- Distal Femur Locking Plate
DetailsThe Condylar LCP is a modification of the former condylar buttress plate, which was used over the last three decades for treatment of fractures. The major problem with use of the condylar buttress plate was varus collapse and loss of fixation of the distal femoral articular block, especially with a short distal segment and/or osteoporosis. The major improvement in the Condylar LCP, as compared to the condylar buttress plate, has been the addition of locking-head screws in the plate, producing angular stability. The locking head screws distally have prevented varus collapse, even in cases of osteoporosis. Locking-head screws both proximally and distally have made loss of fixation rare.
