2.4 mm Locking L Plate Specification, Uses, Sizes & Surgical Instruments.
2.4 mm Locking L Plate Specification
- Plates available holes are 3 and 4.
- Plates available for Left and Right both direction.
- Available in both Titanium.
- Plate has combi holes and round holes. Combi holes allow fixation with locking screws in the threaded section and cortex screws in the dynamic compression unit section for compression.
- The shaft holes accept 2/2.4/2.7 mm locking screws in the threaded portion or 2/2.4/2.7 mm cortical screws in the compression portion. Plate head accept 2/2.4/2.7 mm locking screws in the threaded portion.
- Locking screws offer a fixed-angle construct to support the articular surface, reduce the need for bone graft, and obtain fixation in osteoporotic bone.
- 2.4 mm Locking L Plate allow implant placement to address the individual fracture pattern.
- Limited-contact surface reduces bone-to-plate contact and helps to preserve the periosteal blood supply.
- Choice of different lengths of plate eliminates the need to cut plates.
- Polished surface and rounded edges minimize potential for tendon adhesion.
- Low plate and screw profile minimizes potential for tendon and soft tissue irritation.
- Smaller plates and screws address fracture fragments individually, with less overall implant bulk
- locking plate increases construct stability, decreases risk of screw back-out and subsequent loss of reduction. It also reduces the need for precise anatomic plate contouring and minimizes the risk of stripped screw holes.
- A complete Instruments Set is available for 2.4 mm Locking L Plate. General Instruments are available for this plate such as Plate Bending Press, Plate Holding Forceps, Plate Bending Pliers, Bone Holding Forceps, Bone Elevators, Bone Cutter, Bone Nibbler, Depth Gauge, Sleeve, Screw Driver, Trocar Sleeve etc.
2.4 mm Locking L Plate Uses
2.4 mm Locking L Plate is intended for temporary fixation, correction or stabilization of bones in anatomical region of the hand.
–– Fracture fixation of the phalanges and metacarpals
–– Replantations and reconstructions of phalanges and metacarpals, particularly in osteopenic bone
