4.5/5 mm Locking T Buttress Plate Design
4.5/5 mm Locking T Buttress Plate is used to rigidly hold in place fractures at the end of long bones, especially at the knee and ankle, where the fracture site experiences large compressive and other distorting forces.
To provide adequate fixation, T Buttress Plate is broadened and carefully contoured at the joint end of the plate. For this reason, it is often referred to as periarticular plates.
The periarticular surfaces of long bone are complex having several surfaces and unique topographic feature at each surface. Buttress plates are contoured to a particular surface (medial, lateral, anterior, etc.), and thus several different plate designs may be necessary for an individual periarticular region.
The contoured, periarticular portion of the plate give these plates a three dimensional configuration.
4.5/5 mm Locking T Buttress Plate Specification
Plates available holes are 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 10.
Plate has combi holes and round holes. Combi holes allow fixation with locking screws in the threaded section and cortex screws in the dynamic compression unit section for compression.
The shaft holes accept 5 mm locking screws in the threaded portion or 4.5 mm cortical screws or 5 mm Locking cancellous screws in the compression portion. Distal locking holes in plate head accept 5 mm locking screws or 4.5 mm cortical screws.
4.5/5 mm Locking T Buttress Plate allow implant placement to address the individual fracture pattern.
Choice of different lengths of plate eliminates the need to cut plates.
Pre-contoured plate to match anatomical shape.
Available in both Titanium and Stainless steel.
locking plate increases construct stability, decreases risk of screw back-out and subsequent loss of reduction. It also reduces the need for precise anatomic plate contouring and minimizes the risk of stripped screw holes.
A complete Instruments Set is available for 4.5/5 mm Locking T Buttress Plate. General Instruments are available for this plate such as Plate Bending Press, Plate Holding Forceps, Plate Bending Pliers, Bone Holding Forceps, Bone Elevators, Bone Cutter, Bone Nibbler, Depth Gauge, Sleeve, Screw Driver, Trocar Sleeve etc.
4.5/5 mm Locking T Buttress Plate Uses
4.5/5 mm Locking T Buttress Plate is indicated for fixation of fractures, osteotomies and non-unions of the clavicle, scapula, olecranon, humerus, radius, ulna, pelvis, distal tibia, fibula, particularly in osteopenic bones.
