Predrilling of the Bone Plug

Semi-T Tendon   |  List of figures   |  Folding the Tendon

The bone plug is pierced using a 1.5 mm drill-bit. Drilling is facilitated by the use of the drill-guide-clamp. If the bone plug is fairly short one should insert the K-wire obliquely to the long axis into the cortical bone of the plug.
