Screw insertion

Finishing fixation

Cut the 2 K-wires obliquely, approximately 1 cm from their insertion points and, with the help of a bending iron and forceps, bend through 180 degrees.

The K-wires are then driven home, sinking their curved ends into the bone to prevent backing out and skin injury.

Take final x-rays in both planes to check the results.
