Distal ring placement

Place the ring at the level of the proximal end of the syndesmosis.
The first K-wire is inserted from posterolateral to anteromedial through the fibula.
A second wire should be inserted as perpendicularly as possible to the first one from anterolateral to posteromedial.
A third wire is inserted between these two.
