Figure 4: Illustration of the author’s preferred method of treatment using a Plaple (Arthrex, Naples, Florida). A Kirschner wire holds the reduction as the Plaple is tamped down a hole pre-drilled into the proximal fragment. The Plaple is oriented with the thinner staple side in the subchondral bone of the narrow proximal fragment and a compression screw for the distal fragment. The screw path is pre-drilled with a 1.7 mm drill through the eyelet of the Plaple. The appropriate screw length is measured and the screw is advanced while maintaining reduction of the fracture site and achieving compression.
