4.5/5 mm Locking Medial Proximal Tibia Plate Specification, Uses, Sizes & Surgical Instruments.
4.5/5 mm Locking Medial Proximal Tibia Plate Specification
- Plates available holes are 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14.
- 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 5 mm locking screws or 5 mm locking cancellous screws.
- 4.5/5 mm Locking Medial Proximal Tibia Plate allow implant placement to address the individual fracture pattern.
- Two holes for preliminary fixation with K-wires, or meniscal repair with sutures in plate head.
- 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.
- Pre-contoured plate to match anatomical shape.
- 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 Medial Proximal Tibia 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 Medial Proximal Tibia Plate Uses
- 4.5/5 mm Locking Medial Proximal Tibia Plate is indicated to buttress metaphyseal fractures of the medial tibial plateau, split-type fractures of the medial tibial plateau, medial split fractures with associated depressions and split or depression fractures of the medial tibial plateau.
- The plate may also be used for fixation of the proximal quarter (lateral and medial) of the tibia, as well as segmental fractures of the proximal tibia.
- The Plate may also be used for fixation of nonunions and malunions of the medial proximal tibia and tibia shaft, as well as opening and closing wedge tibial osteotomies.
