femur compression plate / femoral periprosthetic fracture / mid-shaft
femur, femoral periprosthetic fracture
Part of bone:
3.5 mm and 4.5 mm Curved Locking Compression Plate (LCP®) System
The DePuy Synthes Trauma Locking Compression Plate (LCP®) System is part of a stainless steel and titanium plate screw system that merges locking screw technology with conventional plating techniques.Features & Benefits
Combi hole allows the surgeon to choose between conventional plating techniques, locked plating techniques, or a combination of both
Threaded hole section for locking screws provides ability to create fixed-angle constructs
Smooth dynamic compression unit (DCU) hole section for standard screws allows for Load (compression) and neutral screw positions
Limited-contact plate design reduces plate-to-bone contact, thus limiting vascular trauma
The Locking Compression Plates (LCP) have the following LC-DCP features:
40° of longitudinal screw angulation
7° of transverse screw angulation
Uniform hole spacing
Load (compression) and neutral screw positions
The DePuy Synthes 3.5 mm Curved LCP Plates are intended for fixation of fractures, osteotomies and nonunions of the clavicle, scapula, olecranon, humerus, radius, pelvis, distal tibia and fibula, particularly in osteopenic bone for adult patients.
The DePuy Synthes 4.5 mm Curved LCP Plates are intended for fixation of various long bones, such as the humerus, femur, and tibia. They are also for use in fixation of periprosthetic fractures, osteopenic bone, and nonunions or malunions in adult patients.
The 3.5 mm and 4.5 mm Curved LCP Plates are also intended for fracture fixation of diaphyseal and metaphyseal areas of long bones in pediatric patients.
