About this product

Division: International
Category: Plating Systems

The LCP™ Proximal Femoral Plate 4.5/5.0 is part of the LCP Periarticular Plating System, which merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques.

The proximal portion of the plate is precontoured for the proximal femur. The two proximal screw holes are designed for 7.3 mm cannulated locking screws and the third locking hole is designed for 5.0 mm cannulated locking screws. The hole for 5.0 mm locking screws is angled so the screw trajectory converges with the proximal 7.3 mm screw. Improved proximal femoral fixation in osteopenic bone is achieved by the screw angulation and the locking interface with the plate. The remaining screw holes in the plate shaft are combi-holes. This provides the surgeon with the flexibility to achieve plate-to-bone apposition as well as axial compression or angular stability.


Intended Use

For full information on indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions please see the product specific IFU and surgical technique 036.000.403.



Features & Benefits


Features Benefits
Holes - The two proximal plate holes are threaded and accept 7.3 mm cannulated screws (locking, conical fully threaded, or conical partially threaded).
- The third locking hole is threaded to accept 5.0 mm cannulated locking screws. (Necessity of this screw is fracture configuration dependent and should be identified during
preoperative planning.)
- The holes in the shaft of the plate are combi-holes that accept 5.0 mm locking screws in the
threaded portion of the hole and 4.5 mm cortex
screws in the DCU portion.
Plate – Anatomically contoured to approximate the lateral aspect of the proximal femur
– Plates specifically designed for left or right femur to accommodate average femoral neck anteversion
– Plate lengths allow spanning of the entire diaphysis in segmental fracture patterns
– Use of locking screws provides the option of an angular stable construct independent of bone quality
– Plate can be tensioned to create a load-sharing construct
– Manufactured of implant quality 316L stainless steel
– The three proximal screw holes are at the following angles to the plate shaft:
– First proximal hole (7.3 mm): 95°
– Second proximal hole (7.3 mm): 120°
– Third proximal hole (5.0 mm): 135°
