Category: Plating Systems
The LCP™ Medial Proximal Tibial Plates 4.5/5.0 is part of the Periarticular system, which merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques.
For full information on indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions please see the product specific IFU and surgical technique DSEM/TRM/0115/0286(2) .
|Anatomically contoured||The plate fits exactly onto the medial proximal tibia. Soft tissue irritation is reduced. No need for intraoperative plate bending.|
|Three parallel proximal locking holes||Locking and/or Conical Screws can be placed close to the articular surface with the rafting technique.|
|Two 2.0 mm proximal holes||2.0 mm K-wires can be placed proximally for preliminary fixation or holes can be used for meniscal repair with sutures.|
|Two proximal locking holes distal to plate head||Hole angles allow the Locking and/or Conical Screws to converge with two of the three screws in the plate head allowing for support the proximal screws.|
|LCP holes||The LCP holes allow for the placement of either 3.5 / 5.0 mm Locking Screw or 3.5 / 4.5 Cortex Screws.|
|Distal hole||Distal hole accepts the articulated tension device allowing for compression or distraction.|
|Undercuts||Improve periosteal blood supply if the plate is pressed against the bone.|
|Bullet nose||Allows a minimal invasive insertion of the plate.|
