Position of the plate
Use a seven or eight hole one-third tubular plate that can be positioned laterally, so that three screws find a secure hold in the distal fragment and three in the proximal fragment.
Contouring the plate
Before the plate is applied, it must be contoured with the help of an appropriate aluminum template.
The plate is contoured according to the shape of the fibula. It should fit perfectly onto the bone contour throughout its entire length.
