2.4mm Variable Angle LCP® Dorsal Distal Radius Plate

Division: Trauma
Category: Plates and Screws

The 2.4 mm Variable Angle LCP® Dorsal Distal Radius Plate is part of the 2.4 mm Variable Angle LCP Distal Radius System. The low-profile dorsal distal radius plates are intended for the double plate technique, and are available in 6 different styles of plates

Indications for Use

The 2.4 mm Variable Angle LCP Dorsal Distal Radius Plates are intended 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

  • Variable angle LCP (VA-LCP) holes combined with variable angle locking screws allow up to 15° off-axis angulation in all directions
  • Four columns of threads in the variable angle locking hole provide four points of threaded locking between the variable angle LCP plate and the variable angle locking screw, forming a fixed-angle construct at the desired screw angle
  • Anatomically precontoured plates for the radial and intermediate column reduce the need for bending
  • Low-profile dorsal distal radius plates intended for the double-plate technique.
  • Kirschner wire holes enable preliminary plate fixation
