral distal locking head screw(s)

Insert a locking head screw into the distal locking hole of the plate. Using variable angle screws allows optimal direction of fixation.

The position of the screw should be just under the subchondral bone.

Once the screw is inserted, the K-wire(s) may be removed.
