5Plate fixation

Application of the plate

Insert a nonlocking, standard screw through the oblong plate hole, but do not fully tighten it yet.

Confirm the reduction and correct plate position using image intensification, then tighten the screw.

If the provisional K-wire conflicts with the optimal plate position, the plate can be slipped over the wire.
