Two 8-12 hole 2.4 mm Unilock plates are well suited for this repair. Alternatively, other locking plates can be used, like 3.5 reconstruction plates. The Unilock plates, have the reconstruction plate – design and have been used in human surgery for mandibular fracture repai. These plates are considered suitable since they are locking plates with increased stability and allow the use of short 2.4 and 3 mm locking head - as well as 2.4 mm cortex screws.
A 8 to 12 hole plate is placed on each side and is secured with 3 mm locking screws. Four screws are placed proximal and four distal to the suture.
