The new Variable Angle Locking Hand System provides an extensive range of basic and specialty plates for fracture repair and deformity correction.

The system consists of 40 different plates, available in stainless steel and titanium, including fragment-specific plates designed for lateral and dorsal application.

It is the first system to market with 1.3 mm locking screws for hand plating, and includes anatomically pre-contoured plates and color-coded instrumentation.

The Variable Angle Locking Hand System has four key features:

Versatility

  • • For greater surgical options

Low-profile & Pre-contoured Plates

  • • Designed to reduce potential soft tissue irritation

Comprehensive Instrumentation

  • • Designed for ease of use

Strength & Stability

  • • With Locked Plating

  • Open reduction and internal fixation of fractures,mal-unions, and non-unions
  • Following excision of benign bone tumors
  • Replantations and reconstructions
  • Arthrodeses of joints involving small bones
  • Osteotornies, including deformity correction such as rotation, lengthening, shortening
  • Pathological fractures, including impending pathologic fractures
