Category: Plates and Screws
The Synthes Small Fragment Locking Compression Plate (LCP) is part of plate and screw system that merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques. Locking screws provide the ability to create a fixed-angle construct while utilizing familiar AO plating techniques. A fixed-angle construct provides advantages in osteopenic bone or multifragmentary fractures where traditional screw purchase is compromised.
Synthes Small Fragment Locking Compression Plates (LCP) are intended for fixation of fractures, osteotomies, and nonunions of the clavicle, scapula, olecranon, humerus, radius, ulna, pelvis, distal tibia, and fibula, particularly in osteopenic bone.
