Features & Benefits


Features Benefits
  • Available in small and large bend to cover a wide range of tibial shapes
  • Available in 4 to 14 holes ranging from 87 mm to 237 mm to cover both tibial plateau and associated metaphyseal and diaphyseal fractures
  • Anatomically precontoured plates improve plate-to-bone fit which reduces the risk of soft tissue irritation
  • Easy-to-use instrumentation for straight forward assembly and improved handling
  • Aiming arm for minimally-invasive screw insertion suitable for all plate types (right, left, small bend, large bend)
  • Simple set configurations
Variable angle (VA) locking technology Four columns of threads in the VA locking holes provide a fixed-angle construct at the desired screw angle. VA locking holes allow +/- 15° off-axis screw angulation in order to:
  • Adapt screw trajectory to varying tibial plateau inclinations, thereby avoiding joint penetration
  • Adapt screw trajectory to condyle size by distributing screws over the tibial plateau
  • Capture fracture fragments and target specific anatomic regions
  • Anchor screws in good quality bone
  • Avoid collisions with other implants or prostheses
  • Color-coded VA locking screw heads for easy differentiation from locking screws
  • VA locking combi-holes in the plate shaft combine compression and VA locking capabilities
