4.5/5 mm Locking Condylar Buttress Plate Specification, Uses, Sizes & Surgical Instruments.
4.5/5 mm Locking Condylar Buttress Plate Specification
- Plates available holes are 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18.
- Plates available for Left and Right both direction
- 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 5 mm locking screws in the threaded portion or 4.5 mm cortical screws or 5 mm Locking cancellous screws in the compression portion. Distal locking holes in plate head accept 7.3 mm locking cannulated screws and 5 mm locking cannulated screws .
- 4.5/5 mm Locking Condylar Buttress 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.
- Anatomically shaped head is contoured to match the distal femur, eliminating intraoperative plate contouring.
- Plate shaft design permits use of a minimally invasive surgical technique.
- Available in both Titanium and Stainless steel.
- 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 4.5/5 mm Locking Condylar Buttress 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.
4.5/5 mm Locking Condylar Buttress Plate Uses
4.5/5 mm Locking Condylar Buttress Plate is an effective method for the treatment of Supracondylar and intercondylar fractures of the femur, which helps in early mobilization and CPM. To conclude, meticulous open reduction and stable internal fixation with the supracondylar plate and lag screw combined with autogenous bone grafting in patients with severe bone comminution provide an excellent opportunity to secure union with good limb alignment, joint congruity and range of motion.
- Buttressing of multifragmentary distal femur fractures
- Supracondylar fractures
- Intra-articular and extra-articular condylar fractures
- Malunions and nonunions of the distal femur
- Periprosthetic fractures
- Fractures in normal or osteopenic bone
