2.4mm Variable Angle LCP® Two-Column Volar Distal Radius Plate

Division: Trauma
Category: Plates and Screws

The 2.4 mm Variable Angle LCP® Two-Column Volar Distal Radius Plate is part of the 2.4 mm Variable Angle LCP Distal Radius System. The plates are anatomically contoured to match the anatomy of the distal radius, and are designed to address both simple and complex fractures.

Indications for Use

The 2.4 mm Variable Angle LCP Two-Column Volar 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

Video & Animations

Two-Column Volar Distal Radius Plate Video Dr. Thomas Fischer, M.D. and Dr. Marc Richard, M.D. demonstrate surgical techniques using the VA LCP Two-Column Volar Distal Radius Plate, Extra-Long. This product offers variable angle screw technology and the DePuy Synthes two-column head design for treating simple and complex distal radius fractures. It is compatible with existing Distal Radius instruments means a shorter learning curve and the option for 2.4 mm screws throughout the plate, potentially eliminating the need for additional sets in the OR.

Features & Benefits

  • 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
  • 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
  • Two columns allow visualization of the fracture and independent fine contouring of the radial and intermediate columns
  • Specific screw holes for fixation of radial styloid and support of the lunate facet and distal radioulnar joint
  • Anatomic shape fits close to the volar ridge with rounded edges to minimize soft tissue irritation
  • Three head sizes accommodate patient anatomy: narrow with 6-hole head and standard with 6-hole head and 7-hole head
  • Guide blocks are also available, which provide guided drilling and screw insertion in the predefined nominal angle
