Insertion of locking head screw in the articular block

To improve visualization of the condyle, the drill sleeves for the two most proximal holes are guided through the aluminum foot part of the insertion guide only. To prevent rotation of the drill sleeve, it is therefore necessary to hold it with two fingers during insertion or removal of the K-wire, as well as during insertion or removal of the two most proximal screws.
