Features & Benefits

Unicortical locking screws offer angular stability for optimal purchase and reduced stress on bone. Locking screws perform drilling, tapping, and locking to the plate. Optimized screw position in the condyles to avoid intercondylar notch and patellofemoral joint and maximize bone purchase. Anatomic shape of the plate and locked construct makes intraoperative contouring unnecessary. Percutaneous, submuscular insertion of the plate does not disrupt the cortical blood supply.
