Patient positioning

Second intermediate ring

Add a second ring in the distal fragment of the midshaft, connecting it with 4 rods to the distal ring.
Again, the distance of this fourth ring to the fracture will determine the working length. More length means more flexibility while a shorter length will give greater rigidity.
Insert 2 K-wires as perpendicular to each other as possible.
