Characteristics

  • Applications:

    femur

  • Part of bone:

    proximal

Description

• Plate Features
•The two proximal plate holes are threaded and accept 7.3 mm cannulated screws (locking, conical fully threaded, or conical partially threaded).
•The third locking hole is threaded to accept 5.0 mm cannulated locking screws. (Necessity of this screw is fracture configuration dépendent and should be identified during preoperative planning.)
•The holes in the shaft of the plate are combi-holes that accept 5.0 mm locking screws in the threaded portion of the hole and 4.5 mm cortex screws in the DCU
•portion.natomically contoured to approximate the latéral aspect of the proximal fémur.
•Plates specifically designed for left or right fémur to accommodate average fémoral neck antiversion.
•Plate lengths allow spanning of the entire diaphysis in segmentai fracture patterns.
Use of locking screws provides the option of an angular stable construct independent of bone quality.
Plate can be tensioned to create a load-sharing construct.
Manufactured of implant quality 316LVM stainless Steel and titanium.
The three proximal screw holes are at the following •angles to the plate shaft:
•First proximal hole (7.3 mm): 95°
•Second proximal hole (7.3 mm): 120°
Third proximal hole (5.0 mm): 135°
