The 3.5 mm LCP® Medial Distal Tibia Plate, without tab is part of the Synthes LCP system that merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques.
Fixation with the 3.5 mm LCP Medial Distal Tibia Plate without tab has many similarities to traditional plate fixation methods, with a few important improvements. Locking screws provide the ability to create a fixed-angle construct while using standard AO plating techniques. Locking capability is important for fixed-angle constructs in osteopenic bone or multifragment fractures where screw purchase is compromised. These screws do not rely on plate-to-bone compression to resist patient load, but function similarly to multiple, small, angled blade plates.
The Synthes LCP Distal Tibia Plates are intended for fixation of complex intra- and extra-articular fractures and osteotomies of the distal tibia, as a part of the Synthes small fragment LCP system.
