Application of the plate

First proximal screw

Position the plate firmly by hand and plan the position of the first proximal screw near the fracture.

Drill a 2.5 mm hole through both fibular cortices.

After measuring the length through the plate, tap with the 3.5 mm cortical tap and protection sleeve.

Insert the corresponding cortex screw. The screw should just penetrate the far cortex but not come into contact with the tibia.
