Fractures involving the
articular face and metaphysis of the distal tibia are called pilon fractures,
which account for 1% of the lower extremity fractures and approximately 7-10%
of all tibial fractures.
Pilon Locking Plate,It is designed to stabilize fractures and deformities occurring distal to the tibia. Distal to the tibia; It can be placed in the anterior, medial, anteromedial or anterolateral part. The distal of the plate can be cut or contoured from the right or left part for anatomical alignment to the tibia Through the conical end of the plate, it's placement on the bone is easier.
It has 4 different hole numbers from 3 to 9. The plate can be used with Ø2.7mm, Ø3.5mm and Ø4.0mm locking cortical or cancellous screws according to the surgeon's preference.
