About this product

Division: Trauma
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.

Small Fragment Locking Compression Plate with screws
 

Indications for Use

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.

Features & Benefits

  • The Locking Compression Plates (LCP) have the following LC-DCP features:
    • Uniform hole spacing
    • Load (compression) and neutral screw positions
  • Locking compression plates have combination locking and compression holes (Combi holes)
  • Combi holes allow placement of standard cortex and cancellous bone screws on one side or threaded conical locking screws on the opposite side of each hole
  • Holes in straight and reconstruction plates are oriented so that the compression component of the hole is always directed toward the middle of the plate
  • Screws compatible with locking compression plates found the Small Fragment LCP system include:
    • Non-locking screws:
    • 2.7 mm cortex screws: may be used in the distal locking holes; compress plate to the bone; fully threaded shaft
    • 3.5 mm shaft screws: may be used in the DCU portion of the Combi hole in the plate shaft or in round locking holes; compress plate to bone or create axial compression; partially threaded shaft
    • 3.5 mm cortex screws (hex & T15 StarDrive): may be used in the DCU portion of the Combi hole in the plate shaft or in round locking holes; compress plate to bone or create axial compression; fully threaded shaft
    • 3.5 mm locking screws (T15 StarDrive): used in the locking portion of the Combi holes or in round locking holes; create a locked, fixed-angle construct; fully threaded shaft
    • 4.0 mm cancellous bone screws: may be used in the DCU portion of the Combi hole in the plate shaft or in round locking holes; compress plate to bone or create axial compression; fully or partially threaded shaft
  • Plates and screws available in stainless steel or titanium
