Fixation

Insertion of the proximal screws

Use the 2.5 mm drill bit and protection sleeve. Drill both cortices, but exercise great care not to overpenetrate laterally.

Measure the depth and tap both cortices with the 3.5 mm tap, using the protection sleeve.

Carefully apply the uncontoured plate and insert the first cortex screw. By tightening the screw, the plate will act as a buttress on the distal fragment.

Insert the second proximal 3.5 mm cortex screw as described above.
