TRUE LOCK Distal Tibia Anterolateral Anatomic Plate
TRUE LOCK Distal Tibia Anterolateral Anatomic Plates are indicated for;
Extra-articular and simple intra-articular distal tibia fractures
Distal tibia fracture, percutaneous or reducible by limited arthrotomy
Distal tibia fracture extending into the diaphyseal area
Anatomical plate; right & left
different hole option between 5-17
TRUE LOCK Distal Tibia Anterolateral Anatomic Plate are made of Ti6Al4V ELI material (ASTM F136)
Combi-holes provide the flexibility of axial com- pression and locking capability throughout the length of the plate shaft.
The head of the plate features four locking holes that accept locking screws Ø 3.5 mm, cortex screws Ø 2.7 mm and Ø 3.5 mm or cancellous bone screws Ø 4.0 mm.
Four distal head holes angle 7 degree inferiorly to capture the posterior malleolus.
Kirschner wire holes in the head, parallel to the joint, accept Kirschner wires to temporarily fix fragments and show proximity to the joint .
At the cancellous part of the bone near the joint, 4,0 mm cancellous locking screw option supports plate and screw fit well; prevents it from pull out.
