3Reduction and plate fixation

Insertion of proximal screws

Check this reduction, using intraoperative image intensification, before proximal fixation of the plate.

The fracture zone is bridged, with no attempt to reduce the individual fragments of the multifragmentary zone, and the plate then secured to the proximal shaft using screws inserted in a neutral fashion.
