2.4mm Variable Angle LCP® Volar Extra-Articular Distal Radius Plate

Division: Trauma
Category: Plates and Screws

The 2.4 mm Variable Angle LCP® Volar Extra-Articular Distal Radius Plates are the first variable angle plate and screw construct available from Synthes, and are part of the 2.4 mm Variable Angle LCP Distal Radius System.

Indications for Use

The 2.4 mm Variable Angle LCP Volar Extra-Articular 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

  • Eight anatomically contoured volar extra-articular distal radius plates
  • Variable angle LCP (VA-LCP) holes in the head of the plate combined with variable angle locking screws allow up to 15° off-axis angulation in all directions
  • Variable angle locking screws offer a locked construct to support the articular surface, reduce the need for bone graft, and obtain fixation in the osteoporotic bone
  • 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
  • Variable angle locking screw head has a spherical shape to facilitate angles within the locking hole
