2.4mm LCP® Distal Radius System

Division: Trauma
Category: Plates and Screws

The Synthes 2.4 mm LCP® Distal Radius System is a comprehensive plating system to address a variety of fracture patterns. With anatomically shaped plates featuring fixed-angle support and Combi holes, the treatment of dorsal and volar distal radius fractures is achieved.

Indications for Use

The 2.4 mm LCP Distal Radius System is indicated for fixation of complex intra- and extra-articular fractures and osteotomies of the distal radius and other small bones in adults, skeletally mature adolescents, and the following adolescent distal radius fractures:

  • intra-articular fractures exiting the epiphysis
  • intra-articular fractures exiting the metaphysis
  • physeal crush injuries
  • any injuries which cause growth arrest to the distal radius


Features & Benefits

  • A wide variety of dorsal and volar plates allows implant placement to match the individual patient anatomy and fracture pattern
  • Low plate-and-screw profile and rounded plate edges minimize potential for tendon and soft tissue irritation
  • Locking screws and pins result in a fixed-angle construct to support the articular surface, reduce the need for bone graft, and obtain fixation in osteoporotic bone
  • Locking option available in all plate holes
  • Combi holes in the locking compression plates (LCP) allow locking screw fixation in the threaded portion, or compression/neutralization in the nonthreaded section of the hole
  • Available in 316L stainless steel and commercially pure titanium
