Tibia plateau fractures make
up 1-2% of all fractures and are in the third rank of adult fractures in terms
of their incidence during 50 years of life. Plateau fractures involving the
tibia upper end joint range widely from complex fractures caused by mild
Proximal Tibia Lateral Anatomic Locking Plate is designed to stabilize fractures and deformities occurring in the lateral part proximal to the tibia.
It has 2 types, right and left and it has 8 different hole numbers from 3 to 17. The plate can be used with Ø2.7mm, Ø3.5mm and Ø4.0mm locking cortical or cancellous screws according to the surgeon's preference.
The plate has an anatomical shape and profile. It is designed to minimize soft tissue irritation. Thanks to the conical end of the plate, its placement on the bone is easier.
It provides axial compression thanks to its combi holes, while offering stronger stability with locking screw holes. With the Kirschner wire holes, the plate can be temporarily fixed to the tibia, broken pieces can be reduced and the position of the plate relative to the bone can be adjusted.
