Locking DHS Plate (Dynamic Hip Screw Plate) Specification

SKU: FS-145 Category:


Locking DHS Plate (Dynamic Hip Screw Plate) is designed to provide strong and stable internal fixation of a variety of intertrochanteric, subtrochanteric and basilar neck fractures, with minimal soft tissue irritation.

Locking DHS Plate (Dynamic Hip Screw Plate) Specification
⦁ Plates are made of 316L stainless steel and Titanium.
⦁ Locking ⦁ DHS Plate  are available in a wide range of sizes (2 to 20 holes) and barrel angles (130 degree, 135 degree, 140 degree, 145 degree), with 38 mm (standard) or 25 mm (short) barrels, for varied clinical situations.
⦁ The number of screw holes per plate length is maximized, without compromising plate strength. This allows an increased number of fixation points with a smaller incision.
⦁ Combi holes in the DHS side plate allow angulation of 4.5 mm cortex screws, 5 mm Locking Screws, for lag screw fixation of medial fragments, and allow axial compression and multiple-screw fixation of the main fragment in subtrochanteric fractures with shaft extension.
⦁ The DHS/DCS lag screw, available from 50 mm to 150 mm lengths, easily glides within the Locking DHS plate barrel for controlled collapse and impaction of fragments. When the fracture requires additional intraoperative compression, the DHS/DCS compression screw can be used; only one size compression
screw is needed.
⦁ Two flats within the plate barrel correspond to the two-flat design of the DHS/DCS lag screw, preventing rotation of the lag screw within the barrel. The two-flat design also eases insertion of the plate over the DHS/DCS lag screw.
⦁ The Locking DHS plates have a low-profile design, reducing the risk of trochanteric bursitis.
⦁ The DHS instruments provide direct measurements throughout the DHS procedure, allowing proper reaming, tapping and lag screw insertion depth. The built-in stop and locking nut on the DHS triple reamer prevent over-reaming.
⦁ General Instruments are available for Locking DHS 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


Locking DHS Plate (Dynamic Hip Screw Plate) Uses
The Locking DHS Plate is indicated for the following fractures of the proximal femur:
⦁ Pertrochanteric fractures of type A1 and A2
⦁ Intertrochanteric fractures of type A3
⦁ Basilar neck fractures B1, B2, B3
⦁ Subtrochanteric fractures
The DHS is indicated for stable fractures, and unstable fractures in which a stable medial buttress can be reconstructed. The DHS provides controlled collapse and compression of fracture fragments. This results in stable fixation and prevents undue stress concentration on the implant

DHS Contraindications
Plate is contraindicated for use in areas with active or latent infection or insufficient quantity or quality of bone.
Locking DHS Plate Precautions
⦁ Confirm functionality of ⦁ instruments and check for wear during reprocessing. Replace worn or damaged instruments prior to use.
⦁ It is recommended to use the instruments identified for this plate.
⦁ Handle devices with care and dispose worn bone cutting instruments in a sharps container.
⦁ Always irrigate and apply suction for removal of debris potentially generated during implantation or removal.
Dynamic Hip Screw Plate Warnings
⦁ Plate can break during use (when subjected to excessive forces). While the surgeon must make the final decision on removal of the broken part based on associated risk in doing so, we recommend that whenever possible and practical for the individual patient, the broken part should be removed. Be aware that implants are not as strong as native bone. Implants subjected to substantial loads may fail.
⦁ Instruments, screws and cut plates may have sharp edges or moving joints that may pinch or tear user’s glove or skin.
⦁ Take care to remove all fragments that are not fixated during the surgery.
⦁ While the surgeon must make the final decision on implant removal, we recommend that whenever possible and practical for the individual patient, fixation devices should be removed once their service as an aid to healing is accomplished. Implant removal should be followed by adequate post-operative management to avoid refracture.
General Adverse Events
As with all major surgical procedures, risks, side effects and adverse events can occur. While many possible reactions may occur, some of the most common include: Problems resulting from anesthesia and patient positioning (e.g. nausea, vomiting, dental injuries, neurological impairments, etc.), thrombosis, embolism, infection, nerve and/or tooth root damage or injury of other critical structures including blood vessels, excessive bleeding, damage to soft tissues incl. swelling, abnormal scar formation, functional impairment of the musculoskeletal system, pain, discomfort or abnormal sensation due to the presence of the device, allergy or hypersensitivity reactions, side effects associated with hardware prominence, loosening, bending, or breakage of the device, mal-union, non-union or delayed union which may lead to breakage of
the implant, reoperation.
