About this product

Division: International
Category: Mandible Plates And Screws

MatrixMANDIBLE™ Preformed Reconstruction Plates are preshaped to the anatomy of the mandible. Their shape was obtained by statistical analysis of data derived from a large number of CT scans, originating from various adult populations*.

The combination of anatomic design and manufacturing processes allows reduction of stress in the plate compared to classical intraoperative bending of a flat plate. The minimal intraoperative bending that may be required preserves the optimal threaded hole shape, with no deformation of holes in the preformed sections. These features result in a plate, which has an increased fatigue life compared to flat reconstruction plates, reducing the risk of premature plate failure**.

Intended Use

The MatrixMANDIBLE Preformed Reconstruction Plates are intended for mandibular reconstruction with bone graft (vascularized or not), temporary bridging until secondary reconstruction, the treatment of the comminuted fractures of the mandible and the treatment of fractures in edentulous and atrophic mandibles, and unstable and/or infected mandibular fractures.
