5Fixation with K-Wires /cannulated screws

Filling the void (optional)

If there is a defect in the metaphyseal bone as a result of the disimpaction of the articular fragments, the void can be filled with autogenous cancellous bone.

If cannulated screws are not available, the K-wires may be bent and buried under the skin.
