2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates Introduction

2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates are used to treat fractures of the small bones. It is a small metal plate that is surgically implanted onto the affected bone to stabilize it and promote healing. These plates are commonly used in cases where a fracture is severe, displaced, or unstable and cannot be treated with a cast or splint alone.

The plate is typically made of titanium and is designed to be low profile and contoured to fit the shape of the bone. It is secured to the bone using screws, which are also made of titanium and come in various sizes and lengths to accommodate different bone sizes and types of fractures.

2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates are usually placed on the underside of the bone to minimize interference with the tendons and ligaments that run over the top of the hand. The plate is typically left in place for several months to allow the bone to heal, after which it may be removed surgically.

These plates has been shown to significantly improve the outcome of hand and foot fracture treatment, reducing the time needed for healing and decreasing the risk of complications such as malunion (improper healing of the bone) or non-union (failure to heal). However, like any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with the use of hand fracture plates, including infection, nerve damage, and implant failure. Your doctor will evaluate your specific case to determine if this is the best treatment option for you.

Hand and Foot fractures are a common injury that can affect people of all ages. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the fracture and promote proper healing. The type of 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates used will depend on a number of factors, including the location and severity of the fracture, as well as the patient’s age and overall health. In some cases, a plate may be used temporarily and removed once the bone has healed, while in other cases the plate may be left in place permanently.

Advantages of using locking plate for 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates

  • 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates are  locking plate so it does not have to precisely contact the underlying bone in all areas. When screws are tightened, they “lock” to the threaded screw holes of the plate, stabilizing the segments without pulling the bone to the plate. Locking screws make it impossible for screw insertion to alter the reduction. Nonlocking plate/screw systems require a precise adaptation of the plate to the underlying bone. Without this close contact, tightening of the screws will pull the bone segments toward the plate, resulting in loss of reduction and possibly the occlusal relationship
  • Locking plate/screw systems do not disrupt the underlying cortical bone perfusion as much as conventional plates, which compress the plate to the cortical bone.
  • Screws are unlikely to loosen from the plate. Similarly, if a bone graft is screwed to the plate, a locking head screw will not loosen during the phase of graft incorporation and healing. The possible advantage to this property of a locking plate/screw system is decreased risk of inflammatory complications due to hardware loosening.
  • Locking plate/screw systems have been shown to provide more stable fixation than conventional nonlocking plate/screw systems.

Locking Screw Technology

The heads of the locking screws contain male threads while the holes in the plates contain female threads. This allows the screw head to be threaded into the 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates hole, locking the screw into the plate. This technical innovation provides the ability to create a fixedangle construct while using familiar plating techniques.

Locking Plate Technology

By using locking screws in a bone plate, a fixed-angle construct is created. In osteopenic bone or fractures with multiple fragments, secure bone purchase with conventional screws may be compromised. Locking screws do not rely on bone/plate compression to resist patient load, but function similarly to multiple small angled blade plates. In osteopenic bone or comminuted fractures, the ability to lock screws into a fixed-angle construct is imperative.

By combining locking screw holes with compression screw slots in the shaft, the plate can be used as both a locking device and a fracture compression device. If compression is desired, it must be achieved first by inserting the standard screws in the compression screw slots before inserting any locking screws.

2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates Surgical Technique

Select implant

Select the plates according to the fracture pattern and anatomy of the bone.

Reduce fracture

Reduce the fracture under image intensification and, if necessary, fix with Kirschner wires or reduction forceps. The reduction method is fracture-specific.

Trim Hand and Foot Plates

Trim the plate to the desired length using bending/cutting pliers. Remove the burrs.

Contour plate

If necessary, contour the plate to suit the anatomical conditions. Use bending pins for LCP Plates and thread the pins into the screw holes to contour the plate. The plate can also be bent using two flat nosed pliers.

If possible, bend the plate between the locking/LCP holes. Do not deform the threaded part of the holes or overbend the plate as this may adversely affect insertion of locking screws. Avoid repetitive bending of the plate. Reverse bending or use of the incorrect instrumentation for bending may weaken the plate and lead to premature plate failure (e.g. breakage). Do not bend the plate beyond what is required to match the anatomy.

Position plate

Position the plate over the reduced fracture and, if necessary fix provisionally with Kirschner wires or reduction forceps. When using the holding forceps with swivel foot to hold the plate, remove the drill sleeves from the surrounding holes so that the holding forceps sit flush on the plate.

Determine screw type

Depending on the individual case, cortex and/or locking screws may be inserted. Determine where locking screws and where cortex screws will be used.
The final screw placement and the use of locking and cortex screws are determined by the fracture pattern. If a locking screw is inserted first, ensure that the Hand and Foot Plates are held securely to the bone to prevent the plate from spinning as the screw locks into the plate.

Screw Insertion Cortical Screws

Drill the screw hole using the drill bit and the corresponding drill guide / drill sleeve. Determine the screw length with the corresponding depth
gauge. Insert the self-tapping cortex screw using the corresponding screwdriver.

Screw Insertion Locking Screws

Drill screw hole through the LCP drill sleeve using the appropriately sized drill bit. Determine the screw length either with the corresponding depth gauge or with the LCP drill sleeve. When using the LCP drill sleeve check the length directly on the scale of the drill sleeve. Then remove the drill sleeve. Insert the self-tapping locking screw using the corresponding screwdriver shaft and the appropriate handle.

Implant Removal

To remove the plate, first unlock all screws then definitely remove them in a second step. If the screws are not unlocked before removal the plate may rotate while the last screw is being removed and cause soft tissue damage.

2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates Contraindications

Contraindications may be qualified or total, and need to be taken into consideration when evaluating the prognosis in each case. The physician’s education, training and professional judgement must be relied upon to choose the most appropriate device and treatment. Conditions presenting an increased risk of failure include:

  • Any active or suspected latent infection or marked local inflammation in or about the affected area.
  • Compromised vascularity that would inhibit adequate blood supply to the fracture or the operative site.
  • Bone stock compromised by disease, infection or prior implantation that can not provide adequate support and/or fixation of the devices.
  • Material sensitivity, documented or suspected.
  • Obesity. An overweight or obese patient can produce loads on the implant that can lead to failure of the fixation of the device or to
    failure of the device itself.
  • Patients having inadequate tissue coverage over the operative site.
  • Implant utilization that would interfere with anatomical structures or physiological performance.
  • Any mental or neuromuscular disorder which would create an unacceptable risk of fixation failure or complications in postoperative care.
  • Other medical or surgical conditions which would preclude the potential benefit of surgery.
  • All associated diseases which could endanger the function and success of the 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates.

Warnings and Precautionary for 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates

Before using 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates, the surgeon and ancillary staff should study the safety information in these instructions, as well as any product-specific information in the product description, surgical procedures and/or brochures.

Plates are made from medical grade materials and are designed, constructed and produced with utmost care. These quality assure best working results provided they are used in the proper manner. Therefore, the following instructions for use and safety recommendations must be observed.

Improper use of Plates can lead to damage to the tissue, premature wear, destruction of the instruments and injury to the operator, patients or other persons.

It is vital for the operating surgeon to take an active role in the medical management of their patients. The surgeon should thoroughly understand all aspects of the surgical procedure and instruments including their limitations. Care in appropriate selection and proper use of surgical instruments is the responsibility of the surgeon and the surgical team. Adequate surgical training should be completed before use of this plate.

Factors which could impair the success of the operation:

  • Allergies to implanted materials.
  • Localized bone tumours.
  • Osteoporosis or osteomalacia.
  • System disease and metabolic disturbances.
  • Alcohol and drug abuse.
  • Physical activities involving excessive shocks, whereby the implant is exposed to blows and/or excessive loading.
  • Patients who are mentally unable to understand and comply with the doctor’s instructions.
  • Poor general health.

Possible Adverse Effects

The following adverse effects are the most common resulting from implantation:

  • Loosening of the 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates, which may result from cyclic loading of the fixation site and/or tissue reaction of the implant.
  • Early and late infection.
  • Further bone fracture resulting from unusual stress or weakened bone substance.
  • Temporary or chronic neural damage resulting from pressure or hematomata.
  • Wound hematomas and delayed wound healing.
  • Vascular disease including venal thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and cardiac arrest.
  • Heterotopic ossification.
  • Pain and discomfort due to presence of the Implants.
  • Mechanical failure of the implant, including bending, loosening or breakage.
  • Migration of implant resulting in injury.

Preoperative Planning for 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates

The operating planning is carried out following a thorough clinical evaluation of the patient, Also, x-rays must be taken to allow a clear indication of the bony anatomy and associated deformities. At the time of the operation, the corresponding implantation instruments in addition to a complete set of 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates must be available.

The clinician should discuss with the patient the possible risks and complications associated with the use of Implants. It is important to determine pre-operatively whether the patient is allergic to any of the implant materials. Also, the patient needs to be informed that the performance of the device cannot be guaranteed as complications can affect the life expectancy of the device.

2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates Precautions

  • Confirm functionality of instruments and check for wear during reprocessing. Replace worn or damaged instruments prior to use.
  • It is recommended to use the instruments identified for these plates.
  • Handle devices with care and dispose worn bone cutting instruments in a sharps container.
  • Always irrigate and apply suction for removal of debris potentially generated during implantation or removal.

2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates Warnings

  • 2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates can break during use (when subjected to excessive forces). While the surgeon must make the final decision on removal of the broken part based on associated risk in doing so, we recommend that whenever possible and practical for the individual patient, the broken part should be removed. Be aware that implants are not as strong as native bone. Implants subjected to substantial loads may fail.
  • Instruments, screws and cut plates may have sharp edges or moving joints that may pinch or tear user’s glove or skin.
  • Take care to remove all fragments that are not fixated during the surgery.
  • While the surgeon must make the final decision on implant removal, we recommend that whenever possible and practical for the individual patient, fixation devices should be removed once their service as an aid to healing is accomplished. Implant removal should be followed by adequate post-operative management to avoid refracture.

2.7 mm Locking Bone Plates General Adverse Events

As with all major surgical procedures, risks, side effects and adverse events can occur. While many possible reactions may occur, some of the most common include: Problems resulting from anesthesia and patient positioning (e.g. nausea, vomiting, dental injuries, neurological impairments, etc.), thrombosis, embolism, infection, nerve and/or tooth root damage or injury of other critical structures including blood vessels, excessive bleeding, damage to soft tissues incl. swelling, abnormal scar formation, functional impairment of the musculoskeletal system, pain, discomfort or abnormal sensation due to the presence of the device, allergy or hypersensitivity reactions, side effects associated with hardware prominence, loosening, bending, or breakage of the device, mal-union, non-union or delayed union which may lead to breakage of the implant, reoperation.
