9Fixation

Removal of the K-wire and insertion of a locking head screw in the most distal plate hole

The most distal locking head screw on the fixator should be inserted last, just before removal of the insertion guide, in order to ensure the stability of the construct. The stabilization bolt is then removed and the screw is inserted through the drill sleeve.
