The lateral side is usually a simple oblique fracture, and is fixed with a lag screw and neutralization plate.
Alternatively, and in particular if there is poor bone or a small fragment, an antiglide plate may be used.

This may be fixed through direct reduction via a posterolateral approach with lag screws.
If indirect reduction is chosen, sagittal lag screws are inserted through separate stab incisions.
